[su_right_ad]Scott Walker went to Texas to visit the border, but refused to address his position on immigration.

The likely Republican presidential contender remained invisible to reporters on Friday during a visit that could have given him a chance to spotlight illegal immigration and border security.

Instead, the two-term governor arrived in Texas after reports that he expressed support for giving immigrants a pathway to citizenship during a recent closed-door meeting. Walker aides dispute those accounts and say he opposes what he calls “amnesty.”

New Hampshire GOP chairwoman Jennifer Horn, who organized the meeting, said Walker voiced support for providing a path to legal status but not citizenship.

Walker toured the border with Gov. Greg Abbott.

    just so you know – it should be “sight” and not “site” in the headline.

    To the hard core FOX-loving base which Walker or anyone else will have to win in order to secure the nomination, a pathway to legal status is still amnesty. It has been an interesting weekend in GOP politics.

    Rand Paul throws his Libertarian base under the bus opining about gay marriage demonstrating a need for a spiritual revival. Now Scott Walker is touting amnesty, no matter what weasel words his assistants use to claim otherwise. Also, Hillary’s email server has been wiped and America does not give a sh*t.

    Can’t see how this is a good day for these factions of the GOP base. All I can say is, please nominate Ted Cruz. I won’t go as far as suggesting that Democrats should extend the GOP tradition by putting an empty chair on stage and nominating it. But I do think the Democratic nominee (Hilary or not) would easily beat the darling of the American right and send him back to Texas where at least the harm he does will be localized.

    Walker’s expertise is restricted to destroying labor unions, undermining public education, and screwing the middle class family.
    On any other topic, he cannot express an opinion or policy position until after he has consulted his Magic 8-Ball.

    But hey, at least he has a catchy campaign slogan: “I’ve got a Koch and a smile.”
