Walker’s Wavering Immigration Stance


During a question-and-answer session, Walker said that undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States should not be deported, the Republican source said.

Though Walker once supported a path to citizenship as part of comprehensive immigration overhaul, his New Hampshire comments are at odds with more recent assurances that he opposes what he calls “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants. Walker admitted in a Fox News interview earlier this month that he changed his position on the issue.

The newly-reported comments are also in conflict with the sentiments of many conservatives who hold sway in Republican primaries and fiercely oppose the idea of granting citizenship to undocumented immigrants.

Walker’s remarks were reported Thursday by the Wall Street Journal, citing two attendees who confirmed the comments on-the-record. One Republican at the dinner, Franklin Mayor Ken Merrifield, told the Journal that Walker said illegal immigrants should “get to the back of the line for citizenship.”

    Don’t know why the sigh Owen. The plain fact is Gov. Walker will say whatever he needs to, dependent on the audience. He has the moral backbone of a jellyfish who has had one moral underpinning during his entire career…get Scott Walker elected. He has never held a job other than elective office from the time he failed to graduate from college to the present.
