It looks good when it is said and written down, making the populous feel safe in knowing the government is working for them, but the walls “work as a symbol of a political goal, which is to show that you are secure within your territory”.
“Some people have asked us about that in New Hampshire”, Walker said.
When Walker was asked, in an interview with NBC News that published Sunday, if he would want a wall to go up with America’s northern neighbor, he answered that he believed it “is a legitimate issue”.
Repeating the construction feat along the U.S.’s northern border would have a hefty price tag.
Walker, who has made border security a central focus of his broader national security platform, told Todd “we need to secure the borders in general”, citing the southern border with Mexico as having the “most rampant spots” for illegal border crossings.
Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker thinks the U.S. should explore the prospect of building a wall along the longest worldwide border in the world. The Inquisitr has reported on Trump’s stand that the 14th Amendment won’t hold up in court.
He added that the idea is just one piece of his broader approach to security issues, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes.
In 1997, a Palestinian named Abu Maizar was charged with conspiracy to blow up a New York subway station after being caught trying to cross from Canada.
Walker probably doesn’t know the issue to that level of detail.
It would help to keep out illegal immigrants, terrorists and criminals from the country, he said. We don’t talk about about a northern border – if this is about securing the border from Islam, from potential terrorists coming over.
Walker’s Canadian wall wasn’t the only eyebrow-raising idea that came from a GOP candidate this weekend. His claims echoed that of Judicial Watch, which said earlier this year that ISIS was operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso in Ciudad Juarez.
“You can’t build a wall in rugged terrain like exists there”. However, he’s suggested support for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, saying his state’s ban on same-sex marriage and pro-gay non-discrimination law struck the right balance in the state.
Currently, a federal court in Toledo, Ohio is weighing a lawsuit against the Border Patrol, which accuses them of overwhelmingly targeting Latino residents for stops and searches.
Bush dismissed Trump’s plan as impossible and massively costly.
Paul also mocked GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s claims that he would build a wall along the southern border and force Mexico to pay for it.
