Governor Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) seems to be in support for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. During an interview with the Wausau Daily Herald, he stated that the U.S should handle things for the people already in the country and that if the citizenship process wasn’t as “cumbersome” as it currently is, there would be no problems with immigrants staying in the U.S without the required papers and called the immigration system broken.

Walker was also open about shrugging off the border concerns of his fellow Republicans who want a wall and security as opposed to fixing the nation’s immigration system. Walker stated, “You hear some people talk about border security or a wall or all that, to me, I don’t know that you need any of that if you had a better, saner way to let people into the country in the first place.”
Of people who entered the country legally or illegally, Walker said that “If people want to come here and work hard and benefit, I don’t care whether they come from Mexico or Ireland or Germany or Canada or South Africa or anywhere else, I want them here.”
