Scott Walker And Chris Christie Pander To Donald Trumpís Anti-Immigrant Base

Source: Outside the Beltway

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker took the immigration debate inside the Republican Party to the next level ... Itís not just the southern border:Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says itís ďlegitimateĒ to discuss building a wall separating the United States from Canada, as well.
...
Governor Walker isnít the only one pandering to the anti-immigrant crowd that Trump has attracted, Chris Christie is now suggesting that the Federal Government track immigrants the way FedEx tracks packages:
Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey said on Saturday that if he were elected president he would combat illegal immigration by creating a system to track foreign visitors the way FedExtracks packages.
...
Like Walker, Christieís idea here is less an serious proposal and more an effort to pander to the anti-immigrant sentiment that Trump has tapped into and which he whips up every chance he gets. If nothing else, this should tells us that the Trump phenomenon isnít as much of an anomaly of Republican politics as the more establishment wing of the party would like to believe. When other candidates start making suggesting like this and endorsing Trumpís idea of ending birthright citizenship, itís a sign that Trumpism is winning the debate in side the Republican Party, even if Trump himself doesnít end up winning the nomination.

2. Keeping in or out?

Only if Wanker ever got "elected", and then its purpose would be to keep millions of Americans from fleeing to Canada.

3. That was my thought. He needs a wall to stop people fleeing the draft...

 

because if Scott Walker gets elected he WILL start multiple wars that require a draft.

6. Oh come on now he would never suspend the constitution. He hasn't campaigned on that.

 

Oh, wait, it's Scott Walker. He might try.

7. I think he would try.

 

And the Republicans would probably go right along with him.

8. I was being sarcastic...

 

but I forgot the little thingie. I have not doubt he might try. He will try pretty much anything- and then blame whatever blows up in his face on underlings.
