Walker MIA During Immigration Flap

Friday, 27 Mar 2015 08:11 PM

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker left a tour of the U.S.-Mexico border without addressing questions being raised about his stance 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.
