Scott Walker: 'Logic-based' Immigration Policy Should Respond to Economy

By    |   Sunday, 26 Apr 2015 04:41 PM

U.S. immigration policy going forward should be driven by economic interests, says Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a likely GOP presidential contender.

"In particular, we need to make our priority the idea that we’re going to think first and foremost about American workers and American wages," Walker said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York.

Walker pointed to a few years ago when the economy was down, unemployment was high and labor participation was low. In such circumstances the United States needs to ensure "that we don’t have a huge opening in terms of the number of workers coming in when we flood the market with people looking for jobs," Walker told host John Catsimatidis.

"Conversely, when the economy gets better, we can adjust that accordingly," he said. "I’m not adding new restrictions. I’m saying the restrictions should be logic-based instead of what we have now, which are largely bureaucratic. And they should be driven by the economy."
