Walker opposed to Arizona-style anti-immigration law

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker pauses for a moment in Madison

MADISON (WSAU)   Governor Scott Walker now says he would try to stop his fellow Republicans from passing an Arizona-style immigration crackdown. Walker said yesterday it would be a huge distraction, at a time when lawmakers should focus on creating jobs and training workers to fill vacant private sector posts.

This is the second time that Walker has flip-flopped on a Wisconsin immigration law. When he first ran for governor in 2010, he said he had serious concerns about the Arizona law – in which police are required to ask criminal suspects about their immigration status if the officers believe they’re in the U-S illegally. Walker changed his mind a few days after his initial comments – and Assembly Republican Don Pridemore of Hartford introduced an Arizona-style crackdown in the most recent session. The bill never went anywhere – and Pridemore has not said whether he’ll try passing it again in the new session which opens in January.
