    WASHINGTON -- It didn't take long for Donald Trump's surging presidential campaign to drag his fellow Republican rivals further to the right.

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said on Monday that his immigration proposals were "very similar" to those of the real estate magnate, who over the weekend released a tough new plan exclusively focused on enforcement and cracking down on unauthorized immigrants. Walker said that he, too, wanted to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, which is one of Trump's most controversial proposals.

    "Earlier in the year, I was on 'Fox News Sunday' and laid out what I thought we should do, which is secure the border, which means build the wall, have the technology, have the personnel to make sure it's safe and secure," Walker said in an interview with Fox News.

    He ain't building shit. Politicians don't do anything. They just talk about doing things and at the most delegate the duties to people who actually do stuff.

    Unless it surrounds the entire country it's a bad idea.

    He probably wants a helicopter with his name on it too but Trump beat him to that one also.

    walker was against a wall up until he declared his candidacy, and a wall is the least of it. Trump's immigration policy paper is a beautiful document.

    Building a border 'wall' is not as simple as these guys think, especially in Texas.

    There are many ranchers in Texas who do not want a 'wall' built on their land, that's why there's so many gaps in the fence in Texas.

    The ranchers want access to the river as they have for centuries.

    Trump or Walker,would have to take the land, by some means, from the landowners and build the fence on that land which would effectively cut them off from the river.

    It's going to interesting to watch this play out if Trump gets elected and tries to keep his campaign promise.

    As for Walker, I don't expect him to have the wherewithal to actually build a wall so, I'm not concerned about his promises.

    Walker is a total asshole and should be pelted with rotten tomatoes everywhere he goes.

    It's not going to be that interesting. Any legal obstructions are going to be easily passed by claims of eminent domain and/or security. Any practical obstructions are going to be alleviated by simple feeder canals or viaducts.

    What they've been doing in Brownsville and other areas is just building the barrier several hundred yards from the river and isolating homes and ranches on the other side.

    Maybe it's working, I don't know.

    More walls just means more tunnels. There are smarter ways to close the border.

    The ranchers are also the first ones to bitch about the never ending parade of illegals. They need to decide what they want, exactly.
