    Scott Walker: Islamic Terrorists Likely Crossing U.S.-Mexico Border

    Islamic terrorists are “most likely” smuggling themselves across the Mexican border, Scott Walker said Friday.

    The Wisconsin governor’s campaign billed his speech at the Citadel in Charleston, S.C., as a major foreign-policy address, but Mr. Walker’s remarks represented little new in the way of policy proposals. Instead he blasted President Barack Obama, Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton and his GOP presidential rivals while also arguing for his strident immigration policy.

    “We need to admit that our southern border is riddled with holes,” Mr. Walker said. “You see, Islamic extremists and other terrorists are most likely using the same trails into our homeland as the drug cartels, the weapons smugglers and the human traffickers.”

    Mr. Walker, for more than a decade an advocate of a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, adopted a hardline stance on the issue this spring. Last week, in response to GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s immigration proposal, Mr. Walker appeared to endorse ending birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants, before eventually saying Sunday that he wouldn’t seek to alter the 14th Amendment.

    He said Friday that money is no object with regard to border security.

    “We must secure our border at any cost,” he said.

    Mr. Walker accused Mrs. Clinton of pushing for the military action that removed Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi and then abandoning American personnel in the country.

    “Hillary Clinton pushed for the war in Libya. Then, then she stood by the caskets of Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. She stood by their caskets, looked in the eyes of their parents and pointed to a YouTube video she knew, she knew was not the cause of their deaths in Benghazi,” Mr. Walker is to say. “That is outrageous.”

    Mr. Walker has made sometimes strained efforts to stress his foreign-policy bona fides throughout his campaign. In February he compared having the backbone to fight Islamic terrorism to his 2011 stand against public-sector labor activists in Wisconsin. And this week he called on Mr. Obama to cancel a September state visit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, even though Mr. Walker praised Mr. Xi during a 2013 trade mission to China. In 2012 Mr. Walker wore a pin bearing the American and Chinese flags while appearing on Chinese state television urging Chinese investors to invest in Wisconsin.

    Mr. Walker’s only reference to China during his Friday speech was attacking Mrs. Clinton for “downplay[ing] China’s abysmal human rights record.”

    “This is the result,” he said. “The Chinese are aggressively expanding their territory, building islands for military bases in the South China Sea.”

    Mr. Walker also slammed his GOP presidential rivals who have been less strident than he in opposing Mr. Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. Mr. Walker has said, if elected, he would terminate the Iran deal on his first day in office. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have each said doing so would be implausible.

    “Unlike others, I don’t need months or years to mull this over,” Mr. Walker said. “I don’t need to appoint a cabinet or consult a committee. Anybody who doesn’t know today the Iran deal is a bad deal is not ready to be commander-in-chief. I am ready to be the commander-in-chief on day one.”

    This article indicates that there are two of Scott Walker. He pounced on others errors without acknowledging his own. Will the Scott Walker who would be President, please step forward?
