Wisconsin governor: Building wall along Canadian border a legitimate issue

WASHINGTON — A prominent U.S. presidential candidate appeared to entertain the idea of building a border wall with Canada when pressed Sunday in an interview about national security.

The issue was raised with Republican contender Scott Walker in a talk-show interview. He didn’t bring it up himself, but didn’t shoot it down when asked.

“Some people have asked us about that (idea) in New Hampshire. They raised some very legitimate concerns, including some law-enforcement folks that brought that up to me at one of our town-hall meetings about a week and a half ago,” the Wisconsin governor said during an interview with NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

“So that is a legitimate issue for us to look at.”
