WASHINGTON -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), a staunch advocate of beefing up security on the southern border, said Sunday he is open to building a wall on the U.S. border with Canada as well.

The Republican presidential candidate said the idea of building a northern wall was brought up to him during a recent town hall in New Hampshire.

"That is a legitimate issue for us to look at," Walker said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Republicans typically take a tough approach on securing the southern border, but few have said a wall should also be built along the U.S.-Canada border.

Walker reasoned that it's about much more than building a wall, arguing, "It starts with securing the homeland."

"It wasn't just about building a wall and securing our borders," he said. "It was also about making sure our intelligence community has the ability for counterterrorism and the ability to go after the infrastructure they need to protect us."

Talk of constructing a towering wall at the nation's southern border became a hot topic for Republicans after the first GOP debate and consistent mention of it by Republican front-

You got that right. Maybe that's the intent?

Canadians already leech off the US simply by proximity. You don't need to spend anything on defense when you border an ally with the most powerful military in the world.

It would be helpful for keeping american refugees from flooding Canada a lot more when the crunch comes.

It would be nice to stem the flow of hard drugs out of the States too.

Just so Walker understands, and I want to be very clear here... we're not paying for it.

Build away, Scott. Make it tall, topped with razor wire and make it coast to coast to (Alaskan) coast.

See if we Canadians give a rats behind.

Imagine the cheap labor workforce that would be necessary to make it "economical".

WHAT the hell FOR?
Have we been assaulted by CANADA?
Actually they would HAVE to seal the borders if they wanted an IRON CLAD martial law for another draft.
Now that women are being groomed for combat slots...

When America begins to look like a 'prison for profit', then every American could become 'cheap labor'.

No!!..because they are Canadians and that's reason enough for some folks during a political season.

Of course, for people who think the world is a war zone and all they have in mind is military and power. And you wonder why most of the world can't stand americans...

I love "build a wall" talk. The latest meaningless phrase for politicians to excite idiots with. Forget the task of a Northern wall. Simply building a wall across the Southern border would be an near impossible task, costing billions upon billions. And if it were ever accomplished? Well, you can't quite build a wall across the Gulf of Mexico, from Texas all the way to Florida, and then there's still the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Better wall them off also.

Simple stupidity.

Most walls are built to keep people IN.

I guess Walker needs to get some press somehow. It's hard to be more outlandish than Trump, but this wall idea does the trick.

Is he paying for it?

Scott, you want a wall - - you pay for it.

I know a few people named Scott. I'm sorry for them that they have to share the first name of this numbskull.
