Walker: Make legal immigration easier

Washington (CNN) – Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Friday that the key to fixing the country's immigration system is by making it easier for qualified immigrants to come to the United States legally, not by solely focusing on what to do with the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants.

"From an immigration standpoint, it is simple," Walker, a Republican, said. "If you want to come into America today legally, it is very, very difficult, from my point of view, to do so on a timely basis… We should be finding a way for that to be easier to do in the United States."

Wisconsin Gov. Walker not ruling out a presidential bid

(CNN) – Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is leaving the door open for a presidential bid in 2016, refusing to commit to serving out a second term. His description of the ideal White House candidate sounds like someone not unlike himself.

"I think it's got to be an outsider. I think both the presidential and the vice presidential nominee should either be a former or current governor - people who have done successful things in their states, who have taken on big reforms," he told ABC's Jonathan Karl in an interview that aired Sunday on "This Week."
