    Default Scott Walker shows how it's done confronting video ambush by illegal alien family

    Thomas Lifson
    July 21, 2015


    The illegal immigration activists who set up a video ambush of Scott Walker in Plainfield, Iowa thought they could really embarrass him, but Walker deftly turned the tables on them. The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] account (video below):

    As presidential hopeful Scott Walker toured a farm in this tiny town where he lived as a child, he was confronted by an undocumented worker from Mexico who is living in Wisconsin and demanded to know why Walker does not support President Obama's plan to give temporary status to some undocumented workers, including parents of children who were born in the United States.

    "We're a nation of laws," Walker, the Republican governor of Wisconsin, repeatedly told Jose Flores, 38, who was joined by two of his four children, Luis, 7, and Leslie, 13, who had tears rolling down her cheeks throughout the exchange.

    A little girl crying is the Kryptonite of the progressive no-borders crowd. William Jacobson of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] calls it the “why do you want to deport my daddy” strategy. His verdict is that Walker handled the strategy “[Only registered and activated users can see links. ].” Even the Post was impressed with Walker’s response:

    It was an opportunity for Walker to demonstrate how he calmly fights back against challenges from activists. He was forceful as he told the Flores family that immigrants must follow the rules, but he added, "I completely sympathize with the situation you're all in and others are in."

    One of the activists, Sam Freeman of Wisconsin's Voces de la Frontera, cut the governor off and shouted, "So that's why you want to separate their family?"

    Walker curtly said that he wanted to talk only with the family and that their plight is the reason the United States must go forward with "putting in place a logical system." To address illegal immigration, Walker said, the nation needs to secure the border and enforce its laws before it can focus on other issues. An immigration system cannot come at the cost of American workers and their wages, he added.

    "The president had years to deal with this throughout the legitimate legislative process," Walker said. "He had his own party in charge for the first two years … he was in office."

    John Hinderaker of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] sees how this issue and Walker’s response could be a huge plus:

    What is most interesting to me is how Jose Flores came to confront Governor Walker:

    [T]he Flores family waited by his campaign bus and approached him again, an exchange that was captured by reporters and three immigration activists, one of whom drove the family to Iowa.

    So the whole encounter was a setup, orchestrated by a group of pro-illegal immigration activists. There is a cognitive dissonance surrounding the issue of illegal immigration: liberal activists and most beltway denizens believe that opposition to illegal immigration makes Republicans look bad. The rest of the country thinks it makes them look good.

    The Post tells us about the Flores family:

    Flores, who lives in Waukesha and works for a medical supply factory….

    So, is this one of those jobs that Americans won’t do? The Democrats are always railing about high-quality factory jobs that are being “shipped overseas,” to the detriment of American workers. But for some reason, they think it is great for workers from those same countries to come illegally to the United States and take jobs away from American workers. And Flores’s employer is violating the law by employing him. Why is that company, obviously known to the Post and others, not being prosecuted? The most important step that needs to be taken to combat illegal immigration is to initiate criminal prosecutions against employers who hire illegal aliens, and send some of the scofflaws to prison.

    Illegal immigration is the issue that Donald Trump has been riding. But calm, polite, and gutsy Scott Walker, governor of the state where Flores is taking a good factory job away from an American, is in a position to press the issue of the employer’s misconduct. Carol Brown e-mailed the following, which I think is worth considering as we evaluate the GOP field:

    Walker was gracious, soft-spoken, and yet quite clear. He also exhibited what appeared to be genuine sensitivity to the little boy and handled the entire situation quite masterfully. I think. (snip)

    He seems very present and very genuine. And in his own low-key way, he really does take command. And obviously he wasn't able to accomplish what he did in Wisconsin without possessing leadership skills in a big way. His style is just not super charismatic and certainly not bombastic.

    It is still far too early to know who will emerge, but Walker’s low-key approach to Trump’s marquee issue may be a way for the GOP to find its path forward, regaining the allegiance of the alienated Trump supporters, but without the abrasiveness of Trump himself. We’ll see. None of the candidates, including Walker, is without a downside. But we can expect wave after wave of ambushes for whoever becomes the nominee, and Walker clearly has some skill in dealing with them.

    Here’s the video:

    Low key is right, sounds like he's dancing to me....a passionate slow dance, Don't be afraid to tell them Scott, We need somebody in the GOP that is not afraid to hurt some Obama crowds of free hand outs.

    Watch the video when Sam Freeman of Wisconsin's Voces de la Frontera, cut the governor off and shouted, "So that's why you want to separate their family?"

    If you notice body language at all....watch the Illegal take a step back leaving his kids out in front of him and Scott Walker take step towards him. I call that confronting the situation head on.

    Trying to 'splain logically the concept of Rules of Law and obedience to them to an Illegal Immigrant Hispanic is an exercise in futility. There is no logic or sense of law in these people. Just greed and adolescent emotion appeal. Mexican government craps on its own people, but in America, "all the way, Jose." Free food stamps, welfare, schooling, walk-in Emergency Room free medical care, living in the shadows and avoiding the taxmen, drivers licenses and no insurance to pay, plus living in a vastly improved environment of cleanliness and protection from what is the norm in that sewer called Mexico.. And them there stoopid gringo's......easiest marks and victims. It's "Fat City", hommies.

    Walker should have called ICE. It would have gotten him thousands of legal votes!

    It seems the presidential nomination is all about everybody except the real American Citizens.

    There is a huge difference between in-your-face showmanship pandering to the frustrated (which leads to lack of independent thought) masses and common courtesy combined with basic decency.

    Gov. Walker made his point without resorting to exaggeration and lies. Although he quickly shut down the outside agitator, he did so without screaming invectives.

    All of this shows an organized mind and self constraint, attributes we should be looking for in our leaders.

    It's not easy to tease out the information value of this.

    Trump is #1 because he's willing to raise the issues others will not, and give the answer that many have longed to hear. Walker, being far less stupid than the rest of the Republicans running for President, has proved that he has learned quickly from Trump's gambit (a very successful gambit) and shown that he can do the same thing with his own trademark.

    That puts Walker in a position to credibly challenge Trump.

    But this is not the only possible conclusion. It's equally credible that the Liberal media will give favorable coverage to anyone who is challenging Trump. This whole thing could easily have been spun the other way around.

    Both options are reasonable and credible. I'm treating this as inconclusive until a trend emerges.

    And that difference is lost on the Left, Progressives, DEMOCRATS and their mobs. Courtesy and decency are way undervalued by at least half the people in this country. It was this sense of "courtesy, decency and polite comportment" that prevented McCain and Romney from going at Obama's throat in the campaigns. But they were gentlemanly losers, nevertheless.

    Given the choice, I'll take a leader over an entertainer.
