An illegal immigrant named Jose Flores confronted Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker in an attempted gotcha moment, trying to get the governor to say something that would make him look heartless toward illegals.
Flores expressed concern for his family – he was accompanied by his two children – asking why Walker opposes President Obama’s executive amnesty orders.
Walker’s response was flawless – “We are a nation of laws.”
Well, at least we were right up until 2008.
It was a refrain that he repeated often.
Via BizPac Review:
“We are a nation of laws.”
GOP presidential candidate Scott Walker gave what was referred to as an “impressive” response as the victim of a set up confrontation by an illegal immigrant and two of his children.
He was firm yet empathetic.
Flores asked the Wisconsin governor why he opposed President Obama’s immigration executive actions that would keep his family intact.
“We are a nation of laws,” Walker told him several times, emphasizing that the president had ample opportunity to pass immigration legislation during his first two years in office when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress — yet he didn’t.

Legal Insurrection points out that the entire confrontation was set up by a pro-illegal immigrant group:

While Flores and others filming, presumably his cohorts in the setup, kept trying to bait Walker, the Wisconsin governor wouldn’t bend on his points – America is a nation of laws, and what Obama is trying to do is illegal.
“My point is that you have to follow the law, follow the process,” he told Flores. “No man or woman is above the law in this country — that’s the beauty of America.”
Comment – Are we still a nation of laws, or has President Obama blurred the lines so effectively that it’s difficult to tell anymore?
