Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday responded to Donald Trump’s newly-released immigration position paper by saying the plan he is offering is “very similar.”

Asked on “Fox and Friends” if he gives Trump’s plan a thumbs up, Walker said: “I haven’t looked at all the details of his, but the things I’ve heard are very similar to the things I mentioned.”

Walker, speaking to host Steve Doocy, referenced his appearance earlier this year on “Fox News Sunday” when he “laid out what I thought we should do” on immigration.

Walker said that includes securing the border “which means build the wall, have the technology, the personnel to make sure it’s safe and secure.”

The governor said he would enforce the law, “which I’ve said for some time means … making sure we don’t have sanctuary cities.”

As for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country, Walker said “I’ve said no amnesty. I don’t believe in amnesty, which I think is similar to what he said.”

Walker said he and Trump also agree “we should give priority to American working families and their wages, in a way that will improve the American economy.”
