During a stop in Plainfield, Iowa on Sunday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who has been leading in the polls there for months, was confronted by illegal immigrants over his position on the president's executive amnesty.

Jose Flores accompanied by his wife and two of his four children spoke to the governor about his position on illegal immigration, The Washington Post reported.

The illegal immigrant and his wife fear being deported while their children, who were born in the U.S., will be left behind in America. Flores asked the governor why he did not support Obama's executive amnesty, which would have protected the couple from the nation's immigration laws.

"I'm not blocking the law," Walker said. "We are a nation of laws and unfortunately after the president said 22 times last year that he couldn't make the law himself, he decided he was going to change the law and the court said you can't do this. My point is you got to follow the law and follow the process."

He told the couple he sympathized with them, but repeatedly stated that they needed to follow the rule of law.

Walker also said several times that the president had many chances to go through Congress especially when Democrats controlled both the House and Senate.

Walker has received criticism for his changing position on immigration and support for amnesty.
