Governor Scott Walker disagrees with Trump's push to ban Muslim travel to the U.S.

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Governor Scott Walker gave his response to Donald Trump's call to ban all Muslim travel to the U.S. while visiting Chippewa Falls Tuesday. 

"I think we need to remember that our founding principles were based in part on protecting religious liberties, and so I disagree with him on that," Walker said. "We should not be distinguishing people based on their religious beliefs."

Walker was in Chippewa Falls to announce a public-private partnership to increase broadband internet access in the area. The state awarded Chippewa County an almost $280,000 grant for its efforts. 

Combined with funds from the county and the Wisconsin Independent Network, over $530,000 will help fund a broadband line that stretches over five miles connecting the Lake Wissota Business Park and the Riverside Industrial Park.
