Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is planning to tour the U.S.-Mexico border with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Friday, the Texas Tribune reported.

Mr. Walker, who is laying the groundwork for a possible White House run, acknowledged recently that his view on immigration has changed, saying he opposes amnesty.

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, another potential White House contender in 2016, famously invited President Obama to tour the border with him last year. Texas and other states have sued to stop Mr. Obama’s executive actions on immigration announced last year in a case that is currently on appeal after a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction last month.

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who on Monday entered the presidential race, has also been an outspoken opponent of Mr. Obama and his handling of the immigration issue.
