DFL Senior Caucus
The DFL Senior Caucus promotes the active participation of Minnesota seniors in the political process. Our caucus gives a voice to seniors in Minnesota elections and politics.
The goal of the caucus is to affect public policy by bringing focus and accountability to senior issues, and by working to elect public officials who support:
- Affordable health care
- Fair and equitable tax policies
- Sound transportation systems
- Fair prescription-drug coverage
- Affordable housing
- Safe and livable communities

WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO PUT UP WITH ITBORDER FENCEIf building a 1,989 mile fence along the border between the U.S.and Mexico border at an estimated cost of $21.6 billion dollars wouldstop illegal immigrants from entering this country, then in might beworthwhile having a discussion. Most illegals are here because theysimply over stayed their visa.You can’t build this wall across rivers. People wanting to cross theborder can simply swim around it, go under it, or go over it. Trust me,people will find a way.If we care anything about how other countries perceive us, then wewould not build this wall. We have always considered ourselves as anexample to the rest of the world; I don’t think this is the right kind ofexample.The job of building the wall is no small task and the environmentaleffects on animal migration and rivers could be serious. Much of Texasborder is private ranchland and hundreds of lawsuits have been filledin opposition to the Government taking this land.The cost to maintain this fence once it is built will cost millions ofdollars per year, but maybe President Trump can get Mexico to pay forthis too.As long as we have businesses that provide jobs as agricultureworkers, hotel maids, construction jobs, restaurants jobs, etc. peoplewill come into the country. What we really need is immigration reform..DRAYPETE@COMCAST.NET Don Peterson952-210-8433 500 Greenhaven Dr.Burnsville, Mn. 55306
