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

BORDER FENCE

  • WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO PUT UP WITH IT
    BORDER FENCE
    If 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 would
    stop illegal immigrants from entering this country, then in might be
    worthwhile having a discussion. Most illegals are here because they
    simply over stayed their visa.
    You can’t build this wall across rivers. People wanting to cross the
    border 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 we
    would not build this wall. We have always considered ourselves as an
    example to the rest of the world; I don’t think this is the right kind of
    example.
    The job of building the wall is no small task and the environmental
    effects on animal migration and rivers could be serious. Much of Texas
    border is private ranchland and hundreds of lawsuits have been filled
    in opposition to the Government taking this land.
    The cost to maintain this fence once it is built will cost millions of
    dollars per year, but maybe President Trump can get Mexico to pay for
    this too.
    As long as we have businesses that provide jobs as agriculture
    workers, hotel maids, construction jobs, restaurants jobs, etc. people
    will come into the country. What we really need is immigration reform.
