To the editor:

Recently, my office has been contacted by dozens of constituents of the Fergus Falls/Otter Tail County area that are deeply concerned over the topic of Fergus Falls becoming a “Sanctuary City.” I share their concern that this policy would be going in the wrong direction.

At the request of my constituents to get to the bottom of these rumors, I contacted the Fergus Falls Mayor Ben Schierer, and he assured me in both written and verbal communications that he will not support this policy becoming implemented in Fergus Falls. I want to thank the mayor for having this commonsense attitude towards this radical policy.

Please know that I will do everything in my power from stopping Gov. Walz and his push to make Minnesota a Sanctuary State. I can always be reached at my office for legislative issues at 651-297-8063 or Sen.Bill.Ingebrigtsen@senate.mn.
