One would not know it given today's political rhetoric, but up until 2015, the Democratic party's views and positions on illegal immigration and undocumented workers were basically the same as those being espoused by President Donald Trump. It was universally recognized that having a pool of cheap labor ready, available and in direct competition with both American born and legal immigrant workers posed problems that would negatively affect American workers — especially unskilled laborers.

When it comes to politics, change is a driving force, but then reality hits and people need to lead and govern. Minnesota legislators have a month to get their work done. How the final product will end is a mystery, but lots of compromising looks to be in order to avoid a special session. The dynamics appear similar to 2011 when Republicans controlled both Houses, while Gov. Mark Dayton held the line for the DFLers. It resulted in a brutal government shutdown which lasted for many weeks. Is this the path Speaker Kurt Daudt and his colleagues want to travel again?
