CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - United States Senator Bernie Sanders made an appearance in Cedar Rapids Saturday as part of his latest visit to Iowa.

While in Cedar Rapids, the independent senator from Vermont called on Congress to avert a shutdown of the Dept. of Homeland Security next Friday.

If the department's funding lapses on Feb. 27, much of it could be forced to close and 230,000 workers would be sent home.

Throughout his Iowa visit, Sen. Sanders has discussed his twelve-point Economic Agenda for America, income and wealth inequality and challenges facing working Americans.

In all, he will have made stops in Iowa City, Des Moines, Johnston, Cedar Rapids, Tipton and Ames.
