“The Impact of Immigration in Minnesota’s Economy”

Co-sponsored by the Stillwater Public Library

Guest speakers are Mr. Michou Kokodoko, Community Development Project Director, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and Dr. Tea Rozman-Clark, Executive Director of Green Card Voices.

Much of today’s political discourse has focused on issues of immigration.  This program will bring to the audience the facts of immigration in Minnesota.  What is the role of immigrants in Minnesota’s economy?  Where do today’s immigrants originate?  Where to they work — as entrepreneurs and employees?  What are the misconceptions about immigrants in Minnesota?  What are the benefits and costs?  What is the human face of Minnesota’s immigrants?
