Daniel Dunlap 4/11/11 Weekly Response This week’s reading, Latinos, Africans and, Asians in the North Star State: Immigrant Communities in Minnesota, by Katherine Fennelly, discusses three demographic characteristics that make Minnesotan interesting case for immigration analysis. The first one is the rapid increase in foreign born populations, which Fennelly correlates to the economic boom of the 1990’s. The second characteristic is the large proportion of refugees that make up the foreign born population. This exists due to Minnesota’s open acceptance of the 1948 Displaced Persons Act, the seven active refugee agencies, and the state’s social beliefs, training programs, and availability of jobs. Lastly, Minnesota has unique geographic concentrations of foreign-born residents due to industrial food processing plants. She then uses to a case study of Faribualt, Minnesota to highlight these demographic characteristics. I live approximately 15 miles north of Faribault, Minnesota, in Northfield, Minnesota.
