Did someone else provide the link where I quoted this? I can't remember. The city wide unemployment was 11.4% in December.


I'm pretty sure someone posted an article where the 15% for AOCs district was stated, but I'm not going to dig for it.

I googled the shit out of it and couldn't find anything.

U.S. border agents detained nearly 100,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in February, according to two people familiar with preliminary figures, the highest monthly total since a major border surge in mid-2019.

The figures, which have not been previously reported, show the scope of a growing migrant influx at the southwest border as U.S. President Joe Biden, a Democrat, seeks to roll back some of the restrictive policies of former President Donald Trump, a Republican. February was Biden's first full month in office.
Last month's total would represent the highest tally for the month of February since 2006. The sources who provided the figures to Reuters spoke on the condition of anonymity.
An increasing number of children arriving at the border without a parent or legal guardian has forced U.S. officials in recent weeks to scramble for housing options and take steps to speed up their release to sponsors in the United States.
The nearly 100,000 migrants detained at the border in February represent an increase over a figure of 78,000 in January. February's total appears to be the highest monthly number since June 2019 during a large border surge that Trump cited as justification for a broad immigration crackdown.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman said official statistics for last month likely will be released next week.
U.S. Border Patrol agents caught more than 4,500 migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in a single day on Wednesday, according to government figures shared with Reuters, a sign that illegal entries could continue to rise in March.

Hmmm. Sure sounds like Biden et al. are doing a good job securing the southern border. Oddly, all that "wall" talk, so much beautiful "wall" building....sure doesn't sound like the walls are working very well.

Interesting article today: https://www.startribune.com/minneso...-mexico-somalia-india-laos-vietnam/600032203/

In 1990, Laos topped the list of countries where foreign-born Minnesotans originated — with nearly 15,000 residents. The second most common origin country at that time was Canada. Vietnam, Germany and the United Kingdom rounded out the top five.

Today, the largest share of Minnesota's foreign-born population, nearly 58,000 people, came from Mexico. About 40,000 came from Somalia, and another nearly 37,000 residents came from India.

Looking just at recent arrivals, people from Somalia accounted for about 12% of new immigrants in the state over the last decade. Minnesota has the largest concentration of people of Somali ancestry in the United States.

That was followed by Laos, Vietnam, Thailand and Mexico, according to U.S. Census Bureau data analyzed by the Washington, D.C.-based think tank Migration Policy Institute.

"If we look at the United States overall, the top three immigrant origin country countries are India, China and Mexico, and they dominate the flows to the U.S. overall," said Jeanne Batalova, a senior policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute.

"Minnesota is unique in the sense that it is still receives a significant proportion of refugees, as well as family members of refugees who were resettled in Minnesota," Batalova said.

In 1900, when immigrants accounted for about a quarter of the state's population, there were more than 100,000 immigrants from Germany, Sweden and Norway, respectively.

Immigration to Minnesota was largely from European countries for the most of the 20th century, but that changed starting in the 1980s, said Megan Dayton, a senior demographer for the state of Minnesota. In the 1950s, 90% of the state's immigrants came from Europe. That is now reversed.

Good!!

Why should we be paying tax dollars to build facilities to house these people, when they're happy and ready to go live with relatives already here, and then get jobs and pay (sales, at least) taxes?

They don't qualify for and won't receive welfare.

Let em go, until their asylum hearing.

"About 90% of the foreign-born population in Minnesota does not come from Europe," Dayton said. "So we've really increased the number of international immigrants from particularly Asia, Latin America and Africa into Minnesota."
