Re-post: Refugees bring poverty to Minnesota

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 1, 2016

There is so much propaganda about how refugees bring economic boom times to communities (and since a reader reminded me about this old post), I am re-posting this information that dispels that myth.

Please use this information as you become active in Election 2016!  If this is the case in Minnesota, it is probably the case where you live too!  Use it in Wyoming and in Montana.

From May 2014:

Not too many words are necessary, the numbers say it all!

When Congress first debated the bill that became the Refugee Act of 1980 (Senators Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden were key sponsors), the debate centered around the admonition that we should not be importing MORE poverty to America.  Doesn’t take a genius to know that we are, but here is a handy graph of poverty rates among the foreign-born for Minnesota.

Be sure to note that 12% of all Minnesotans are below the poverty line.

So much for the idea being peddled everywhere that immigrants bring economic boom times where ever they go!  More like Cloward and Piven.

Highest poverty rates for MN immigrants: 2 in 3 Somali, 1 in 3 Hmong, 1 in 3 Mexican http://pic.twitter.com/6WADnvHarG

By the way, we don’t bring refugees from China, India or Korea (some asylees but not direct resettlement).

New news!  Things continue to be hot in St. Cloud one of the primary resettlement sites for Somalis in Minnesota, go here to the Minneapolis Star Tribune about the latest from this past weekend.

And this! Minnesota needs $$$ to keep next generation of Somali youths from joining ISIS.

So remind me again!  What did we get out of this deal?

    4 Somalis have been sentenced to “life” in the UK for stabbing a London man 15 times, for no reason. He was lucky he survived. We don’t need this kind here.

  3. Interesting to note that Black American poverty rate is not shown. I would guess it is statistically above 12% and perhaps close to Somali etc. Poor is poor and it is likely that refugees in the beggining are in poverty. I understand the Somali issue in MN.
    I do not think the rate is as large in GA although we have a much smaller Soamli population. While there are no Muslims among Bhutanese, we are proud to say that over 250 Bhuatnese families have both homes (mostly communally) as have smaller percentages of other groups and most Bosnians and Meshketian Turks who arrived many years ago are homeowners and are taxpayers and not in poverty yet they are Muslims.

      Don’t miss that high number for Hmong in MN. They have been in the US for probably nearly 20 years and are not black, yet still aren’t making it in any big way.

    Media had a hissy fit when we don’t follow the leftist narrative and get nasty. If they told the truth it would be a day to remember and celebrate.
