That is the question asked by CBS Minnesota in Minneapolis this week. First, there are a bunch of volags (silly name, voluntary agencies) paid by the federal government to resettle refugees. If you have a bunch of those in your town (or one aggressive one), you will have a larger number of refugees. And, the second reason is that the welfare benefits in Minnesota are so good.

Gangs of Somalis have been mugging area bicyclists for years and the trail that follows the light rail. Residents of Minneapolis will also likely remember the youtube video posted by young Somali gangsters a year or two back showing them assaulting random pedestrians and bicyclists with no apparent motive other than laughs.

In addition to the violence, there seems to be other major “quality of life” issue with the Somali population. For example, rampant littering, uninsured driving, treatment of Somali women as chattel and sex slaves by the men, welfare fraud. Even little actions show great disrespect: II can say honestly that every person I have seen but into a line in the last few years has been a young Somali.

I hate Brooklyn park it's so trashy and gang ridden. I have met some pretty nice Somalians in my time though they are Arab origin though so that may make a difference.

Why are so many crackers in Minneapolis and go unto move to the burbs than come Baker to gentrify. They have the same right to freedom and happiness just as we do. Just remember your ancestors were in the same position.
