It's just the kind of growth the democrat dependent class needs to keep electing communists, re-open the schools that closed due to lack of students, and fill those low-education jobs that allow the workers to collect benefits.
What's going to happen when the parasites outnumber the hosts? If this story doesn't make the productive, hard working taxpayers want to leave the state I don't know what will!

"...unusually strong flow of foreigners."

Unusual? When the Twin Cities has declared itself sanctuary cities, what's unusual about the flow in of illegal immigrants?

The ignorant fools voted for Obama because of the stuff he gives away and the bums of the world flock to Minnesota because of the liberal give-a-way programs like EBT.

Yes, if anyone of average IQ understands what is going on in Minnesota they WOULD chart a course out of Minnesota, ASAP!!!
