Immigration and the Economy

Latest U.S. Census figures underscore the growing immigration population in our state. Join the Minnesota Chamber as speakers address how these changing demographics will affect our workforce pool and our state's economy. The session also will address re-framing the mainstream debate that often reflects negatively on immigrants and those employers that hire immigrants. Participants also will receive an update on state and federal legislation with respect to immigration policies. We invite business owners and their representatives to attend.
