What makes Minnesota a desirable place for refugees
The flow of migrants and refugees continues from Syria and Iraq through Turkey and into Europe, but some of those refugees will be brought here.
MPR News with Tom Weber hosted a conversation about Minnesota as a destination for refugees.
Minnesota has a long history of being a place where refugees resettle when they come to the US — our Hmong, Lao, Vietnamese, Somali, Liberian and Karen populations to name a few — were born of a people escaping war in their homeland.
Weber asked Jane Graupman the executive director of International Institute of Minnesota how Syrians could reshape Minnesota migration patterns.
