Midwest needs more immigrants
A new study revealed that the Midwest needs more immigrants to boost the economic needs of metro regions where the number of local citizens is fading and diminishing.

According to a report from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, from 2000-2010 the number of locals in the Midwest rose by 3.3 % in Midwestern metro regions whereas the number of immigrants grew by 38.4% mostly in their major working and taxpaying years.

Additionally, during the period from 2000 to 2010, Duluth observed that its population grew by 929 persons where all of them are immigrants. Minneapolis observed that immigrants attribute for 35.2 % of the growth in its population. In Rochester 20.3% was accredited to immigration whereas in Fargo 1,022 immigrants have balanced the departure of 1,230 local residents.

The study included foreign nationals of various countries including legal permanent residents, naturalized citizens, temporary visitors and undocumented immigrants with intentions to study or work. The report alarms the necessity for boosting immigration and encouraging foreigners to fill high and low skilled jobs in vacant positions. It proposes certain things like easing procedure to secure financing for mortgages to ensure that immigrants can also work as active consumers. It also recommends that immigrants should be allowed to participate in some civic duties. Thus, the report says that immigration will be very helpful for any region that is observing population slowdown to boost and maintain the economic strength of metro areas.
