Pat, Thanks for finding the facts for me and on one of the very websites I kept checking. I don't know how I missed it! I, too, am surprised that our area would be chosen, especially as our temps are dipping from 60's to below zero in windchill overnight! We are "Minnesota nice", have the fourth lowest poverty rate in the nation, our educational system is excellent, and we're rated in the top 10 best cities to live. Maybe some of the people moving here are doing their research!

I'm surprised Minneapolis has the largest Hmong population in the US...

I have several Hmong acquaintances and they said the Hmong liked living in the agricultural Central Valley of CA because the weather is mild and they are close to their farming roots... in fact 4 of the top 10 cities are in the Central Valley and the rest are scattered around the Great Lakes states.

Makes one wonder why immigrants settle at certain places...
