ABSTRACT
This article reports that in a flashback to the early 20th century, immigrants from all over the world are settling in the district, and not just in its inner cities. In 1910, the peak year for immigration to Minnesota, 29 percent of the state's population was born outside the country. By 1930 the immigration boom was over, blighted by tightened immigration laws and the Great Depression. Federal immigration policies that discouraged immigration from non-European countries ensured that the Upper Midwest remained almost exclusively the domain of white, native-born Americans.
