Event Description:

With slow population growth and tight labor markets a common theme across many communities, immigration has become as a major policy issue in the Federal Reserve's Ninth District and nationwide. But how does immigration influence regional labor markets—past, present and future—and to what net economic effect? The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis invites you to join us for a half-day conference on immigration and economic conditions in the Ninth District. The conference will include presentations and panel discussions featuring prominent economists and other experts from each Ninth District state whose work shapes knowledge about the region and informs state-level public policy. The event will feature a keynote address from United States Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

Senator Ron Johnson (Wis.) was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010. He is Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and also serves on the Budget, Foreign Relations, and Commerce, Science and Transportation committees.
