2023 Key Issues: Immigration
Minnesota businesses value the contributions of immigrants to the state.
Minnesota businesses value the contributions of immigrants to the state. Their roles as workers, entrepreneurs, consumer and a link to the world economy are increasingly important to the development and growth of the economy and communities throughout Minnesota. Demographics show that as the population ages and the economy grows, Minnesota will not have the numbers of people available to fill labor needs, and immigrants are a key solution to this challenge.
2023 priorities include:
- Continued advocacy in support of comprehensive federal immigration reform.
- With federal action on immigration, address state-specific laws such as driving privileges.
