The Impact of Illegal Imigration on Minnesota

Report to Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty

Minnesota’s illegal immigrant population is increasing. According to recent estimates, there are 80,000 to 85,000 illegal immigrants in Minnesota. The number of illegal immigrants skyrocketed throughout the 1990s and continues to increase. Minnesota’s illegal immigrant population is greater than at least 20 other states.

This population poses a substantial challenge to Minnesota. The illegal immigration challenge includes: (1) a financial strain on state resources, and (2) societal impacts, such as crime and economic loss.

In Minnesota, illegal immigration has the greatest cost impact on the K-12 education system, where over 14,000 children of illegal immigrants are educated. In addition, despite the Minnesota legislature’s reforms in 2003 that significantly limited the benefits for illegal immigrants, they continue to utilize publicly-provided social services.

Another fiscal consideration is the costs associated with crimes illegal immigrants commit. The costs resulting from apprehension, prosecution and incarceration are considerable. In addition, there are other costs to society associated with these criminal acts. ~Snip~
