New Americans

Yesterday we got an invitation to a conference that says the following:

The bi-state St Louis region is a great place to live, work and build a business.  We have incredible assets, especially our people.  But our region has not grown as fast as other similar communities.  One reason is that, unlike other places, not as many New Americans have moved here.  Growing our immigrant population can raise wages, lower unemployment, increase new business starts, and boost real estate values.

This is something that I said the moment I moved to this area four years ago. (Here is proofHere is more proof.)  There is a desperate need for more immigrants in this area. And finally, somebody else is clocking onto this obvious fact.
