By: Chase Johnson

Push and Pull

Push- Violence, low jobs, low income, no health benefits.

Pull- Better jobs, better housing, more freedom, good welfare programs.

Ravenstein's laws

Move to urban areas- Most move to Minneapolis or big cities.

Most migrants move only a short distance- Somalia is a whole different country thousands of miles away.

Location and Jobs

Two main places they live is in Minneapolis and Rochester.

They work a lot of speaking jobs and interpreter jobs.

They are moving here with little education so are left behind in are schools or can't qualify for good jobs.

Another challenge for them is they are moving here to get away from violence but when they get here they find out that there is just as much.
