Huisman’s Research Cited in Morning Sentinel Article on Immigrants Moving to Maine

A Morning Sentinel article on immigrants relocating to Maine and a recent influx of Iraqi families moving to Augusta cited research by Kim Huisman, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Maine. According to a 2009 study by Huisman, 95 percent of the Somali population in Maine can be classified as secondary immigrants, or refugees who come to Maine after initially settling in other parts of the country.
