First--LL cannot kick anyone out--only a court can. LL must go to court with legitimate gounds in order to evict.

Second--LL is likely violating state laws with unannounced and no notice entry. Write him a letter demanding proper notice IAW MN law (in most states its 24 hours except for an emergency (smoke detector, flooding, sewage etc). Send the letter certified mail, RRR. If LL continues you may be able to hold him in violation of yoru right to privacy and sue for damages, moving costs, maybe attorney fees and maybe break the lease agreement too. Use Google to locate MN residential landlord tenant statute and find the section that relates to LL entry and proper notice in MN.
