Mike Bloomberg Solves Country's Immigration Debate

Our mayor Mike Bloomberg has found the solution for America's immigration issues, as he outlined this morning on "Meet the Press." Let the immigrants come as they may, and simply force them all to live in Detroit! It's a perfect fix for the ongoing disaster zone that is the Motor City. Tell us more, Mike.
"If I were the federal government," Bloomberg told David Gregory on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday morning. "Assuming you could wave a magic wand and pull everybody together, you pass a law letting immigrants come in as long as they agree to go to Detroit and live there for five or ten years."

What do you say, Detroit?

"Detroit is everyone's case study," she [Detroit mayor spokeswoman Karen Dumas] said. "Everybody has an idea or solution for Detroit but it's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking and back-seat driving."

Which is a diplomatic way of saying, "Fuck off, Bloomberg, go manage your own city."

If Detroit has a need for more unemployed people (a real stretch), why not send unemployed Americans there instead of unempoyed immigrants.

It is truly astounding what preposterous proposals the open-borders yeahoos will come to to try to rationalize their immutable policy views.

I guess they are just too deeply entrenched in the 19th century and drunk on the sappy poem by Emma Lazarus.

To Bloomie and those who think like him:  A day will come that you will decide that propping up your absurd immigration superstitions with increasingly bizarre policy prescriptions is more painful than simply recognizing that your views on the issue are based on absurd premises that can only be maintained if you are willing to set yourself up as a village idiot.

By the way, excellent immigration debate on Bloomberg the other day, with the restrictionists resoundingly trouncing the confusedniks.

Bloomberg can't even fulfill his promise of creating jobs for New Yorkers. How can Detroit expand without more business?
