Michael Bloomberg: ‘Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Masses Yearning to Breathe Free… and I’ll Lock ‘em in Detroit’

Something tells me that if a politician who actually had a label proposed something like this, he or she would be called anti-immigrant and probably even racist, but Michael Bloomberg often escapes such criticisms because of his concern for the cholesterol level of all of humanity.

New York Daily News:

Mayor Bloomberg has a fix for the nation’s immigration debate: Send ‘em to Detroit.

“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.”

Detroit has suffered a devastating population loss in recent decades, losing 25% of its citizens since the last census.
The immigrants would arrive in Detroit, “start businesses, take jobs whatever,” Bloomberg said. “You would populate Detroit over night because half the world wants to come here … You can use something like immigration policy – at no cost to the federal government – to fix a lot of the problems that we have.”

What would those jobs for immigrants forced to live in Detroit be? A huge government stimulus project where immigrants would work building a wall to keep themselves locked in would have to be the first consideration.

Let’s see, so far the Mayor of New York City has conducted gun stings in Arizona, sent NYC’s homeless to other cities, and now he’s proposing sticking immigrants in Detroit. Rudy Giuliani was called “Mayor of the World” but Bloomberg is the one trying to run with the title.

If Bloomberg’s trying to keep immigrants from wanting to settle in New York City, he should just post this picture on the side of every road leading into the City:
