Bloomberg Calls for Banishing Immigrants to Detroit

This could be the closest thing to a good idea NYC’s Mayor for Life has had yet:

Detroit needs residents. Immigrants want to live in America.

Michael Bloomberg says he’s got a simple solution for both needs — send all new immigrants to Detroit.

In a novel approach to immigration reform, the New York City mayor said Sunday that if he could have his way, he’d use the immigrant workforce to jump-start the Motor City’s economy by requiring Detroit residency.

“The population has left. You’ve got to do something about that,” Bloomberg said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And if I were the federal government, assuming you could wave a magic wand and pull everybody together, you pass a law letting immigrants come in as long as they agreed to go to Detroit and live there for five or 10 years. Start businesses, take jobs, whatever.”

This would have the beneficial effect of limiting immigration to those who truly love America, because who else would be willing to endure 5 years of Detroit to get citizenship? On the down side, a highly secure fence would have to be built around the city to prevent the immigrants from escaping the way native Detroiters have done. How dumping millions more welfare dependents on a city that high-tax, pro-union Democrats have reduced to a wasteland would “jump-start” the dead economy is not explained.
