You won't live with the immigrants, but your willing to be one?

Bloomberg suggested in May during an appearance on NBC-TV's "Meet the Press" that letting anyone immigrate to the United States "as long as they agreed to go to Detroit and live there for five or ten years" could help the city regain population and new businesses.

That should kill any hopes of it ever happening.

Legal immigration is fine by me.

The why not comes in when there aren't enough jobs for the people who are here already and when we are already spending far too much on entitlement programs for those who don't have or wont get jobs.

How about bringing everyone home from Iraq and Afghanistan and let them fight it out for themselves?

I don't think they can pull the wool over that many peoples eyes. even immigrants check out the web to see what has the best options for them & their families. They would have to give away free houses for a program to get people to move there with a five year tenant garrenty. that way even though its free they pay taxes and utilitys for the period. if they fix it up and sell it afterward then fine by me.

x2 on that. when the jobs to working people ratio is 1:1 i'd have no problem letting people come in legally. but the jobs to people ratio is something like 1:10 and that is going to take forever to fix.

I'm sure a number of immigrants would take one of the run down ghetto houses any day compared to thier huts in mexico.

Also, no just to yetti, when we say "there are no jobs" that mostly means jobs that we don't want to do or think they won't help us anymore. There ARE jobs out there that are completely fine for someone who is used to living sub $1000 a year.

Either way, I'm sure the liberal teacher nut jobs will have a field day with this. Skew some stats and misquote him and they'll have him recalled quicker then they thought.

I think this is pretty funny.

average education of the unemployed in michigan, less than an associates degree.

average education of a legal immigrant in michigan who is seeking some sort of sponsorship or legal working visa, or citizenship. Master's Degree from one of our universities.

Maybe if americans were not so lazy, and actually went and got educated they would have jobs, or maybe, if americans were not so lazy and got educated and made the job market more competitive in their favor the immigrants wouldn't come here?

I support snyder on this, as long as they come here legally, I will never complain.

I do not know all of the specifics of how their schooling is being paid for, but if you can point me in the direction of some legitimate reading that proves your statement correct I will amend my opinion.

I do know that MANY of the foreign students apply for and recieve a lot of research grants through our government because that is the environment that education fosters overseas and they are very successful in getting money for schooling that way, but they also put in the work once they recieve that grant money, something I don't see as many american born students doing.

Now, if that money is ONLY available to foreigners I have a problem with that, but nothing I have read suggests otherwise, most of what I have read and understood is that americans who do get their masters don't do the extensive research and studying that they get the grants for. At least I am not hearing about it or seeing it on resumes either.
