Bloomberg: Make Immigrants Live in Detroit, If They 'Survive 7 Years' Make Them Citizens By Melanie Hunter August 20, 2012
Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York (AP Photo) (CNSNews.com) - Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York said last week that the federal government should assign immigrants to live in cities such as Detroit and if they survive seven years" make them citizens.
All the federal governments got to do is say, Were gonna welcome here in this country--first come, first served--families, if theyre willing to come here under the following terms,: Bloomberg said in Boston on Aug. 14. "Were going to assign you a city--lets say Detroit--you got to agree to not be arrested and not take any federal, state or city money, and youve got to live there for seven years, and if you survive seven years, well make you and your family full citizens."
Bloomberg was speaking along with News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch at a forum sponsored by the New England Council.
Bloomberg predicted if the federal government assigned immigrants to cities such as Detroit they would buy and fix up houses that are derelict, improve the local schools, create businesses and stimulate the local economy.
Since they value education, theyd make a big fuss and demand the schools get better," Bloomberg said. "Immigrants have a very low crime rate, so that you certainly dont have to worry about that. Theyd create businesses. If they had to drive to California every morning for three jobs and drive back at night, theyd do it, anything."

if they survive...it’ll be Dearbornistan.
By that logic, 5 years in Chicago should get you citizenship.
What’s this - Bloomberg’s “Hunger Games” spin-off?
bump to the top !
Where are the calls for this pathetic SOB to step down?
Just the other day I read a story that calls the safety of NYC into question.
5 years hell, 2 and a half in Chicago would equal a Detroit decade. The freedom to be armed makes Detroit a far safer place.
Immigrants couldn’t be as bad as the feral beasts that currently inhabit Detroit.
The guy is a complete sickie.
Sounds good to me. Of course with the corruption in Detroit (etc.) they could break the law, not pay taxes, not fix up the house(s), simply be a blight on society and nobody would say a thing. Come to think of it, that describes Detroit. So this probably is not a good tactic.
“If they had to drive to California every morning for three jobs and drive back at night, theyd do it, anything.”
And that, my FRiends, is the proverbial horse leaving the barn.
Bloomberg tripped up and told the truth. The current urban dwellers are, how shall we say, lazy?
I was expecting to see the comment attributed to Biden...what a surprise...The little tyrant from New York City uttered that one.... Wonders never cease.
Wasn’t this a Mel Brooks movie?
I’m in Detroit this very second for another hour.
Unless you are next to tigers stadium, you might as well be in Bogata.
I’m not kidding! It is EXACTLY as portrayed! I’m am thrilled to be going home.
Bloombug thinks this is funny. It’s no laughing matter jackass.
Kurt Russell as Snake Plissen in Escape From Detroit!
You can carry in Detroit. Bloomberg is trying to keep New Yorkers unarmed.
...by the way, which party runs these cities?
they can all get jobs shoeing horses and making buggy whips
“Immigrants have a very low crime rate,
No Mayor A-Hole, LEGAL immigrants have a low crime rate.
No kidding, where are the calls for him to step down?
At least Mayor Bing in Detroit isn’t running around telling people what to eat and drink while writing tickets for smoking. In fact, he’s been far less friendly to Obama than Bloomy has been.
I’m no fan of any cities. As far as I’m concerned, nearly all are no different than Detroit. However Detroit gets a far worse rap than it deserves. Sure they have debt and serious problems but they aren’t continuing to write checks at the rate many cities are. Cut off the gravy train to a place like Chicago and they’ll be smelling the smoke from Chicago all the way to Detroit inside of a month.
It was Escape from New York.
Aside from the complete abject stupidity of Bloomberg’s statement, the logistics of keeping illegals sequestered to a particular city would require high security like fences, guard towers, and check points. In effect, Bloomberg is proposing that we turn a burned out husk of a city into a really big concentration camp.
When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away...
Immigrants alien to our culture and more expensive to assimilate, from southern parts of the world, can stay in New Yuk. After the remainder of the default/correction process, New Yuk will be worse than Detroit. A country cannot continue with leadership in business, politics and academia by politically favored, anti-American, sociopath-administered NGOs.
Does this guy ever have a thought that isn’t totalitarian?
Is this one of those semi-unserious, semi-unfunny "satirical" pieces?
I know, I know. And Mel Brooks didn’t direct. But wouldn’t Escape From Detroit be a great idea for an Escape movie? Better than that stupid new sci fi, “Escape”. Besides who doesn’t love Kurt Russell in an eyepatch?
This reminds me of something our wonderful government is doing for refugees (African muslims). They are sending them to Boise, ID because “there aren’t enough slums” here. GAH!!!
