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.
