Mike Bloomberg Solves Country's Immigration Debate
Our mayor Mike Bloomberg has found the solution for America's immigration issues, as he outlined this morning on "Meet the Press." Let the immigrants come as they may, and simply force them all to live in Detroit! It's a perfect fix for the ongoing disaster zone that is the Motor City. Tell us more, Mike.
"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."
What do you say, Detroit?
"Detroit is everyone's case study," she [Detroit mayor spokeswoman Karen Dumas] said. "Everybody has an idea or solution for Detroit but it's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking and back-seat driving."
Which is a diplomatic way of saying, "Fuck off, Bloomberg, go manage your own city."
