Ratcheting up his controversial proposal for revitalizing America’s cities, Mayor Bloomberg yesterday suggested that the federal government “deliberately force” large municipalities to take in immigrants as the only hope for salvaging their battered economies.
Bloomberg spoke at a Midtown forum, timed to the release of a new study titled “Not Coming to America: Why the US is Falling Behind in the Global Race for Talent.”
The article goes on to tell us that Ricardo Salinas, a Mexican multibillionaire, helped fund the "research" behind this study and its brilliant conclusion.
Bloomberg makes the ridiculous accusation that the present regime has outdone the last several administrations in deporting illegals. If only. The 'news media' have been flogging that story for some time now, but I am not buying it; it is just a matter of juggling statistics and twisting verbiage to make it seem as if there are more illegals being sent home.
The quote from Bloomberg -- himself a sterling example of how Ellis Islanders are rarely on our side -- of how the federal government should force some cities or localities to take in immigrants. has drawn some attention, but why? Isn't this already the existing policy of the government? Seems to me as if this idea isn't news at all, because it's just what we see going on every day. So Salinas should have kept his dinero and Bloomberg should have saved his breath. It's already an accomplished fact.
