    Bloomberg Plans Big Immigration Push

    Bloomberg Plans Big Immigration Push


    Mayor Michael Bloomberg will launch Thursday a coalition of mayors and business leaders to advocate for an overhaul of the nation's immigration policy, including legalizing undocumented immigrants and more strictly fining businesses that hire illegal workers.

    "Our immigration policy is national suicide," Mr. Bloomberg said at a forum in Midtown Wednesday. "We educate the best and the brightest and then we don't give them a green card—we want people to create jobs but we won't let entrepreneurs from around the world come here."

    .During his latest inaugural address, Mr. Bloomberg vowed to push to rework the nation's immigration laws in the same way that he waged battle against illegal guns. This effort will be a cornerstone of the mayor's third-term agenda, aides said.

    The coalition, the Partnership for a New American Economy, supports developing a secure system for employers to verify employment eligibility and strict penalties for businesses that fail to comply. The group wants to increase opportunities for immigrants to enter the workforce and for foreign students to stay in the country.

    The group will advocate for securing the nation's borders and beefing up enforcement to prevent illegal immigration. The coalition supports establishing a legal path for the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the country now.

    To effect decision-making in Washington, the group will issue research reports on the economic impact of immigration, poll public opinion, sponsor forums and potentially launch a media campaign. Mr. Bloomberg, a multibillionaire, is expected to provide financial support for the group's activities, as he has with his gun group.

    One City Hall official said the coalition will try to focus on immigration as a "dollar and cent issue," advocating that open borders help keep the U.S. more competitive.

    President Obama has pledged to champion changes to federal immigration policy, but this spring said lawmakers "may not have an appetite" for a grueling debate on immigration this year.

    In addition to Mr. Bloomberg, the co-chairs include Mayor Phil Gordon of Phoenix; Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles; Mayor Michael Nutter of Philadelphia; Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio; Mark Hurd, CEO of Hewlett-Packard; Robert Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Co.; J.W. Marriott Jr., CEO of Marriott International; Jim McNerney Jr., CEO of Boeing; and Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corp., which owns The Wall Street Journal. ... 69010.html

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Listen Bloomberg

    Forget it Bloomberg. You want Amnesty And increased immigration numbers, which equates to Open Borders.

    Listen Bloomberg. Open borders and amnesty and an INCREASE in immigration are all completely unacceptable.

    We were promised NO MORE amnesties and we are holding our Government to that promise. We are also DEMANDING an immigration policy that favors American citizens first and foremost.

    If you cant secure our borders, enforce our immigration laws, and come up with immigration policy that favors American citizens in a near jobless nation than you and the rest of your elitist cronies on either side of the aisle had better GET OUT OF OUR WAY...

    I noticed that Bloomberg doesn't draw a distinction between a millionaire who wants to immigrate to the U. S. lawfully and a third world savage who comes illegally and just wants to rip off U. S. citizens. How come?
