Posted on 01/27/2014 5:58:17 AM PST by Zakeet
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it was not an "exaggeration" to say America would be committing "national suicide" if it does not pass amnesty legislation.
Our current immigration laws are national suicide, Bloomberg said on Friday at an immigration summit in Washington. I dont think thats an exaggeration.

What an idiot. Amnesty IS national suicide.
Mr Nanny needs to go away......
Actually, national suicide is exactly what Bloomberg and his ilk have been enabling for decades with their support of abortion. Another 50+ million people (the number aborted) would have done a lot to fill the need for labor and stimulate the economy. But he preferred to kill them.
Always take whatever a liberal says and flip it to find the truth.
If they say the earth is warming, you can bet were heading into a new ice age.
If they say those who deny global warming are flat earthers, the truth is THEY are the flat earther’s! who are calling the skeptics heretic's with government backing.
If they say not passing amnesty is national suicide.. you can be 100% certain that passing amnesty will be national suicide!
And if we pass amnesty, we will become Mexico.
I think we need to explore other remedies to our low birth rates.
Have you noticed how the left no longer hides their true goals?
They are doing and saying things today that would have prevented them from winning any election in the past. They had to lie to get into power, and now they believe they have won it all. Welcome to the brave new world of socialist utopia.
I guess when you have the MSM covering your back you can say and do anything.
Bloomberg we don’t have jobs.
After we have jobs, then talk about immigration, maybe, but first bring back American jobs.
‘The one thing, all kidding aside, that hasnt changed and wont: Im going to keep pressing Washington to act on the issues that matter most when it comes to keeping America competitive, and America safe, and America strong, and few things matter as much as immigration. I have said repeatedly, our current immigration laws are national suicide and I really dont think thats an exaggeration. Because I see industry after industry, company after company, school after school improving overseas, and if we dont do something, were going to find ourselves someday on the backside of the curve, and its very hard to play catch up in this world. The vast majority of Americans, the good news is, agree that we need hardworking people from around the world to come here. It is crucial for our economic stability, and our ability to create jobs. We all agree that we need stronger borders and better enforcement. But we also agree that turning away foreign-born innovators and entrepreneurs and the best and brightest immigrant students educated here is about the worst economic policy anybody could possibly have. ‘
No shortage of recent immigrants in NYC or Maryland Bloomy, in fact they are Balkan-ized now, that means little resistance to guys like you and O malley..
There is nothing wrong with our immigration laws. The problem is that they are not enforced. Period.
When is this lizard going to crawl back under his rock?
See how that works?
want engineers? make an allowance for them. Whatever positions are lacking. that sort of sanity does not require for amnesty for people plucking chickens or serving fast food.
they have no problem with the idea of jailing or confiscating property from up to 300m people if they don’t pay their 0bamacare bill...
they also have no problem handing out over 150m speeding tickets every year
but propose they evict 5-10m illegals every year and they start screams about how it’s not possible
what a load of bullsh*t. they want to push amnesty so progressives will have a lock on the govt for the next 50+ years
Many people would effectively argue the opposite - open borders, like we have now, are national suicide.
There, fixed Bloomies statement.
H1B is pure evil, that needs to stop NOW.
They will have a job. Not very skilled, but a job that pays quite well.
They'll be professional voters. Skilled at voting for one party. For this labor, earning all kinds of income: EBT, section-8, 0'care, EIC, food stamps, at least 140 flavors of income.
H1B is pure evil, that needs to stop NOW.
All this false urgency to pass “immigration reform”. I would be supportive of immigration reform if it meant that we would enforce current immigration rules, but the immigration reform touted by Bloomberg and others is nothing more than a way for elites to get cheap labor and/or to ensure a loyal voting block. Neither of these goals helps the long term health of this republic.
National Suicide IS SITTING IN THE White House.
I couldn’t have put it any better. No more until our tech employment stabilizes and rebounds if it ever does.
No amnesty for Obama, Holder, Hillary, Sibelius or Napolitano !!!
Our tools of national suicide are sitting in the White House and the Senate, not at the border.
Need for labor? We have 20 million Americans underemployed or unemployed. We have a shortage of jobs, not labor. And who uses abortion the most? Blacks and Hispanics. And which groups have the highest unemployment rates? Blacks and Hispanics. And which groups use the welfare system the most? Blacks and Hispanics. And which groups have the highest birth rates? Blacks and Hispanics.
I don't support abortion, but it would be a mistake to say that these additional 50 million people would be an unalloyed good for the economy or jobs.
Our fertility rate is 2.06 children born/woman (2013 est.), which is just about at replacement level. This places us 121st in the world, but only Israel (2.65) and France (2.08) have higher rates among the developed countries and most of that is due to the Muslim birthrates. New Zealand has the same rate as the US.
The nations total population would cross the 400 million mark in 2051, reaching 420.3 million in 2060. Our current population is 317 million. Below is a breakdown by race and ethnicity (2012 and 2060):
Below are projections by age and sex:
Being forced to hire unemployed Americans will destroy the country?
How about take an exit off the ****ing stage, you has-been tyrannical piece of ****.
Trying to invite? We already bring in 1.2 million permanent legal immigrants a year, most of them poor and uneducated.
Ever notice Communists are very fond of identifying themselves as the "Gang Of ###"?
Right. Just another “law of the land” which this administration willingly ignores.
The racists are the ones seeking to impose SLAVE WAGES for LEGAL IMMIGRANTS and other unskilled minoriy workers.
Amnesty is national suicide and it can save us from suicide. Double edge sword. Our birth rate is below what is needs to be to sustain growth, so more immigrants are needed to offset. Yes, I get that it is suicide, due to the watering down of America. On the good side, I’d be willing to bet that most of the immigrants would be harder working that the 47% that are on the govt assistance. So the govt needs these workers to offset the lazy Americans who won’t work. Very tough situation be this country to be in right now.
Mayor of Bizarro World.
The economy is in desperate shape. Tens of millions of honest LEGAL citizens out of work.
GOP in trouble.
Bring in tens of millions of MORE workers that will vote Democrat.
That works out well for an extreme Leftist/Government Supremacist like Bloomberg, but not so well for the 300 million citizens who will suffer a much lower quality of life if the elite like him turn America into THIRD WORLD COUNTRY.
No that’s ironic because to me Amnesty IS national suicide.
I know where you’re coming from and have to agree. Saudi Arabia is that way.
Before you listen to this nonsense from this goofball, stop to remember all the crazy schemes he came up with just for notoriety in the news.
Prevent national suicide?
Stop aborting babies!
Great graphs. Thanks.
“There is nothing wrong with our immigration laws. The problem is that they are not enforced. Period.
Nothing more to say, you said it all.
At the end of the day there will be more Asians than Hispanics on the path to citizenship. But there will be someone to work for.
