    I'm surprised he didn't want them to go to New York for slave labor.

    If these "immigrants" are so great that they can turn around the economy of Detroit, why not send them back to their own countries where they really need the help?

    I'm an immigrant living in the Detroit area. My country seems to be doing OK without me, but thanks for your concern.

    Can we just merge all of Tank's threads into one big 'TANK RAILS ABOUT EVIL MINORITIES ' thread and throw it in the romper room?

    Actually it's not such a bad idea.

    Needs some (read many) details filled in, of course.

    These people would be URBAN PIONEERS.

    You want to buy land in the land of opportunity?

    Great! buy Detroit.

    You'd be doing well by doing good.

    I think we might consider offering petitioners who otherwise cannot get their green cards such an opportunity.

    Just as we have enterprize zones that are really welfare for corporations?

    We create immingrant zones where truly ambitious immigrants can come and buy into the nation while at the same time bringing enough capital to invest in areas where investments capital is in short supply.

    REads like a win/win opportunity to me.

    Really? A win-win? Get hundreds of thousands of people who speak little English, have no job and have little in terms of cash assets to move into a decaying city with historical race relations issues in an area of above average unemployment. If the intention is to create an underclass living in ghettoes, a Potter's Field rather than a Bailey Park, then it would indeed be a win-win.
