Last week during a speech at CUNY Graduate Center, New York City Mayor Bloomberg said that New York needs more immigrants.
“Immigrants are why New York City became America’s economic engine. In these tough times our city needs more immigrants, not fewer.”In his bid for re-election Bloomberg outlined four priorities that he would implement in the next four years. According to the Epoch Times, the plan will maximize economic contributions of immigrants, help immigrant children achieve, integrate immigrants into neighborhoods and civic life, and protect immigrants from exploitation.
