Bloomberg Wants Election Debate on Immigration

At least it's not about stupid Nanny State crap.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg sought Tuesday to ignite debate over immigration among the presidential contenders, saying there was no faster or cheaper way to fix the nation's economic problems than by abandoning "self-defeating" immigration policies.

In an editorial published Tuesday and at an appearance before business leaders in Chicago, Bloomberg laid out some of his ideas, saying immigrants and the businesses they create are engines for America's economic recovery.

He spoke alongside William Daley, President Barack Obama's former chief of staff. He planned to address a similar forum in Boston later with conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
