Bloomberg: ‘Nobody Has Come Across the [U.S.-Mexico] Border in a Long Time'
By Edwin Mora
August 20, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said last week that "nobody" had illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in a "long time."

He also advised that it would be easier for those wishing to illegally immigrate to the United States to simply buy a ticket to fly here and then overstay their visa.

Bloomberg was speaking in Boston at an Aug. 14 forum on immigration sponsored by the New England Council. He shared the stage for the forum with News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch.

Jerry Seib of The Wall Street Journal, who moderated the event, asked Bloomberg, “... My sister lives in Amarillo, Texas, and they’re very worried about waves coming up north over the border there. What are you going to tell them?”

“Number one nobody has come across the border in a long time,” responded the mayor. “I mean we spend a fortune on technology, and if you want to come to America illegally, don’t waste your time going across the border and through the desert. It’s dangerous. Just get on an airplane, fly here, and overstay your visa. We have absolutely no ability to track who you are and get you back.

“The total number of undocumented in this country has been going down for a long time. How do we solve the problem? We solved the problem by having our economy crater,” he continued. “People don’t come here to put their feet up and collect welfare. They come here to work, and if there’s no jobs, they don’t come here, and if they’re here and they can’t find a job, they go back home, because America is not a very good place to sit around and think the state is going to support you.”

However, a report by the Center for Immigration Studies released earlier this month, citing U.S. Census data, showed that 43 percent of immigrants, both legal and illegal, who have been residing in the U.S. for at least 20 years were on welfare.

    He can't REALLY be that stupid.

    He must just think his audience is that stupid.

    And he's probably right; close to half the voting population is going to vote for Obama.
