Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says he welcomes using immigration to repopulate areas of his state and spur economic growth.
Republican Rick Snyder said the state should promote immigration in an interview this week with the Detroit News.
“Encouraging immigration of people with advanced degrees in particular.” Said Snyder.
Last Sunday on “Meet the Press”; New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that Detroit should work to attract immigrants as a way to overcome the city’s severe population loss.
The latest census figures show that Michigan was the only state to lose population over the past 10 years in America.
