Michigan gov. embraces immigration to boost state

LANSING, May 3, 2011 (AP): Gov. Rick Snyder says he embraces immigration as a way to repopulate Michigan as part of a larger plan to spur economic development.

The Republican governor told The Detroit News in an interview published Tuesday the state should be “encouraging immigration of people with advanced degrees in particular." Snyder earlier has made the case for attracting such legal immigrants.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told NBC's “Meet the Press” Sunday that Detroit should immigrants as a way to overcome the city's severe population loss.

Detroit has seen its population fall from 1.8 million in the 1950 U.S. Census to 714,000 in 2010. Its population dropped 26 percent in the last decade. And census figures show Michigan was the only state in the nation to lose population over the past decade.
