Laura Ingraham is an idiot

Not too long ago, Michigan governor Rick Snyder announced a plan that he hopes will help improve the economy in my place of residence, Detroit. His plan pretty much comes down to asking the feds to grant more VISA's to highly skilled people who want to live and work in the city. By more, I mean that he's looking for 50,000 over the span of 5 years. IF this idea is approved and works how the governor thinks it might, it will make Detroit an attractive place for future immigrants, increase the population of the city by thousands, increase the tax base substantially and may even result in a few extra businesses opening up which means that there will be some jobs available for residents. I personally might not like most of Snyder's policies but I'm smart enough to realize that having more people in this city means that the city gets more revenue to use for things like basic services and (hopefully) improving some of the infrastructure problems. Of course, not everyone is on the "Let's not be idiots when it comes to immigration" bandwagon. One of those people against it is Laura Ingraham, who it should be noted, does not live in the state of Michigan. Following in the footsteps of Oakland County(not in Detroit) executive L. Brooks Patterson, who has built a career out of saying borderline racist things while bashing Detroit in an attempt to keep state dollars flowing in to Oakland County, Ingraham is now suggesting that America build a wall around the city to keep the immigrants and blacks, especially the blacks, from getting out and harassing kindly white people in the real parts of America. Click, listen and be amazed.
