Mash here:

Is Detroit destined to become a Chinese city? Chinese homebuyers and Chinese businesses are starting to flood into the Motor City, and the governor of Michigan is greatly encouraging this. In fact, he has formally asked the Obama administration for 50,000 special federal immigration visas to encourage even more immigration from China and elsewhere. So will Detroit be the first major city in the United States to be dominated by China? It could happen. Once upon a time, Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city in the history of the world and it had the highest per capita income in the entire country. But now it is a rotting, decaying, bankrupt hellhole that is in desperate need of a savior, and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder appears to be fully convinced that China can be that savior.

To Snyder, encouraging foreigners to invest money and buy up properties won't cost the state government much, but it could potentially have great benefits...

Under a plan to be unveiled Thursday, Gov. Rick Snyder will request 50,000 special federal immigration visas over the next five years to attract foreign professionals who are willing to work and live in the city.

Mr. Snyder, in an interview Wednesday, said that “this is one way for the federal government to step up to provide significant value without cost that could have a huge impact on the city’s future.”

At a news conference announcing his plan, Snyder was not shy about declaring his intentions...

"Let's send a message to the entire world: Detroit, Michigan, is open to the world."

In other words, Snyder wants China to save Detroit since nobody in this country is going to.

Snyder has also taken a couple of additional steps to encourage immigration and foreign investment, including opening up something called "an Office for New Americans"...

Opening an Office for New Americans to attract and help immigrants better adjust to life in Michigan, and designating the state as an Employer Based or EB-5 center to expedite visas and permits for immigrants who want to open business in the state with investments of at least $500,000 and 10 employees.

In essence, Snyder has done just about everything except roll out the welcome mat for the Chinese.

But this is nothing new for Governor Snyder. In fact, he has been making overtures to China for years...

Snyder, who was a businessman before starting his political career, believes that automobiles can no longer change the fate of Detroit. He said that he has learned from the history of the United States that what has made the nation great is immigrants.

In the early 1990s, Snyder went to China to develop the automobile market. After he was elected as the governor of Michigan, he made at least one trip to China every year, with the aim of recruiting talent.

He hopes that well-educated Chinese people can revitalize the Motor City in the new era. And as he desired, after Detroit announced its bankruptcy in 2013, the Chinese began to take the dying city by storm.

Rich Chinese men see Detroit as a rare opportunity for investment outside their home country.

In 2013, without any field investigation, Dongdu International Group of Shanghai — whose assets total 5 billion yuan (US$800 million) — spent US$13.6 million to buy the David Stott building and the Detroit Free Press building at auctions in September.

And when we talk about the Chinese domination of Detroit, this is not something that is just future tense. This is something that is already happening right now. For example, the following is an excerpt from a CNBC article that discussed how Chinese companies are already aggressively "putting down roots in Detroit"…

Dozens of companies from China are putting down roots in Detroit, part of the country’s steady push into the American auto industry.

Chinese-owned companies are investing in American businesses and new vehicle technology, selling everything from seat belts to shock absorbers in retail stores, and hiring experienced engineers and designers in an effort to soak up the talent and expertise of domestic automakers and their suppliers.



The transformation that has taken place in that region of the country is absolutely remarkable.

48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in the state of Michigan were lost between December 2000 and December 2010. Our trade deficit with China was largely responsible for that.


Read more at the link. It is a shame how the Liberals have ruined this country. Hang on, it is going to get much, much worse.

$17,514,655,000,000 dollars in debt with 100 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities. We are sooooo screwed.

Well, with Dearborn being known as New Fallujah, I'd say Michigan will one day become a target rich environment.

It's not the worst plan ever. It will be bringing jobs back to America.

Sure, I would have preferred America stay American, but did everyone expect there would be no price to be paid for all this socialism and borrowing, dumbing down of our education and voting for the president with the best prizes inside like we were buying a breakfast cereal ?

Forget this idiot's "America was built on immigration" crap. Those who say that crap never mention this part.

Now, if we can just weed out these tyrannical leeches from the IRS, EPA and FTC, we could attract MORE foreign investors and business.

I like the idea of more industry coming TO the US than leaving.

I'd much rather have smart, business minded investors taking over a city than the illegals, welfare looters and thugs.

IMO

Detroit, and every other lieberal-destroyed hellhole, does not need a "savior." They need good leadership and a populace motivated to produce something of value for once.

Rather than let more people into this country, how about cutting the apron strings for the millions living off of the public dole and require them to actually WORK and EARN their way in life. No work, no food, no house.

Because the American "Poor" are not really poor. The only difference between our "Poor" and the English Royal family is the size of the checks and the size of the family.

NO WAY they are going to vote to stop the gravy train. They don't care what it did to Detroit, California or every other major Blue city. "Free stuff" is their "birth right" and the history of Democrat racism and even current examples of Democrat racism is irrelevant as long they they keep the checks coming.

Heck, the city is selling abandoned homes for $1000 each in online auctions.
Of course China will capitalize, doesn't surprise me.

Lol, Detroit. Be proud dems......
