    Bill Clinton: Rebuild Detroit with Syrian Refugees

    Back of the bus for Americans in Detroit, eh Bill.


    In a previously little-noticed video from February at the Clinton Global Initiative, former President Bill Clinton suggested that the U.S. use Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit.

    “The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,” Bill Clinton said about the Syrian migrant crisis.

    Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the mayor’s trying to do an innovative sort of urban homesteading program there. But it just gives you an example of what could be done. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it’s a pretty good deal.

    It is unclear from the video why Clinton seems to think it would be better to fill these Detroit jobs with imported foreign migrants rather than unemployed Americans already living there, who could perhaps benefit from good-paying jobs.

    In the video, Clinton discusses the migrant crisis with billionaire and mass migration enthusiast Hamdi Ulukaya of the Chobani yogurt empire.

    Ulukaya has become a figure of controversy for his decision to fill his yogurt plants with foreign refugees rather than unemployed Americans. At the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this year, Ulukaya encouraged other global elites to follow his lead.

    The unearthed video seems to underscore Donald Trump’s recent declaration that, “Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit who have become refugees in their own country.”

    Hillary Clinton has called for a 550 percent expansion to the importation of Syrian refugees. Based on the minimum figures she has put forth thus far, a President Hillary Clinton could potentially import a population of refugees (620,000) that nearly equals the population of Detroit (677,116).

    It is not bad idea, syrians would probably make it more succesful city than the current population living there and they not afraid of gangs in detroit unlike white americans.

    Mr. Excalibur,

    I don't know. I can see those Syrians getting off the bus, then asking if they can go back to Homs.

    Nice, you want them to back home where their family members are being killed every day.

    Thank goodness most people don't share your un-american views.

    We had an area in East Dayton, the Southerners moved out of old pre WW2 houses. Refugees moved in, redid the houses,fixed them all up. It is now a thriving neighborhood.

    Detroit is already rebuilding with private enterprise. That would be a great idea.

    You guys need to do some rethinking.

    The last time I checked, no one in Detroit was dropping barrel bombs of poisonous gas or hitting whole blocks of buildings with drone strikes...
