Venga a Michigan: State of Michigan Urges Illegal Aliens to Come on Over

Governors, like California’s Arnold Schwarzenegger, who won’t get tough on illegal aliens are bad enough.
But then there are governors like Michigan’s Jennifer Granholm a/k/a “The Governatrix Gran-HO” (along with Schwarzenegger, she’s the nation’s other Dating Game contestant governor). She’s welcoming illegal aliens and urging them to come to Michigan.
No lie.

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm

& Extremist Muslim Imam Hassan Qazwini

State officials are trying to lure more migrant farm workers to Michigan to avoid labor shortages, which they say hurt the last harvest by the state’s agriculture industry. To address the “problem,” the State of Michigan is spending tax money on a marketing pitch: “Venga a Michigan” (Spanish for “Come to Michigan”).
And State of Michigan officials visited Texas, last week, to invite unemployed Hispanic illegal aliens there to come here to Michigan to find work.
And by the way, the State of Michigan consulted with illegal alien interest groups on how to best market Michigan’s state-funded “social services”:

The goal was “to promote Michigan agriculture and the various services available,” Rick Olivarez, a state monitor advocate, said during a meeting this week of the Michigan Interagency Migrant Services Committee.

At the same time, The Governatrix Gran-HO is proposing a 2% service tax to pay for state services. Since we don’t pay enough to pay for illegal aliens using these services, she’s spending our money to invite more.
Strangely, none of this was in the two major Detroit papers. I had to read about it in a tiny, micro-print blurb on the back pages of USA Today.

Do you expect any less from a woman who paraded herself off as an “immigrant”??
Maybe if she had been born here her parents would have gotten rid of that hideous mole on her face.

Michigan..A HO ‘nother Country!

Nothing wrong with this dizzy bitch (Grenholm) that wouldn’t be cured by a good hit on the head with a hammer.
Probably looking for more cheap labor for the crappy Detroit auto makers.

And how much more will Granholm want to raise taxes to pay for bilingual programs, free lunches, and free breakfasts for the new illegals? Great move Jennifer.

I do not understand where you got the idea that she was trying to entice ILLEGAL immigrants. The article says she’s trying to lure the migrant farm works – the ones who pick our crops every year.
It’s not like anyone in Michigan is going to be able to entice the laid off auto workers to pick cherries and apples!

We just got OUR spanish signs in Mississippi; in fact, they’re posted all the way from Texas to Georgia on US84 and say “El Camino”(“The Way”), “East-West Corridor”, and have an outline of all 5 states from TX to GA. I’d like to know, “East-West Corridor” for what? If I didn’t know better, I’d think the government wants Mexico to invade us.

Rather than the global idiocy of Michigan’s governor, Israel is taking note of the right way of doing things. Michigan should do the same. Keep out the illegal invaders and Muslims and get local people back to work and off welfare.
“Israel to Fight Unemployment by Reducing Foreign Labor
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) Israel’s National Employment Service reported Thursday that the number of foreign workers in Israel matches the number of Israelis who are unemployed.
The Employment Service director, Esther Dominissini, told the Knesset committee examining the issue that there are 200,000 Israelis registered as unemployed who are able to replace the 85,000 foreign workers legally working in Israel.” …the rest at link.
Bill Bonner of The Daily Reckoning reported about the people in Motown. These people need work.
“…And poor Motown…U.S. automakers are taking record
losses. They no longer dominate neither the world…nor
even the U.S. auto market. And the city they once made
famous they now make miserable.
“Near where Piquette Avenue meets John R Street,”
reports the London Telegraph, “there is still a plaque
paying tribute to the former Model T factory that once
pumped out more than 1,000 vehicles a day…[now] empty
runs and grass growing through the cracks in the
pavement add a post-Apocalyptic grimness to this once
bustling area upon which the American Century
was made…
Now the city that gave the world tail fins has lost
more than half its population…and the half that is
left is not the best half. More than 15% of residents
are unemployed…and half are functionally illiterate,
according to the National Institute of Literacy.”

Way to go Granny! The economy is bleeding out and you want to bring in more welfare cases. “In five years, you’ll be blown away”
Indeed I am.

I’m glad I live in the U.P. but I even saw a whole family of mexicans speaking spanish the other day.

ECW on February 17, 2007 at 11:52 am

The family speaking Spanish may have been tourists. If so, it shows how intelligent they were choosing the UP to visit!

You are all crazy haters. And calling Hassan Al-Qazwini an extremest is just plain ignorant. Get an education before you get an opinion.
