legal immigrants, I presume? good maybe they can come up with plenty of jobs for those on unemployment benefits since the dictator is responsible for companies and small businesses closing shop. THEY CAN PROBABLY OUT DO the insensitive and LIFELESS dictator.

Wow, what about US citizens with advanced degrees in Michigan? I'm sure if give Snyder would them a grant they'd put forth their best effort. But then that would be too much like doing the right thing for the citizenry!

“If they’re bringing in capital and skills, I would have to assume that they are going to provide jobs.” Owens said.

Never assume, you'll just make and ass out of you and me

“I think the concept is a sound one on one condition … they don’t get some kind of advantage that would crowd out folks that are already here or give them an advantage over a potential competitor that is over here. That, we would be a little sensitive to,” he added.

A "little" sensitive is all. And listen up bonehead, Snyder plans to issue an executive order so that the Michigan Office for New Americans can attract immigrants who have advanced degrees or who hope to start their own businesses. How's that not an giving an advantage to immigrants.

The whole world is full of and was built by immigrants -- not just the US. Adam and Eve are the only ones that aren't immigrants.
