Subject: VIDEO – Bill Clinton: Rebuild Detroit with Syrian Refugees

In a previously little-noticedvideo 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.

They'd be better off to settle Latin American refugees. Many of them already have the necessary skills to make the repairs and they'd counter the Muslims that are already there.

They don't have money or a job. How can they rebuild anything? I forgot Obama will give each one a minimum of $2300 a month of tax payer dollars.
