Should Toledo Take In Some Immigrants?

No votes yet

I think the issue should at least be discussed. We have enough room to take at least our fair share of them. For those old enough to work, area employers could provide jobs. And, area unions can set aside some apprenticeships for skilled trades work. Lastly, the City can ante up some entry level jobs. Another plus, is Toledo doesn't need an immigration bill to act. What do you folks think? I hope Toledo leads from the front on this one, and not sit back and let some other city do it for us.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

On a plaque on that big statue thingy on the island in the harbor off New York City, that's where my fucking citation is.

So we're in agreement then? Toledo should take the lead, I think and welcome the wretched rubbish here!
