Billionaire Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg wants to flood America with refugees by 694 percent.

Breitbart reported the shocking story Monday, saying the former New York mayor wants to vastly increase the number of refugees taken in from 18,000 each year to 125,000 annually, a 694 percent increase.

This is the billionaire’s scheme to “grow and enrich” the economy, Breitbart reports.

The proposed numbers stand in stark contrast to the 18,000 refugees President Donald Trump’s administration is on track to accept between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020.

Bloomberg tweeted up a storm of statements attacking President Donald Trump on immigration, including this: “Immigration doesn’t threaten America, it strengthens America. America doesn’t need any more of Trump’s fear mongering. What we need is a modern immigration system that honors our history and readies us for the future. Here’s how we’ll #GetItDone”.

The tweet links to Bloomberg’s immigration plank, including the refugee flood and a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants.

Mike’s plan will protect Dreamers and TPS holders and create an earned pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented. Mike will reform Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), implementing sensible immigration enforcement priorities that promote public safety and national security. Mike will also end construction of Trump’s ineffective wall, invest in smart security measures and upgrade our ports of entry to protect the border and increase efficiency.

Mike’s plan will modernize our legal immigration system while protecting and investing in U.S. workers—and will protect all workers, including immigrants, from exploitation and labor violations. Mike will make employment-based immigration more responsive to economic conditions and reduce the backlogs that keep families apart. He will implement policies that attract job-creating innovators and entrepreneurs and create new place-based visas that allow localities to address unmet needs.

While Bloomberg gushes over illegal aliens, he lambasts ICE rank-and-file workers: “Since Trump took office, there have been more than 400 allegations of sexual assault or abuse and at least 29 fatalities in detention facilities overseen by ICE. I’ll investigate abuse at ICE and CBP, restore oversight and accountability, and keep all Americans safe.”

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer sent a letter in December to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo consenting to Michigan’s continued involvement in the Refugee Resettlement Program.
