Thanks for the perspective from California, but don't have much of a handle on the city of Detroit's situation. Do you think the people left Michigan?? They just left Detroit and filled the surrounding suburbs. If you included the area surrounding Detroit the population would rival some of the biggest cities in the US. People didn't leave the area, they just left Detroit. The city is coming back in the downtown area but most of suburbs are pretty bad still. They do not need more people to stress the system even more. They need to correct the corruption and mismanagement that has been going on for years. Throwing more people in the mix isn't going to fix that. BTW, that's cute with the "several Muslim families" comment. I guess you missed Dearborn being the largest population of Muslims outside of the middle east??
