"We're committing what I call national suicide. Somehow or other, after 9/11 we went from reaching out and trying to get the best and the brightest to come here, to trying to keep them out. In fact, we do the stupidest thing, we give them educations and then don't give them green cards."

- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on NBC's "Meet the Press." Mayor Bloomberg has pledged to promote a more open U.S. immigration policy during his third term.
