NYC mayor's immigration tour makes Chicago stop

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was in Chicago on Tuesday advocating for sweeping immigration reform.

He was joined by former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley in speaking to the Economic Club of Chicago. Mayor Bloomberg said that opening the border can help induce a quick economic turnaround.

"I know of no ways to help our economy as quickly and as cost free as opening our borders to people who will come here to create jobs, create businesses," he said.

Bloomberg is on a national tour touting his immigration ideas, which are based on a non-partisan study by a group of American mayors and business leaders.
