Conservative radio host and frequent Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham this week said that the government would need to "wall of Detroit" if more immigrants were allowed to move there.

Earlier this month, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) told reporters that he had asked the Obama administration to set aside additional visas for immigrants with special skills and advanced degrees in an effort to reverse Detroit's declining population.

The Associated Press reported that if Snyder's plan is approved, "Detroit would be allocated 5,000 visas in the first year, 10,000 each of the next three years and 15,000 in the fifth year." Immigrants would be allowed to live and work in the city for five years, but could apply for a green card after that time.

On her Tuesday radio show, Ingraham said the idea was "the craziest thing I've ever heard of."

"The people of this country, they're smart enough to know that they don't want to go anywhere near Detroit. Right?" she explained. "But we need to get these people from other countries to live and work in Detroit to save us because we can then wall off Detroit, apparently, so they can't then move to other parts of the country."

"Is that what Rick Snyder is gonna do?" Ingraham asked. "Is there gonna be, you know, is there gonna be finally a border enforced in our country? Except it's going to be around Detroit."

Earlier this month, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson came under fire after telling The New Yorker that his plan was to turn Detroit into an "Indian reservation."

"[W]e herd all the Indians into the city, build a fence around it, and then throw in the blankets and the corn," he said.
