LANSING — Harking back to his first State of the State address, Gov. Rick Snyder will propose measures in his latest address on Thursday to help attract and retain more immigrants with advanced degrees — and spur job growth — he said Tuesday.

Snyder, in an interview with the Free Press at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, gave few details, but said the need for more immigrants will be a featured topic.

Snyder said such immigrants create jobs in Michigan, they don’t take them away.
