Woohoo! You mean there's a benefit of cheaper housing by deporting illegal aliens?

Bonus!

Gary Anderson says

So, if illegals are not here to build the houses, a shortage will drive the prices UP.

Americans will build houses

Up to 2.1 Million Hispanics May Have Voted Illegally

Duh. Anyone who believes that illegal voting isn't happening, must be a Democrat.

First time poster, I think you've hit the nail on the head. Why are we as a nation so concerned about Trans bathrooms while half the college educated kids these days can't get jobs or are under employed? I'm not a bigot and think people should be treated equally, raised in a die hard blue family, but its so ridiculous the amount of focus put on this tiny minority that has had a VERY MINOR injustice against them (let's get serious, it's a bathroom, this isn't the holocaust...).

Yet this stupid issue gets more and more coverage on ALL media than the plight of the working class, which now has to send kids to $800+/mo daycare so that mom and dad can both go work 40-50 hrs/ week EACH just to afford a decent home in a safe area with good schools.

If trump creates one job for every illegal deported - the property market will GO UP.

Its time we started running this place like a business and keep track of open jobs and immigrants.

May the 160K house I bought be worth less than $120K for the next 50 years.

My house is not my harebrained get rich scheme, I don't plan on retiring and selling my house out from under my adult children who either may or may not have a house by then. My house is a family institution, it's not a commodity of our fortune.

If the RE stays like this, The house will be deeded to my kids long before I die. So the stinking greedy filthy Libs don't force them to sell it over inheritance tax.
My house will paid off in less than 4 years, then I'll deed it to my kids.

marcus says

generalizations about liberals

The word "liberal" itself is a generalization about liberals.

Sure, there are shades of grey everywhere, but Milo does in fact troll what is currently the mainstream "liberal" point of view expertly. It's not just a few individuals. It's millions of people on the left who have collectively lost their precious minds lately.

And... NPR is droning on right now about how inhumane a border wall is, because it will force illegal immigrants to risk their lives in hot dangerous deserts to cross illegally into America.

Again, the left has this bizarre notion that the citizens of a different country are owed something by this country. They are owed nothing by America except speedy deportation.

One could argue that the wall is actually more humane as well, because if it is truly impossible to get in illegally, they won't even try to anymore.

Bellingham Bill says

White supremacy is not a winning ideology in this world.

There are indeed costs in accepting alien cultures into any society but you have to look at the whole picture, not just the costs.

There's a billion-plus muslims on this planet so we need to learn how to live with them and not denigrate them.

So wrong on so many levels.

White supremacy? You mean "Western Civilization"?

And why do we have to accept the "costs" and "learn to live with them" and not the other way around?

Muslims are leaving their failed and backward societies to come live with us, they are the ones that need to adapt and respect the laws and cultures of their new homes.

All you need is a social security check of about $2000+ per month and $60,000.

You can then live in any number of foreign countries in luxury, have a housekeeper who will usually have sex with you, enjoy the best food for practically nothing, and be treated like royalty by the locals. I've never met a male expat who regretted getting the hell out and I have spoken to dozens if not a hundred by now. Likewise I have never met any man who has lived as an expat for more than a year or two and didn't want to go back to whatever small pond he was a big frog in.

I'll never forget one guy I talked with who relocated to Russia. BTW I don't think Russia is the best choice here but this was his experience. I didn't save the conversation but here's the cliff notes version:

"For years I traveled overseas whenever I could and eventually I fell in love. After maintaining a long distance romance for awhile, I had made up my mind to finally become an expat and live in a foreign country. I saved my money, sold everything I owned, and in 2010 I finally got the courage to pull up stakes and leave.

When the plane landed and my new wife jumped into my arms, I couldn't help it and cried my eyes out. A massive weight was lifted off my chest along with all the oppression, contempt, and intolerance I had grown up with in the United States. Life here is challenging in many ways but these challenges are manageable. There's no feeling of hopelessness. Quite the contrary, every day I see ways in which I can make things better, safer, more enjoyable for me and my family. I've lost weight and now I can speak Russian. I've gone from a poor bastard who spent 80% of his waking hours in a barren cubicle slaving away for a giant corporation to someone essential, vital, and respected. I'll never go back."

He was 55 years old when he moved and he's over 60 now.

I don't plan on retiring. To enjoy what? Margarittaville with $9 beers, and crappy DJ's, $16 parking at the Beach if the garage isn't full, Hip Hop in Irish bars?
What me cruising along in a classic convertible Detroit era ride, with my Bermuda shorts, Lemmon Chiffon shirt, on my way to the Post office and community center to play Dominos.
To be harrased by punks on the way, because Bernie sanders told them I robbed their money from them, because I'm on a fixed income.

Fuck that, I'll be driving to work, and I'll pull my gun on them and tell them to fuck off. And get out my way assholes! I'm on my way to work so I can pay taxes, so you idiots can bitch about the responsible adults.

I do not like Reverse mortgage but I believe that you can get a monthly amount out of your equity in the house. That, Social security and your saving should work and after that you can call Dr Kervokian.

Pulmonary embolism. I almost died from it myself after a non-stop airplane trip from New York to California.

You sit in your computer chair for 22 hours, a large clot forms in your leg veins, and when you get up and walk around it breaks loose and blocks your pulmonary artery completely. Unable to push blood through the blockage, the heart struggles an then stops completely.
