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

Bonus!

We've never seen the following two things before:

a.) A president actually doing this

b.) Outlets like CNN and WaPo writing sensationalized editorials of this magnitude leading to a.) above

Donald is on dangerous grounds, but at the same time CNN/WaPo are doing a disgusting disservice to our country.

Gary Anderson says

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

Americans will build houses

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.

And the strategy to drive straight white men out of the Democratic party continues to work perfectly, distracting everyone from the real issues:

jazz music says

Why should representatives funnel all that money to the billionaires?

Why does fraud and malfeasance never get prosecuted and punished except for the rarest cases?

Why does passive income remain largely untaxed and wages fall over 30 years as productivity rises?

I'd say the LBGT religion is also nonsense being indoctrinated into children, and is anti human survival.

The further a population gets from traditional gender roles, the more likely it is to die out. It may be personal liberation, but it's also cultural and demographic suicide. Those traditional roles evolved for damn good reasons. That's what worked to bring us down to the present day, and that's what still works to keep us going as a country.

Individuals should have the choice to live as they wish, but I do not like their normalizing cultural and demographic suicide or recommending it, because it's the end of the line.
