Eh, they would be slower and more expensive. I prefer illegals to cut my grass, they work much cheaper and harder with the threat of ICE and deportation hanging over their heads, especially these days.

We should definitely deport a bunch just for good measure but we have to keep a few around to get the real ****** jobs done.

Short term decline but long term increase in housing prices due to increased labor costs in the construction industry.

So not true. There is no big movement of American born unskilled laborers being pushed out of jobs by illegal immigrants. It just isn't true.

It is true. Even business owners who supply American laborers are being pushed out.

40 years ago most construction workers were black or white. Unskilled immigrants drive down the cost of labor.
