A lot of people seem to be incapable of applying basic economic principles.

So, taking into consideration the illegal population, if those people were not present in the US, what would the effect of their absence be on:

1. Housing availability
2. Housing affordability
3. Housing mobility
4. Housing development

I want to see if any of these liberal posters can get any of these right.

Rent for low income Americans would plummet.

Housing prices would self correct, as the cost to build, would increase in labor and material cost. But there would be more tearing down old rundown areas and building new.
The barro's would be gone.

First of all it depends where you live in this country. Housing availability wouldn't change and neither would affordability in my area. And I am so sick of housing development with these mega homes. No one but the rich can afford it certainly not the middle class.

All of those factors would improve, especially in California.

Our gardeners are a non-immigrant father-son team.
