Which would drive values down more? Cars sitting around or the properties sitting empty?

Around here, properties don't sit empty for long. They sell fast. Having 12 cars parked where there is only space for two or three, and multiply by other houses and it will drag down values, or that is what is claimed. It is not my claim but I do understand those who complain about the situation. I used to live in a two bedroom apartment with my family of 5. Upstairs, in an apartment exactly like ours, lived 18 illegals and some kids, who were friends of my daughters. You are wasting your time trying to convince me that such living arrangements does not have an effect on others living nearby. It doesn't matter if it's an apartment or a typical single family home.

We are talking if 10-30 million people were gone.

Whatever these caravaners are they are not cheap labor or any kind of labor. They do not, generally, come to work.

This is pure conjecture and speculation. You donít have a clue so please donít pretend like you have any inkling of an understanding about who these people are, their motives for coming to the U.S., the job skills they possess, or their level of dedication to employment.

I think the burden of proof has to be on those that want to come, especially if they try to sneak in.

Yes, let’s allow USCIS and Homeland Security to do their job and not make blind assumptions about the people in the caravans and their ability to be contribute to the US labor force.

Are you supporting them? Are you under the mistaken notion that they can survive here without working?

The people in the caravans are mostly asylum seekers. Needing a job is not a viable reason to claim asylum. We don't need any more blue-collared laborers in our country. If we do we will provide visas for them but it's not done on our border.
