Trump has been vowing to rid immigrants without documents.

If he goes through with this plan, I think it could screw up a lot of NYC neighborhoods as many of the illegal immigrants did contribute some good and established a life with family and work hard and have made businesses. Of course, there are some that take advantage of the welfare system and do not work and bring some bad things.

I think there will be a lot of immigrant neighborhoods with a lot of abandoned properties and/or units if he goes through this plan and it could lead a lot of NYC areas back into the 1970s.

What does everyone think?

Nothing will happen at all. It was all BS.

For better or worse, this is correct.

The people on this forum are praying that Trump is talk, but Obama himself already deported 2 million immigrants. Some people are in denial.

What would happen is that real estate prices would go down due to vacancies. More people would move in these neighborhoods, because this would be prime real estate that has been freed up.

it would definitely impact the job market as small businesses will be forced to pay more.

If even a liberal like Obama who claimed to love immigrants deported two million, what would a conservative who ran on the platform of dealing with illegal immigration do?

I predict many illegals won't even wait till Trump takes office and might just leave out of fear.

I think the suburbs would more likely see an immediate effect if Pres Trump starts enforcing immigration laws. Most of the illegals and people on temporary immigration status such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary protected status (TPS) seems to live in the Suburbs such as LI. This is where the jobs (landscaping, domestic jobs, food service jobs, baby sitting etc.) that they are overly represented in is located. Housing is much cheaper. You can still find houses (not in the coveted areas) for under 300K and the accompanying cheaper rents. The immigrant neighborhoods in the city in my limited experience seems to be overwhelmingly full of legal immigrants and working poor who have nothing to worry about if they are US citizens or Legal Residents without criminal records. I think Trumps actions in deregulation and Tax incentives to business will have a bigger effect on housing. Believe it or not deportations have increased. Many illegals self deported after the recession and have just started coming back. The people who are driving up the cost of housing are legal residents/citizens who come to the city for jobs are willing and able to pay premium to live in the confines of the city.

According to articles in the New York Times ALREADY many illegals are leaving out of fear. When you get busted by immigration, they don't deport you the next week. Instead you go to a sort of immigration jail, where you spend time there for awhile until a judge gives the deportation order. That can take a long time.

A lot of illegals were reported to be saving up their money for a move, so according to the NY Times spending is down in many immigrant neighborhoods.
