...illegals lower house prices, by just moving in.
Actually in my neighborhood they have considerably raised house values because for whatever reason there are 2 towns in the DC area that are meccas for illegals; herndon and manassas park. i live in "the park" as i affectionately call it and our population is at somewhere around 90% hispanic with a good 50% of those 90% being illegals. Since they all want to live here they have driven the cost of real estate way up. ive made a mad bundle on my house in the past 3 years.
We also have THE highest real estate taxes in the state of Virginia in this town due to the other problems with illegals such as health care, schools, etc. This town used to be a very tiny one horse town before we were invaded with only 2 lane roads in and out for the most part with another larger road (rt 28). Now with all of the influx it takes 30 minutes to go from one side to the other which is about 8 miles.
I got to see the whole thing in slowmo as the invasion took place. It was a very cool sociological experiment in getting to see how an entire town can be converted to little mexico in under 5 years. viv la revolucion'....
