I apologize for the late post.

To be honest, I’ve been dealing with personal issues right now, and to say I’m not in a good mood would be an understatement. Add on to that a root canal at 0600 this morning, and I’m downright grumpy.

Although the root canal was needed. That tooth was in bad shape. Thanks, military, for destroying yet another part of me that the civilian world gets to fix! At a pretty penny as well. At least the dentist was top notch. Kudos to him and his team. They made things seem simple, and he was a wizard with the Novocain.

I’ve talked quite a bit about illegal immigration over the years, both here and at my old place. I note this piece over at PJ media lamenting the cost being laid on schools as hoards of illegal alien children begin to flood into the schools.

The Wall Street Journal explained in a May 25 piece that up to a million illegal alien kids have entered America since 2021, when Biden took office. In Denver schools alone last year, there was a reported budget shortfall of a staggering $17.5 million because of illegals. Of course, Denver is a woke sanctuary city, but illegal aliens are being sent all over the country. Every state is a border state now, and that’s a serious problem for school systems.

It should come as no shock that Drooling Joe the Chinese Hand Puppet and his open borders are a deliberate action to help bankrupt this country. That schools are feeling the hit is a “duh” moment. But my brain took a different tack.

Wanna know why housing costs have skyrocketed in the past few years? Do you think the influx of millions of people who shouldn’t be here might factor into that?

Oh yeah, I know that thousands of them end up in hotels in big cities. But I can guarantee you that a significant portion of them end up loose in the country. Maybe they have friends and family helping them. I can tell you from personal experience that it only takes one legal person helping the illegals to turn a neighborhood into little Mexico. Or little Venezuela, or where ever they come from. When I was stuck in Lost Angeles, the houses on my street would have two or three families living in them.

Now spread that out around the country. And factor in all the people fleeing the invasion or various communist states, pushing into more rural areas.

When you shove millions of people who shouldn’t be here into the housing market, you’re going to create a shortage. Now I’m certain there are other shenanigans going on, like Blackrock buying up entire neighborhoods. But the illegal alien flood is certainly a contributing factor in the housing market.

And like I said, this is deliberate action. It’s the Cloward-Piven strategy being enacted in real time.

Prepare locally. Buy more ammo.

UPDATE: Huh. Look what I found.

The U.S. currently has an estimated shortage of 4 million to 7 million homes as developers struggle to keep up with demand amid harsh financial conditions and burdensome regulatory processes, according to Pew Charitable Trusts. Average Americans looking for a home are being squeezed by rising housing costs due to inflation and elevated mortgage rates, but the recent influx of illegal immigrants is putting even more stress on the system by aggravating the current shortage of supply in the housing market at a rate that developers can’t keep up with, according to experts who spoke to the DCNF.


  1. I was living near Charlotte, NC, when the 2008 meltdown of the economy commenced. The bank failures, the refinery failures, and the subsequent loss of jobs, particularly in construction, and sharply increased fuel prices, led to collapse of illegal migrant employment.

    So, what happened then?

    Well, at THAT time, illegals couldn’t collect benefits for being out of work. In the school I was working at during that time, we had quite a few Hispanic students – most of whom left within a very short time span.

    They self-deported. Which is what people do, if The Left is not permitted to prop up their presence with government money (don’t kid yourself, they are too cheap to spend their own cash).

    Locally, there were lean times, due to unemployment, high prices, and a very shaky housing market. It wasn’t the illegal population that suffered the most, it was the Native Americans (those born in the USA).

    Sounds a lot like today, doesn’t it?

    For our own good, stop spending, and save up some cash (and, as a hedge against inflation, lay in goods that will be needed in a crisis, as well as highly tradable goods). Make your home defensible. Find alternative ways to cook, keep warm/cool, and have potable water, should the systems experience breakdowns.

    And pray. A lot.

  2. I think that ending all handouts for illegals is just step one. But it’s a big step, and I don’t see D.C. doing it any time soon.
