Trump is cracking down on illegal immigration.
Yet, the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge that President Trump has had a positive impact.
But a new report proves them wrong and proves that he truly is the President of “America first.”
A new report shows that construction companies in Texas are being forced to pay higher wages to U.S. construction workers because of the crackdown on illegal immigration.
But of course you don’t see any of that in the liberal mainstream media, do you?
They continue to demonize President Trump as if he was the anti-Christ, refusing to acknowledge all of the positive effects he’s already had in his first 200 days.
He’s deregulated wasteful Obama-era rules and regulations that have saved nearly 22 billion dollars so far.
Trump followed through on his promise to nominate Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch in the first days after taking the oath.
The stock market is at an all-time high because businesses trust Trump’s leadership and business experience.
There are many, many others, and while the leftist-run media continues to perpetuate a fake Russia-Trump conspiracy, he’s proving them all wrong and showing everyone that America comes first.
Fox News reports:
“President Trump’s tough stance on immigration may be having an unintended consequence — higher housing costs.
That’s because builders say it’s getting harder and harder for them to find workers, especially in places that rely on immigrant labor.
“There’s just not anybody you can hire out there,” said Stan Marek, CEO of Marek Construction.
Just how bad is it?
According to the National Association of Home Builders, more than 56 percent of developers nationwide are reporting labor shortages.
NAHB says the problems started when the recession hit and domestic construction workers dropped out of the market to find other jobs.
At the same time, immigrant workers went back to their home countries. But as the economy has picked up and the construction industry has heated up, those workers have remained missing.
The problem is compounded in hot real estate markets where more and more housing projects are finding fewer and fewer workers. In places like North Texas, recently, it’s been a triple whammy.
“Half of the workers in construction in Texas are undocumented,” Marek said. “We do hear that there are a lot of undocumented workers that are leaving the state, going to other states that don’t have the anti-immigrant sentiment and many of them are going back to Mexico.”
Ted Wilson with Residential Strategies, Inc. has run the numbers.
“We’ve seen direct construction costs climb by over 30 percent,” Wilson said, “and a lot of that is directly attributed to what builders are having to pay their subs and trades in wages.”
Meaning, with so few workers out there, construction companies have had to pay more to attract them, which adds to the cost of a home.
“You know, when you figure that 60 percent of the cost of a job is labor,” Marek said, “that’s a lot of money.”
Wilson said companies have had to get by with fewer workers, so in addition to paying more for a house, you’ll likely have to wait longer for it to get built.
“Instead of 12 guys coming out to frame your house, you get four guys,” he said.
Wilson claims that sort of shortage can add a month or two to the time it takes to build a home.
But apart from higher prices and inconvenience to consumers, Marek said the worker shortage is a drag on the economy, keeping the recovery from going full throttle.
Marek said he is turning down projects for lack of workers.
“I think if we were able to find the legal workers,” says Marek, “we could add in our company maybe another five to 600 people.
There’s work out there if we could find those people.”
This caters to hard-working U.S. workers and not illegal immigrants who are leeching off the system by doing the bare minimum and not paying taxes.
Trump is truly saving America.
