Well not saved, but a bottom can be established a lot sooner. What we forget about are the 11+Million illegal immigrants that are currently living in this country. Most only have checking accounts/prepaid debit cards. That is if they are lucky enough to fake a SSN and have it slide by the teller. I am not for amnesty, I am from Colorado and have seen first hand the damage that Illegals do to the state, increased insurance, higher health care, higher taxes to pay for social services as well as education. However from a monetary perspective, if we were to provide legal status to those 11+million workers, they would qualify for bank accounts, loans, real paychecks. Every illegal wants this, they want to be able to purchase a home that they can live in with their family, that they can raise their children in. Hispanics are well known for their family values and would start to purchase real estate if they were given the opportunity. THey will start by purchasing the sub 150k homes, thus establishing a bottom to the housing crisis. The demand for houses on the low end will start to push prices of houses up. Hispanics also have a large sense of pride/honor and will try to make their payments on time in order to establish good credit and provide for their future generations. i'm not for amnesty but it looks damn good as a way to stop the bleeding from the housing crunch....thoughts?
