    The federal government must force tens of millions of suburban voters to sacrifice their houses’ value, their quiet schools, and their green neighborhoods so poor immigrants can have cheaper rents and investors can build more houses, according to the New York Times‘ editorial board.

    “The federal government is an irresistible force when it chooses to prioritize an issue. It is past time to prioritize the availability of affordable housing” for immigrants, says the July 7 editorial, titled “A New Approach on Housing Affordability.”

    The editorial starts with a complaint about housing prices — but it never mentions the obvious fix: Ending the federal policy of annually importing 1 million immigrant workers, consumers, and renters, which inflates housing prices and class competition for good neighborhoods and good schools. Reduced immigration, in contrast, would raise Americans’ salaries, lower their housing prices, improve their schools, and also disappoint real-estate investors.

    Want lower housing costs? Get government out of the way so builders can build more, faster. Get rid of all the government regs and boards that make evicting system-playing leeches almost impossible in many cities. And get rid of rent control, because it suppresses expansion of the rental housing market (when supply expands more than demand, prices fall because suppliers have to compete for buyers).

    IOW, the solution is significantly less involvement in the housing market, not more!

    I'm sure none of this is supposed to happen in the neighborhoods of anyone on the New York Times‘ editorial board

    Already happening in my neighborhood. When I moved in we had no Hispanic families on our street, just middle class whites and blacks. Now, there are at least 4 houses with Hispanics all with different state license plates on their cars, other than NJ that is.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    In metro Detroit, the Hispanic families are moving to Lincoln Park from SW Detroit, as they make enough money to buy homes instead of renting them. The houses are affordable, the schools are better than Detroit's, and their kids can ride their bikes without getting caught in gang crossfire. So far, it's working out okay. LP is an older suburb and the population of kids was falling off before this trend. A lot of the stores were empty and are getting filled with Super Mercados and Mexican restaurants.
