Think about all those laid off people that would like to leave the area in search of work, but no one will buy their houses. Even then, where would you go? Just about all companies across the country are laying off. Who will make the house payment? Even the banks will not be able to unload the repossessed houses. Who will buy? What will these layoffs mean for the price of a house in the Peoria area?

I am amazed that "free trade" policies are still in force. Time to send the Mexican workers back home, seal the borders, and not allow any imports into the country. For example, countries such as Japan, China, and Mexico are successful because they import next to nothing. Let's bring back the prosperous 1950's and ban imports (except for coffee and bananas, of course).
