Want a Robust Economy? Fix the Southern Immigration Crisis, Plus MH Market Updates

CNNmone4.5.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsMarket movers are many, and political or social headwinds are among them.  Some don’t realize that there have been HUD Code manufactured homes built south of the border for years.  Others don’t realize the significant effect that immigration – legal or illegal – has on the cost of labor, burdens on local, state, or federal governments, business and others.  On a day when the markets closed generally up, this evening we present 2 news videos on aspects of the growing border crisis, and what local, state, and federal officials who are dealing with the matter have to say.

If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further below, after the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.

The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



The Immigration Issue impacts our industry day by day, as one of the linked reports below makes clear.

The publishers of MHProNews include the son of legal immigrants, and this writer came to the U.S. legally from overseas too.  We are sensitive on several levels to the topic of immigration.  Immigration done properly can be healthy and good.

But we are pragmatic.  We believe that part of what makes America great is that it is a nation of laws.  Unenforced laws encourage lawlessness.  The human deaths, injuries, sexual trafficking, and other harms posed by illegal immigration is stark.

In one of the videos below, a sheriff explains that his deputies find 100 bodies a year tied to illegal border crossings.

MHProNews has examined this issue several times over the years, from the prism of various claims across the left-right spectrum.  There are relatively few Western nations allow what’s happening on the Mexican border to happen in their countries.  Those that have allowed it, have suffered social, legal, and other upheavals.

With that tee up, two videos tonight, the first from Fox Business.

Former Border Patrol chief Mike Fisher on President Trump’s comments about the southern border and the problems surrounding the U.S.’s immigration laws.

The second video is from a local Fox affiliate.

The first two minutes of their video below are largely silent handshaking, but at just after that 2 minute mark, President Donald J. Trump, along with a raft of sheriffs, immigration, and border officials each take turn speaking.

Per the local Fox affiliate, “The White House has touted a two-mile stretch of fencing President Donald Trump is visiting Friday as the first section of his proposed border wall to be built. In reality, the newly fortified structure commemorated with a plaque bearing his name and those of top immigration and homeland security officials was a long-planned replacement for an old barrier. It is one of a handful of projects that total $1 billion to replace existing barriers and build new ones across the border. As Trump promotes his signature campaign promise as the solution to the recent surge of migrant families crossing the border, here are questions and answers about the various barriers along the border and those that are in the works.”

The facts the local, state, and federal officials lay out in these two videos stand in serious contrast to what is often portrayed by some media outlets.

Count on this to be a hot button topic for the 2020 campaign.
