Open up Immigration to End the Housing Crises

Here is a solution to the housing crises that many may not have considered. Open our borders to well meaning, peaceful, productive people around the globe. In a flash, I will bet that the housing slump in Canada and in the US will come to an abrupt end. Currently, in Canada and the US, immigration policies are very restrictive, preventing productive, employable people from entering our borders.   Imagine the demand for housing skyrocket if immigration policies are relaxed. Millions of potential buyers would flood the market. Of course I am not suggesting to forgo criminal background checks to prevent unwanted and dangerous individuals from coming to our shores. Rather, by opening up immigration to productive, law abiding immigrants, many of our economic woes including the housing slump would be solved, almost over night.

But governments, being what they are, do not typically think outside the box and the “protectionist”  lobbyists are influential. I therefore do not see a relaxed immigration policy on the horizon any time soon. Rather, given our concerns, valid as they are, about national security, the direction immigration policies have taken are more restrictive and this is a trend I see continuing.

In any case, all we can do is assist as many people as we can to successfully immigrate to Canada and the US and do our part!

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.

I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
