Experts sound the alarm about the possible devastating impact caused by Trump’s dangerous second-term plan

Date:

Florida – The main worry for Donald Trump appears to be undocumented illegal immigration, even though the United States has a long history of illegal immigration, mostly due to its contribution to its multicultural society. The former president recently said on social media that he would take immediate action, including border security, should he win the upcoming November election. Trump’s controversial comments sparked heated discussions, which have brought illegal immigration back into focus.

The impact of immigration in Florida

The noticeable increase in immigration in recent years has put a significant strain on resources in certain states, such as Florida. The primary drivers of this is the incompetence of the federal government to properly protect the nation’s borders and the divisive policies and initiatives of President Biden and his administration that appear to encourage the ongoing increase of the illegal immigrant population in the United States.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has put the spotlight on a massive wave of migrants entering Florida. The CIS reports that a program started by President Biden in October 2022 allowed hundreds of thousands of likely illegal immigrants from certain countries to enter the United States using commercial planes, omitting the usual government ID requirements.

According to another study, President Biden dropped almost 200,000 deportation cases while in office. The reports shows that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) dismissed almost 200,000 cases since it failed to provide the Immigration Court with the required paperwork. There are notable effects from this administrative mistake in several areas. Due to this lack of the required documentation, more than half of the deportation cases in Miami, Florida, and Houston, Texas, were rejected.

Behind Trump’s controversial plan that raises concerns

In an interview with Time recently, Donald Trump offered specifics on a controversial strategy for a hypothetical second term, pointing out his goal to deport between 15 to 20 million people. Trump stated that he may mobilize the National Guard, and perhaps even the U.S. military, to carry out this mass eviction if he achieves re-election in November.  Economists, however, have raised major worries regarding this idea, suggesting that it could be damaging and badly affect the U.S economy.

Experts predict huge negative economic implications

According to a CNN, economists predict a possible reaction against Trump’s massive deportation program. Senior fellow at the Brookings Institution Wendy Edelberg expressed her confidence that such a large-scale immigration limiting campaign would have “negative” economic effects. She underlined the importance of immigrants in recent years in increasing demand in a number business areas.

“That’s the kind of thing that could spark a recession,” Edelberg explained, warning that while it might not cause a catastrophic recession, it would likely lead to a sudden decrease in aggregate demand, which is generally detrimental to economic stability. “Generally, that’s not the kind of thing that our economy likes,” she added.

Rising concerns

According to financial experts, Trump’s plan may make already-existing economic issues like inflation and a lack of workers worse. An extremely limited supply of workers in the event of a mass deportation could make it impossible for companies to fill positions. In turn, this might start inflation and force the Federal Reserve to maintain high borrowing costs for a longer period of time.

The incapacity of native-born workers to supply the labor demand alone is a major flaw in Trump’s plan, according to RSM’s Chief Economist Joe Brusuelas. He underlined that the equilibrium of the labor market depends on the immigration of foreign workers. Brusuelas cautioned against the possibility of a severe labor shortage and subsequent inflation should immigration numbers decline significantly.

“You would drive the unemployment rate down to 3% and wages would pop. You’d get classic inflation,” Brusuelas noted.

Unemployment, inflation, destabilizing economic steadiness

Trump’s plan to deport millions of people highlights the complexity and risks involved in broad immigration laws. Taking millions of people out of the labor might cause inflation and unemployment rates to rise, therefore undermining economic growth and stability. Such a large number of workers leaving would leave a gap that native-born workers by themselves could not fill, which would cause a sharp increase in labor demand and pay, which would exacerbate inflation.

Although the proposed plan by Trump seeks to address immigration concerns, it carries significant economic risks that could hurt the American economy. The likelihood of workers shortages, higher inflation, and a possible recession highlight the need of carefully analyzing the wider economic effects of such programs. As long as there is immigration debate, it is critical to take into account the potential economic fallout to avoid inadvertently hurting the country’s economy.
