2016 US ELECTION CRISIS
5 MILLION FILIPINO FAMILIES PREPARE FOR THE WORST.
US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S
TNT EVICTION PROMISE:
Speculators Estimate The Eviction Will Negatively Affect
2 OUT OF 3 FILIPINOS LIVING IN AMERICA.
In the United States, the recent Presidential election has millions all across the world very worried about their future. The dollar exchange rate, market index and stock exchange has reported immediate dips and many global investors are freezing their funding until the riots, court cases, Federal investigations and subsequent market indicators can be more realistically speculated.
There are around 8 million Filipinos living in the United States right now. As promised, by the United States 45th President Elect Donald J. Trump, US Visa’s will be on freeze holds “…until we figure out what the hell is going on!” stated Trump. Therefore, hundreds of thousands of US Visa seekers with pending and new issue visa requests are flooding US Embassies across the globe.
Of the nearly 8 million Filipinos in the United States, new US President Elect Donald J. Trump has promised to swiftly begin his eviction of the estimated 5 million of which are illegal immigrants or TNT (tago nang tago). Needless to say, thousands of people have flooded the streets in New York City and Chicago in protest at the Trump Towers there. Simultaneously, illegal immigrants all over the US are scampering to relocate themselves, collect their things and be ready to flee at a moment’s notice.
That being said, these 5 million or so Filipino workers and their US and PH-based families are preparing for a –potential- rude awakening. Filipinos, work at least one, if not two –or three-jobs in America, they pay up to 40% of their earnings in US taxes, in addition to rent, utilities, food, clothing, travel, as well as own vehicles, have investments, spouses and/or families in the United States.
Many of the jobs occupied by TNT Pinoys, are low-paid, under-served positions which Americans do not want to have; such as fast-food, agriculture, domestic staff, seasonal, full-commission and temporary jobs. However, on the contrary, legal Filipino immigrants and workers hold many top professional positions; such as accounting, project management, beauty, wellness and IT industry jobs.
In America, every year, Filipinos represent over $4 million –or P200 million- of the estimated $7 million in remittances, investments and overall financial support sent via banks and wire transfers (like Western Union) to the Philippines by OFW’s (overseas foreign workers).
Many experts formerly have gambled on the perception that the US has no way to effectively evict these massive numbers of illegal immigrants; including the tens of millions from other countries around the world. They speculate that it may be too costly, to time consuming at devastate the US economy at-large.
However, according to data obtained by T.A.P.S. that is simply not true.
Unlike their Latino, Indian, Chinese or European counterparts who largely engage in micro-small and sole-entrepreneurial type businesses; such as catering, home maintenance, lawn care, retail and housekeeping, Filipinos depend on ‘jobs’ and are therefore easier to target.
In Trumps pitch to the American people, The Senate and Congress, the formula is simple: thousands of additional –even temporary- immigration enforcement investigators and officers, equal jobs. In addition, once evicted, each illegal immigrants also equals 1, 2 or 3 jobs technically available for US workers.
Good News: As results were being tallied, leading up to Donald Trump’s win of the US Presidential Election, Canada’s immigration website received so much traffic that it crashed and was off-line for hours.
Beginning December 1st, 2016 Canada, will open its boarders to Filipinos –as well as other Asians. Many Filipinos are expected to begin traveling to Canada instead of the United States, as well as hitting the boarders in Quebec.
