[Ed. – Democrats will raise hell over this, once again demonstrating that they care more about illegals than they do about Americans in need.]
Trump’s Department of Housing and Urban Development is proposing a new rule to keep illegal immigrants [semper sic] from skirting current rules that prevent those immigrants from accessing housing subsidies.
“We need to make certain our scarce public resources help those who are legally entitled to it,” department Secretary Ben Carson said in a statement. “Given the overwhelming demand for our programs, fairness requires that we devote ourselves to legal residents who have been waiting, some for many years, for access to affordable housing.”
The new rule would disallow illegal immigrants from living in houses that receive subsidies from the department regardless of whether they were the direct recipient or not. Previously, rules allowed illegal immigrants to benefit from subsides by living with relatives who were citizens.
“This proposal gets to the whole point Cher was making in her tweet that the President retweeted. We’ve got our own people to house and we need to take care of our citizens,” an official in the Trump administration told the Daily Caller.
