Carson, head of The Department of Housing and Urban Development, will enact a new rule that will stop illegal immigrants from scamming rules in place to stop them from accessing housing subsidies.
What most people do not know is that there are long waiting lists for subsidized housing and Trump wants those spots to go to Americans. Smart!
From The Washington Examiner:
“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.
