WATCH: Omar Navarro is the Republican running to unseat Maxine Waters
Rep. Maxine Waters is furious with a new Trump administration rule that is “cruel,” and is demanding that Trump withdraw it. 20 other Democrats are joining waters in her crusade.
What is so “cruel” about this new rule, you ask? It prevents illegal immigrants from gaming the system and taking aid from legal American citizens.
From Washington Examiner:
The proposal, published Friday in the federal register, would target families in which at least one member is living in the country illegally.
Current rules already bar immigrants without legal status from receiving federal housing subsidies, but families of mixed immigration status — with at least one person being a legal resident — are exempted so they can all stay together.
“This proposed rule is yet another proposal from HUD under your leadership that fundamentally contradicts the agency’s mission ‘to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all,’” the Democrats wrote in a Friday letter to Ben Carson, the Housing and Urban Development secretary. “This cruel and needless targeting of struggling immigrant families only contributes to historic patterns of inequality, which ultimately hinder the U.S. housing market and American economy.”
It is so painfully clear that Democrats value illegal immigratns more than American citizens. This is just the latest in a long line of proof. I am always amazed how they can’t see that if America doesn’t succeed, NO ONE who is trying to come to our country for a better life can be saved.
The new rule would prevent illegal aliens from living in houses that receive subsidies from HUD regardless of whether they were the direct recipient or not.
The previous rule allowed illegal aliens to benefit from subsides by living with relatives who were legal citizens.
Essentially, one legal immigrant was allowing several illegal aliens to benefit from the program, which took away from American citizens being able to take part in the program.
Ben Carson has made it very clear why this rule is necessary: “We need to make certain our scarce public resources help those who are legally entitled to it. 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.”
“Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime,” a Trump administration official said.
The Trump administration estimates that around 32,000 households nationwide benefit from federal housing subsidies despite being headed by illegal immigrants.
I think President Trump just earned another 32,000 household votes. It’s important we share messages like this with as many people as possible because we know CNN and MSNBC won’t ever tell their viewers about how he is helping law-abiding American citizens.
Trump needs the help and support of the American people now more than ever. Make sure you rep Trump 2020 gear so people don’t fall for the fake news saying no one likes him. We are giving away free Trump hats and coins if you pay shipping and handling to help spread awareness.
