President Donald Trump’s administration is preparing to block illegals from being able to get taxpayer-funded housing vouchers.
The Trump administration already moved to bock illegals from getting housing paid for by taxpayers.
As Frontpage reported:
The December letter by Senator Menendez, who had recently been on trial for corruption charges, Senator Booker, on whose watch the $100 million poured into Newark public schools dissipated, and Senator Cortez-Mastro, who had been accused of taking dirty money, claimed to be, “appalled that the Trump Administration would exploit a federal government program to deny Dreamers an opportunity of owning their own home.” But it was the Democrats who had exploited a federal government program meant for poor Americans to benefit not only foreigners, but illegal aliens with no right to be here.
Along with that, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is moving to block illegals from taking vouchers that are meant for low income Americans.
According to the Washington Times, HUD is moving to block 32,000 illegals from getting housing assistance because it isn’t fair to actual American citizens who are getting displaced.
“Housing and Urban Development notified Congress Wednesday of the new rule, kicking off a schedule of publication and notice and comment that could have the plan finalized later this summer,” the paper reported.
The plan would scrap Clinton-era regulations that allowed illegal immigrants to sign up for assistance without having to disclose their status.
Under the new Trump rules, not only would the leaseholder using public housing have to be an eligible U.S. person, but the government would verify all applicants through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, a federal system that’s used to weed illegal immigrants out of other welfare programs.
Making matters worse, Obama put rules into place to allow “mixed” immigration status families to get housing subsistence meaning the American people are subsidizing criminal illegals all across the nation.
Trump aims to end all these bad rules.
“We’ve got our own people to house and need to take care of our citizens,” an administration official said. “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.”
