DUH: HUD Housing Should Put Americans First

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- We no longer live in a constitutional republic. We live in an idiocracy.

Only in modern-day America, under the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, is the basic proposition that federally subsidized public housing should benefit American citizens and legal residents slammed as “despicable” and “damaging.”

Those are the hysterical words used by Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York City to condemn the proposal discussed by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Tuesday to ban government aid to residents of HUD who shelter illegal immigrants. The rule change would end a Clinton-era regulation that allowed immigrants to obtain aid without having to disclose whether they were here legally. The Trump plan could free up an estimated 32,000 public housing slots, according to HUD, as 1.6 million applicants nationwide wait to be considered.

Democratic Rep. Juan Vargas of San Diego County couldn't believe Carson could be so “mean-spirited” in prioritizing law-abiding people over law-breaking ones.

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of Los Angeles called the illegal alien prohibition “cruel.”

Only in America are American public servants, who are sworn to uphold American laws and the U.S. Constitution, hounded by open borders liberals about putting Americans first. Instead of being forced to defend their own twisted and treasonous priorities, Democrats got an assist from open borders tools in the media making hay of Carson's unfamiliarity with some stupid real estate acronym. The squirrel-chasers at Newsweek sputtered: “Ben Carson doesn't know what an REO property is, thinks he's being asked about Oreos.” Politico clucked: “Ben Carson confuses a real-estate term and a cookie.”

Fake news narrative set: He's dastardly, dumb and hates immigrants!

Carson had patiently explained at the House Financial Services Committee hearing that families with illegal immigrants would still have up to 18 months to defer eviction and find somewhere else to live or to move back to their home countries. But that (undeserved) generosity was met with still more unhinged cries of “What about the children?” from the “America Last” Democrats whose first allegiance is to thousands of anchor babies born here to irresponsible border-trespassers, visa overstayers and deportation fugitives. They put their own children at risk in the first place. Not us.

You want to engage in “What about-ism?” What about the native-born military veterans? What about the elderly? And what about the destitute citizens down on their luck waiting for public housing slots to open up?

In Maloney's city, it reportedly takes an average of 99 months for a HUD applicant to secure an apartment.

In Waters' city, the waiting list for low-income Americans seeking Section 8 vouchers is 40,000 people and up to 11 years long.

In Vargas' county, the region now boasts the fourth-highest homeless population in the nation.

It is “only logical,” Carson pointed out, to put Americans ahead of the 32,000 HUD-housed residents deemed ineligible because of their immigration status. But logic is toxic to the Make America Disappear Lobby.

When I hear the impassioned paeans of Democrats on behalf of illegal immigrants fighting for their federal Section 8 vouchers, I am reminded of the most notorious deportation-evading denizen of government-subsidized housing: Zeituni Onyango, President Obama's illegal immigrant aunt, who died of cancer in 2014.

Remember? Onyango was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, and a perfect symbol of open borders ingratitude and metastatic entitlement. She overstayed a temporary visa for 14 years, never going home to Kenya. Screw our rules. Onyango had no job skills, no special talent and no claim of persecution. She didn't value the American dream. She was a dependency nightmare. She collected $700 a month in welfare benefits and disability payments totaling $51,000. Somehow, Onyango also drummed up money to apply for asylum and finagled her way into federal and state public housing in Boston.

She gamed the system under both Democratic and Republican administrations, dragged out her phony “asylum case” three times, dodged two deportation orders, illegally donated to her nephew's presidential campaign along the way, and then eventually secured a green card in 2010. Such are the perks of illegal immigrant privilege.

In a raging interview she gave to a Boston TV station before she died, Onyango savaged and taunted her American hosts. “If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen,” she spouted. “I didn't ask for it,” she retorted when asked about her public housing benefits. “They gave it to me. Ask your system. I didn't create the system.”

Well, Obama's ingrate aunt was right about that: She didn't create the system. Idiocrats built it. Idiocrats are defending it. And idiocrats would rather mock Carson's ignorance of a real estate acronym than own up to their own suicidal stupidity.

Here's the only acronym you need to know if idiocrats prevail: R.I.P., America. R.I.P.

    1. They even come to our borders and force themselves and their families to be let in for all the free bees. They must not be smart enough to realize they should be invited in rather than belligerent and force their presence on us. Along with that, they bring diseases that we have worked hard to eradicate and we have those diseases back. Not to mention they think they can run this country better than we can. Three cheers for Ben Carson who is trying to do things the right way.

    2. I am a 72 year old American citizen who begun our system to apply for a HUD house in Asheville, NC. The first thing I learned is that you must have a credit card to apply. I don’t have a credit card account so I am eliminated.

    3. As a member and supporter of the NRA it is a shame that the organization has such a big internal problem. What really bothers me is that all the anti-gun individuals including George Soros and Bloomberg love to see this organization under turmoil. I feel some of the negative comments must be from anti-gun supporters.

      1. Regardless of how or why this story exists, the responsibility and duty to police and maintain OUR government and OUR, “REPRESENTATIVES” lies squarely on the shoulders of each and every qualified U.S. citizen to REMOVE FROM OFFICE each and every person, elected or appointed that is in violation of their Oath Of Office or not performing the duties and being responsible to their constituents under the positions they hold.

        The failures of our government and it’S officials will only get, worse until the complacent citizens of the United States wake up pull their head out of their butt and take responsibility and apply their duty to maintain their government officials and I don’t mean the brain-dead wanna-be solution of, “Let’s wait,and vote them out of office!”.

        These politicians (By the way, Carson is DOING HIS JOB!) are destroying our nation, right now, TODAY! You do not wait until the next election, you remove them from office NOW and replace them with a representative that will be responsible and will fulfil their DUTY as well as abide by their oath of office!

    4. Its a sad day in this country when law breaking invaders have more rights than natural born citizens. They can recieve benefits that Americans sacrificed for without contributing anything . They respect no laws or borders and are rewarded for it by people in government who plan to use thier future votes to steal our republic from lawbiding American citizens . Anybody that supports this needs tried, convicted of treason and needs to dance on the end of a rope !
