HUD Chief Ben Carson protects poor Americans and enforces the law – Why is that a problem?
By Newt Gingrich (Original source Fox News)
“In a bold move, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is both helping poor Americans and enforcing the law.
Some in Congress may consider enforcing the law and prioritizing help for poor Americans (including people who immigrated to the U.S. legally) over help for people in the country illegally controversial or unacceptable. The solution for their position is for Congress to change the law. Until then, it is pretty hard to complain that a cabinet officer is enforcing the law which Congress wrote.
Helping poor American families is a core mission of the HUD. One lifeline HUD extends to vulnerable families is housing assistance.
Yet, 75 percent of Americans eligible for housing assistance – many of whom are children, seniors, or persons living with a disability – are prevented from receiving the financial aid to which they are legally entitled.
In fact, millions of qualified American families are stuck on waiting lists that have unending queues – the average of which stretch on for years.”
