UPDATE: HUD moves to crack down on undocumented immigrants in public housing
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Politico:
The Department of Housing and Urban Development is moving to bar undocumented immigrants from receiving housing aid, saying it is acting on behalf of the millions of American citizens and legal residents who are waiting for public housing.
HUD is already prohibited from providing financial assistance to unlawful residents under a law enacted in 1980. But a proposed rule that the agency sent to Congress on Wednesday night would eliminate what it says is a regulatory loophole that allows people to live in subsidized housing without having their immigration status checked.
HUD cast the move as a way to trim housing waitlists: An emailed fact sheet said the agency “estimates there may be millions of qualifying U.S. citizens and legal U.S. residents languishing on waitlists for housing assistance.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Under the proposal, all HUD-assisted residents under the age of 62 would be screened through a Department of Homeland Security program called the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements.
People wouldn’t have to move out of public housing or lose their rental vouchers right away: Households that include unlawful residents would be able to “obtain temporary deferral of termination of assistance for up to 18 months,” according to the fact sheet.
Thanks to @realDonaldTrump‘s leadership, we are putting America’s most vulnerable first. Our nation faces affordable housing challenges and hundreds of thousands of citizens are waiting for many years on waitlists to get housing assistance. https://t.co/XmASs508Su
