Ben Carson, the Housing and Urban Development Secretary, is tired of America paying to house illegal immigrants.
In order to change that, he has proposed the removal of federally subsidized housing available to illegal immigrants.
Statistics estimate that some 32,000 subsidized households are not occupied by legal U.S. residents.
Unfortunately during the latest House Financial Services Committee hearing, congressional Democrats decided to once again take the side of people who illegally invade the country over rightful U.S. citizens.
Rep. Maxine Waters began by labeling Carson’s plan as “cruel.”
Which was quickly followed by Rep. Carolyn Maloney mistakingly said that the plan would “bring nothing but despair to thousands of American families.”
Maloney continued referring to illegals as “Americans” saying, “We cannot create affordable housing for Americans by throwing other Americans out in the street with no place to go […] Your plan to create vacancies by making 55,000 American children homeless is among the most damaging proposals I have ever seen … Where will they live?”
But Carson was prepared for such questions.
“If you read the rule carefully, you will see that it provides a six-month deferral on request if they have not found another place to live,” he responded. “And that can be renewed two times for a total of 18 months, which is plenty of time for Congress to engage in comprehensive immigration reform so that this becomes a moot point.”
He then took things further, challenging Maloney to offer reasoning to the legal residents of the country who are forced to struggle.
“If in fact you want to explain to the American citizens who have been on the wait list for several years in your district in New York why we should continue to support families that are not here legally, I would be happy to join you in helping explain that to them.”
Carson then boiled the issue down to the basics by saying the proposal was not “cruel” or “mean-hearted,” but rather “this is common sense. You take care of your own first.”
