An immigration watchdog was outraged to learn the Biden administration is allowing illegal aliens to use taxpayers’ money to help them afford public housing when millions of Americans are struggling and many are homeless.
In a recent announcement, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia Fudge announced that her agency would not follow a Trump-era policy that ensured only U.S. citizens receive housing aid. That means, in practical terms, illegal aliens will benefit from the service.
According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, Fudge and HUD plan to distribute 70,000 emergency housing vouchers nationwide to help approximately 130,000 people, including illegals.
“We are doing everything we can possibly to take any living person in this nation off the streets,” Fudge told reporters.
“If you snuck across the border last night,” says FAIR spokesman Ira Mehlman, “you are entitled to the same housing assistance and vouchers that somebody who served this nation’s military.”
Ben Carson, the HUD secretary under Donald Trump, said during his term last year that “fairness requires that we devote ourselves to legal residents who have been waiting, some for many years, for access to affordable housing.”
