Trump Makes Bold Move to Prevent Illegals from Taking Public Housing from Citizens

According to new reports, President Trump’s administration is now taking steps to prevent illegal aliens from receiving government housing assistance.

The plan would involve the Trump administration blocking approximately 32,000 illegal aliens and their families from taking government assistance for public housing, requiring the leaseholder on public housing to be a legal US citizen.

An administration official stated, “We’ve got our own people to house, and need to take care of our citizens,” explaining, “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens.

“As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime,” the anonymous official reportedly added.

With the 2020 election drawing near, the issue of illegal migration remains a top priority for US voters, and continues to leave lawmakers bitterly divided.

How much are illegal aliens costing Americans? Even the housing cost alone is incredible.

Last month, I revealed that the Trump administration had moved to block illegal alien DACAers from getting taxpayer subsidized mortgages.

Now HUD is moving to block illegal aliens from taking public housing meant for Americans.

The Trump administration is proposing a new rule to try to block some 32,000 illegal immigrant-led families from claiming public housing assistance, saying it’s unfair to hundreds of thousands of Americans who are stuck on waiting lists.

The plan would scrap Clinton-era regulations that allowed illegal immigrants to sign up for assistance without having to disclose their status.

Under the new Trump rules, not only would the leaseholder using public housing have to be an eligible U.S. person, but the government would verify all applicants through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, a federal system that’s used to weed illegal immigrants out of other welfare programs.

“We’ve got our own people to house and need to take care of our citizens,” an administration official told The Washington Times. “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.”

Lefty activists keep complaining about a homeless crisis, yet they’re filling public housing with illegal alien invaders. That’s how much they care about American homeless people.
