Last September, the National Council of La Raza issued comments in favor of a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.”
Under the regulation, in October the Obama administration will be empowered to condition eligibility for community development block grants on redrawing zoning maps to create evenly distributed neighborhoods based on racial composition and income.
According to La Raza’s comment in favor of the regulation, “Hispanic families often do not know their housing rights and have cited fear of deportation as reason for not reporting rights violations.” By La Raza’s own analysis, then, HUD implementation of the racial rezoning rule will benefit those who “have cited fear of deportation” — that is, low-skilled, low-income illegal immigrants, either those who were outright illegal the moment they set foot in the U.S. or who have simply overstayed their visas. After all, who else would fear deportation?
Therefore, one of the sure effects of HUD’s regime will be to flood unwilling communities with a significant percentage of illegal immigrants.
Fortunately, the House of Representatives has already acted, passing an amendment to the Transportation and HUD appropriations bill by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz) in a close 219 to 207 vote to defund implementation of the regulation. Now, the bill moves to the Senate, where Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) has championed the cause, proposing the same amendment to the Transportation and HUD appropriations bill.
You know what to do! Let’s urge the U.S. Senate to adopt the Lee amendment to stop this radical illegal immigrant resettlement plan by Obama and HUD. It's time to stop this insanity!
