It's WND, so take it with the appropriate sized grain of salt, but: New Obama Rule Could Force Cities to House Illegals
The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.He who pays the fiddler, calls the tune, and him with the gold, rules.
And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.
Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.And of course, this will be enforced by an activist, nominally non-partisan, but in fact, highly partisan bureaucracy controlled by democrats. Kind of the like the EPA, the IRS and the DOJ.
The proposed rule, which is set to take effect in October, would put teeth on the Fair Housing Act of 1968 by providing a set of standards, guidelines and goals, then use data to “measure” and “assess” how well a local community is meeting its Fair Housing obligations.
Some say the new rule will lead to “racial quotas” and will be exploited by HUD to aggressively absorb the nation’s swelling population of illegal immigrants into communities that are trying to keep them out.And if they don't like that, they can come in legally.
HUD’s proposed “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule” showed up in the Federal Register on July 19, 2013. The rule has the backing of special-interest groups that promote open borders. One such group, with close ties to President Obama, is the Council of La Raza, which filed a public comment in favor of the rule.
La Raza said most illegal immigrants don’t know their rights and “fear deportation,” thus making them susceptible to housing discrimination.
So, is that what is going on here? Local Official: Feds Drop 'Unknown Number' of Illegal Kids in VA County Without Warning
Prince William County, Virginia has become well-known in recent years for its tough stance on illegal immigration. So you can imagine how upset some local lawmakers were when they learned that the federal government had contracted to house illegal alien children in their county without informing any county officials.Prince William is a county on the Potomac River south of Washington D.C. It is well within commuting distance from D.C., and is rapidly changing from a rural, basically conservative county to a D.C. suburb with a strong purple tinge. Could this be part of a plan to further grow the blue zone around the Nation's Capitol? Because you know those kids are going to stay, don't you?
MRCTV spoke to Prince William County Supervisor, Corey Stewart about the situation that was thrust upon his county by the Obama Administration. We then attended a council meeting where outraged citizens spoke out against the move and had some harsh words for both the council members and the federal government.
Stewart claims that he has also heard rumors that the federal government plans to bring more of the minors to Prince William County. It is unclear what, if any, action local authorities can take to stop the continued influx of illegals into their community.
Two-thirds of illegal immigrant children approved for asylum
Nearly two-thirds of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children requesting asylum this year have had their initial applications approved, the House Judiciary Committee reported Friday in data that suggests those kids surging across the border who ask to stay will likely be able to gain admission to the U.S.Doesn't this imply we should invade Honduras and take away all their kids?
The numbers show both that the U.S. government generally believes the children are fleeing dangerous conditions that they cannot return to, and signals that it will be far tougher to deport most of the children.
According to the Judiciary Committee’s numbers, 65 percent of unaccompanied children’s asylum applications are approved by the initial asylum officer so far in 2014. Even those who are refused can ask for an appeal, which means the total number who end up staying, with government permission, is likely to be higher.
That figure doesn’t include the others who never apply for asylum and try to disappear into the shadows, or who spend years in the country awaiting court dates.
