Illegal Aliens Guests of Public Housing

Un. Fucking. Believable.

Untold thousands of illegal immigrants live in public housing at a time when hundreds of thousands of citizens and legal residents are stuck waiting years for a spot.

Illegal immigrants make up a tiny portion of the 7.1 million people in federal housing, according to government statistics. But authorities may be unaware of thousands more, and critics say no illegal immigrant should get housing benefits.

The issue made headlines in November with news that Zeituni Onyango, an aunt of President-elect Barack Obama, was living in Boston public housing while in the country illegally.

The federal government, which funds the lion’s share of the nation’s public housing, requires only that illegal immigrants share a home with at least one family member who is in the country legally and pay their share of the rent.

While there are no hard numbers on illegal immigrants in public housing, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reports that 29,570 people — 0.4 percent of all those in federally funded housing — are “ineligible noncitizens.” Some may be on temporary visas, such as highly educated workers or college students, but many are believed to be illegal immigrants.

Frank Bean, director of the University of California, Irvine’s Center for Research on Immigration, Population and Public Policy, estimates at least half of ineligible noncitizens — or about 15,000 — are illegal immigrants with U.S.-born children. Anyone born on U.S. soil is automatically a citizen, making their families eligible for federal housing.

The HUD tally does not offer a full picture of how many illegal immigrants are in public housing.

How’s this for a kick in the ass?:

It doesn’t include housing funded by state and local governments, where eligibility requirements vary. Massachusetts, where Obama’s aunt occupied one of about 50,000 state-funded units, doesn’t ask immigration status under a 1977 federal consent decree in a class-action lawsuit that prohibits the state from denying the benefit to illegal immigrants.

That makes no fucking sense. How can the federal government allow states to harbor illegals when it violates its own federal statute? (Title 8 of the U.S.Code)

Other illegal immigrants may live in public housing without notifying authorities.

No shit.

“It seems that the larger concern would be those who we don’t know about that may be in the U.S. illegally and living in federal housing, yet never risk presenting themselves to HUD,” said Jonathan Graffeo, a spokesman for Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.

Hell, they never presented themselves in this country legally to begin with.

Some prospective tenants and advocates of immigration restrictions are angry about U.S. citizens waiting for housing aid that some number of illegal immigrants are enjoying.

……”I don’t think we should take a second seat to anyone,” said Daryl Ford, who applied for housing aid last year and lives in a San Diego homeless shelter. “We send money to everyone else in the world but we’re struggling here.”

And what about Obama’s illegal aunt?

Onyango moved into federally funded housing in 2003 and stayed there after 2004, when an immigration judge denied her asylum application and ordered her to leave the country.

Onyango transferred to an apartment funded only by the state, which cannot ask about immigration status under the court order. In November, her attorney said she was staying with relatives in Cleveland and would fight her deportation order.

  1. Just a reminder of history for any and all Illegal abetors and apologists, who bitch about “moving borders”, “human rights” and ancestry:

    The Aztecs ripped the beating hearts out of, on average, 10 to 20 thousand people a year, because their “gods” demanded large amounts of blood and sacrifice.
    The Mayans and Incas practiced the same level of bloodshed.

    If you sprayed their temples with Luminol, they’d glow in the dark for miles.

    The Central, South, and North American tribes were not a civilized people; holding hands, singing kumbaya, and living in peace. Wholesale slaughter of enemies and innocents didn’t just materialize when the Spaniards showed up.

    They killed men, women and children with equal savagery.

    The ‘native American Indians’ were just as brutal over territory and dominance. They fought and warred among themselves and each other long before any European set foot on the continent.

    And on that note:

    According to current scientific knowledge, human beings did not evolve in North or South America but instead arrived by sea or by a land bridge that formerly connected North America with Asia. Most (if not all) of those indigenous peoples descended from peoples living in Siberia.

    They entered North America by at least 12,000 years ago and diversified into hundreds of culturally distinct nations and tribes. Some indigenous peoples of the Americas supported agriculturally advanced societies for thousands of years. In some regions they created large sedentary chiefdom polities, and had advanced state level societies with monumental architecture and large-scale, organized cities. Scholars’ estimates of the total population of the Americas before European contact vary enormously, from a low of 10 million to a high of 112 million. Whatever the figure, scholars generally agree that most of the indigenous population resided in Mesoamerica and South America, while about 10% resided in North America.

      Oh, by the way: There’s a large contingent of American hispanics who would like to tell you something:

      We are Americans of Hispanic heritage who believe in America. We believe in the governmental institutions and laws that make this country the greatest in the world. It is because of this strong belief in the principles of freedom, individual liberties, the rule of law, and democracy that we formed You Don’t Speak for Me!: American Hispanic Voices Speaking Out Against Illegal Immigration.

      American Hispanic voices are being shouted down by the hate and race-directed rhetoric of those who do not appreciate the laws of our country. We of You Don’t Speak for Me! give voice to those without a voice and those whose opposition to illegal immigration is drowned out by illegal aliens and their supporters marching in the streets demanding undeserved “rights” of U.S. citizens.

      We are standing together to say to the those who come here illegally and those who would give amnesty to those who have broken our laws, you are wrong and you should not be claiming to speak for all American Hispanics. You Don’t Speak for Me!
