Ben Carson: Housing for America's First Should Not Take Back Seat To Illegals

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, meme, text that says 'American Families First They should not take a back seat to illegal immigrants imgflip.com'A Powerful Message From Ben Carson. He is right to give U.S. citizens the top priority in public housing. There is a short supply. Why should American citizens be at the back of the list? by Jessica Vaughn
Carson asks why should we subsidize homes and living expenses for over 25,000 households living in the U.S. in violation of our laws?
60% of illegal immigrant households access at least one major welfare program. He says it encourages more illegal immigration.
He says senior citizens, veterans and the disabled who paid taxes for years before they fell on hard times are now shut out of housing assistance.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson faced harsh – and unwarranted – criticism from Democrats Tuesday when he appeared before the House Financial Services Committee.
Carson was defending his commonsense proposal to end public housing assistance for illegal immigrants.
Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) called the proposal “cruel” and “inconsistent with HUD’s mission.”
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) said it was “despicable,” and said it was “among the most damaging proposals in public policy” she’s ever seen.
The HUD Secretary told Maloney he would like to be with her when she explains to the American families in her district who are currently on a waiting list for public housing assistance why they should take a back seat to illegal immigrants.
Far from despicable, Carson’s proposal is a good one that restores fairness to the subsidized housing system and recognizes that American citizens have a greater right than illegal immigrants to government benefits.
Carson’s proposal would provide relief to low-income households headed by American citizens who now cannot get public housing due to a short supply.
Each apartment occupied by an illegal immigrant household is a unit that is unavailable to an American household.

Rep. Justin Amash Is The Number One Bona-fide Trump Hating Republican. by Roger Kimball

Editorial Note: Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) refused to vote for Trump in 2016 and may challenge the President as the Libertarian Party nominee in 2020. After the GOP nominated Romney in 2012, Amash said his only endorsement was for Ron Paul. 
Instapundit says "Amash is always ready to stand selflessly for principle, so long as it gets him good press."

The chief conclusion of the Mueller report — no collusion — was a watershed. The American people had been waiting around for nearly three years.
Every night, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, George Stephanopoulos, and their confrères bleated on about how the latest bombshell/tipping point/beginning of the end was just about to unseat the President.
RNC’s Ronna McDaniel says Amash has made a career out of ‘parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia.’ His latest tweets are just the latest installment in that anti-Trump comic book.
Maybe the soon-to-be former congressman can take John Brennan’s place mouthing anti-Trump slogans on the nightly news: Brennan will be occupied elsewhere, possibly clad in orange (it would be orange).
Anyway, the bottom line is that Justin Amash will soon be pursuing a new line of work, pundit, probably, maybe the Michigan correspondent for The Bulwark. Time will tell.

Democrats have controlled the House for nearly 5 months. Besides supporting infanticide, illegal immigrants, and whining about President Trump, can anyone tell me what they have accomplished?
