The administration is implementing a new scheme via Housing Secretary and potential Hillary running mate Julian Castro. Castro is of the far-left and he is an open borders proponent.
They are looking to reallocate funding for Section 8 housing to punish suburbs that are too white and too wealthy.
The scheme entails super-sizing vouchers to help urban poor afford higher rents in pricey areas, including Westchester County which the left has long resented. Their efforts to social engineer Westchester caused the liberal residents to vote in a Republican legislator, Rob Astorino, who is trying to ward off the assault. They are in the eye of the hurricane.
They are a test case. Among other assaults, HUD said a quarter-acre lot is discriminatory. They want all limits removed. Your home could end up next to a factory under their plan. Right now zoning rules protect inhabitants but the federal government will take away those protections. Now they have to deal with this voucher scheme.
This scam will begin in the fall. It was done in Dallas a few years ago and it shifted the violent crime to rich neighborhoods.
Redistribution and social justice at its finest.
Castro will sue suburban landlords for discrimination if they don’t comply and take in Section 8 tenants with criminal records.
Castro’s new regulation, known as “Small-Area Fair Market Rents” (SAFMR), will likely be finalized this October, before Obama leaves office.
The New York Post reported that it will set voucher rent limits by ZIP code rather than metro area, the current formula, which makes payments relatively small. For example, the fair market rent for a one-bedroom in New York City is about $1,250, which wouldn’t cover rentals in leafy areas of Westchester County, such as Mamaroneck, where Castro and his social engineers seek to aggressively resettle Section 8 tenants.
They want to spread the criminals around to the suburbs where many minorities have also fled to escape urban crime.
“We want to use our housing-choice vouchers to ensure that we don’t have a concentration of poverty and the aggregation of racial minorities in one part of town, the poor part of town,” the HUD chief said recently, adding that he’s trying to undo the “result of discriminatory policies and practices in the past, and sometimes even now.”
Criminals are to be called ‘justice involved individuals’ which will fit in nicely with this plan.
A draft of the new HUD rule anticipates more than 350,000 Section 8 voucher holders will initially be resettled under the SAFMR program. Under Obama, the total number of voucher households has grown to more than 2.2 million.
Bill Clinton had a similar plan that bombed for 15 years.
Dubuque, Iowa, for example, received an influx of voucher holders from projects in Chicago — and it’s had a problem with crime ever since. A recent study linked Dubuque’s crime wave directly to Section 8 housing.
Now Dallas has one of the highest murder rates in the nation because of it, and recently had to call in state troopers to help police control it. For the first time, violent crime has shifted to the tony bedroom communities north of the city. Three suburbs that have seen the most Section 8 transfers — Frisco, Plano and McKinney — have suffered unprecedented spikes in rapes, assaults and break-ins, including home invasions.
By now, you’ve likely heard about Obama’s planned social engineering experiment via a housing ‘rule’, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing”, which is to be implemented by HUD.
He ordered the mapping of every neighborhood in the country and plans to force villages, towns, cities to take in a high percentage of Section 8 tenants if these locales take any Federal funding, which they will forfeit if they don’t abide by his rule.
You can read about his action, which is clearly totalitarian, on this link. It is a plan to integrate every suburb with the poor, minorities – especially illegal immigrants and refugees, and criminals.
Obama and his minions have long believed that suburbs are stealing the wealth from the cities.
Stanley Kurtz of National Review Online penned an article back in August, 2012 titled Burn Down the Suburbs? In it, he wrote about Obama and his community organizer mentors who hold the view that the cities suffer because of taxpayer “flight” to the suburbs.
Obama lived that belief as a community organizer. He channeled large sums of money from left-wing Chicago foundations where he served on the Board of Directors to anti-suburban activism.
He allied with one of his original trainers, Mike Kruglik, who has an organization called Building One America. It’s the anti-suburban crusade on steroids. They work with the Obama administration.
Kruglik and his colleagues in the movement have met with Obama in the White House. They literally plan to burn down the suburbs.
The suburbs could easily become the neo-slums complete with crime and poverty. It does undermine the minorities currently living in suburbs who fled the liberal cities that have been crushed under the weight of decades of corruption and bad policies.
Politically, Democrats have become less competitive in the suburbs so they’ve taken the next step.
LaRaza and other far-left groups strongly backed the rule which will likely end up forcing towns and cities to accept illegal immigrants among other “protected” classes of people.
Social engineering doesn’t work and the way they are doing it is far beyond simple socialism.
This is in line with Agenda 21, now known as the 2030 sustainable development agenda. Read about what they are doing on Long Island as one example on this link. Long Island, for those who don’t know, is the epitome of the tony suburb and it is the mostly Republican region outside of New York City, which is now run by a communist.
