    In homeless-plagued America, why are taxpayers financing second homes for illegals?

    In homeless-plagued America, why are taxpayers financing second homes for illegals?

    Most remittance-sending illegal immigrants already have homes - in their homelands.

    The mainstream media is making a big fuss about the Department of Housing and Urban Development's plan to extend public housing subsidies solely to families with legal or citizenship status. The New York Times version of this was so biased and contemptuous of U.S. citizens that I refuse to link it but here is the Washington Post's less-slanted version:
    Undocumented immigrants may no longer sign the leases of subsidized housing, even if their children are entitled to prorated benefits.
    Approximately 25,000 households, representing about 108,000 people, now living in subsidized housing have at least one ineligible member, according to the HUD analysis.
    Among these mixed-status households, 70 percent, or 76,000 people, are legally eligible for benefits — of whom 55,000 are children, HUD says. The vast majority live in California, Texas and New York.
    The press is framing this as a heartless-to-children issue, but the problem is one of priorities in how federal resources are used. Should illegal parents get benefits because of their 55,000 kids when the homeless citizen parents of another 55,000 homeless children are left to huddle in the cold? Or even more pointedly, should illegal immigrants who are financing second households back home be entitled to housing assistance here even as citizens don't get it? Second homes aren't exactly the purpose of a government program intended to help the impoverished.
    A look at the U.S. homeless figures from the National Alliance to End Homelessness pretty well provides the perspective that the press has ignored:
    Figures in the NGO group's linked chart for 2018 shows that there are 552,830 people who are homeless in America today. Of that total, 180,413 are identified as "people in families" and another 36,361 are identified as 'youth,' presumaby runaways and throwaways. So pretty close to half of the homeless population would qualify for that same housing subsidization illegals are getting and they can't get it. How many is that? 240,000 or so, or twenty percent of homelessness population. So with a base figure of 55,000 (it would be more if the illegal parents are included - we can assume one illegal parent per child), it means about 20% to 40% of the U.S. homeless population could be helped if the illegal immigrant population were sent back home. That would presume the homeless population is entirely composed of citizens - and based on the chart by approximation, it likely is - half the homeless population is white, and 40% of it is black. The Asian homeless population is near zero, and the Latino population, which would likely include a certain number of illegal immigrants in an approximation, is just slightly overrepresented at 22%. Here's another thing: Only about a fifth of the homeless population is classified as 'chronically homeless' which is a population which is very difficult to help. It appear that 80% of the homeless population could be helped by housing subsidies. Well, they can't get them.
    Conclusion - Americans are being shut out, particularly African-Americans, who are grossly overrepresented at 40% of the homeless population.
    What's shocking, however, is that the housing subsidies are actually the federal financing of second homes for illegal immigrants. They already have homes - in their homelands. The housing they are getting here is for their second homes.
    How can we infer that? For starters, because of the remittances. Remittances are now approaching a quarter of Central America's GDP and top several billion dollars annually. They are used to finance remaining family members back home. Home? Yes, these illegal immigrants have homes - very few pull up stakes entirely and place all of their eggs in the 'America' basket given that illegal immigration means the prospect of potential deportation. Legal immigrants often do it, but why would anyone do that as an illegal one? Unlike, say the average North Korean claiming asylum who has fled for his life and cut all ties to his homeland forever - these incoming migrants are coming here as a means to earn money to support households back in their home countries and they intend to fly back and forth to them, which rather makes mockery of the idea of 'asylum.' How can anyone who's supposedly full of 'credible fear of persecution' want to return to the scene of the supposed crime and bankroll it with remittances? According to the Wall Street Journal, a quarter of Honduran households get these remittances, and more than half the Honduran population in the U.S. is here illegally. And that's just one country - the dynamic is repeated all through the region and beyond.
    Illegal migrants don't abandon their homes to get to the U.S, they hold two homes - almost comparable to Bernie Sanders, who's all in for having at least a couple of homes - and that's fine and dandy, except that we return to the problem of allocation of resources.
    This is, after all, going on in an era of record blue-city homelessness. Those impoverished from it, cast out of housing by the Democrat-green-NIMBY industrial complex, continue to grow in numbers.
    Which brings us back to the Cher Axiom:

    THEY ARE LIARS, SCAMMERS AND CHEATERS!

    GET THEM OFF OUR SOIL AND THEIR OFFSPRING.

    They come here with 3 or more kids and left 4 more behind with the grandparents. Their uncontrollable overbreeding is NOT our responsibility to pay for!

    They rip us off and then send billions back over the border...get 'em out!

    They grow up in a culture of lying, cheating, and stealing to survive. We do not want that here! Then they come here and continue to do the same.

    It is not cheap to live here. We cannot afford our own rent, bills and healthcare!

    Cut the free stuff off and make them self deport.

    They destroyed their own countries, they are bankrupting and destroying ours.

    Go home and work to build America on you soil.

    Terminate and defund the Refugee, Asylum, TPS, and illegal alien SCAM programs and stop forcing us to pay for and suffer the consequences of it.

    This is all a front to Launder Money; the Homeless Americans that were displaced by Illegal Aliens are just the excuse for money to come up missing

    DESPICABLE !!

    LA officials bracing for release of report that’s likely to show LITTLE or NO progress in reining in homelessness, despite the $619 million spent last year to grapple with the crisis.

    L.A. spent $619 million on homelessness last year. Has it made a difference?
