Limbaugh is right about Obama's war on suburbs (Placing illegals in selected re-drawn neighborhoods)
The Woodlands Villager ^ | July 20, 2014 | Robert Romano

Posted on 07/20/2014 5:41:35 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

“What better way to give a boost to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act and the remaking of American neighborhoods than to start injecting illegal immigrant populations into targeted cities and towns in the suburbs all across the country?“

That was national radio talk show superhost Rush Limbaugh commenting on a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.”

“The concept, as it is properly understood, is to change the enforcement paradigm in order to allow the Department of Housing and Urban Development to essentially decide what every neighborhood in America should look like,” Limbaugh explained.

Limbaugh is right.

Under the regulation, in October the Obama administration will be empowered to condition eligibility for community development block grants on redrawing zoning maps to create evenly distributed neighborhoods based on racial composition and income.

In 2012, HUD dispersed about $3.8 billion of these grants to almost 1,200 municipalities.

And, apparently, if the National Council of La Raza is to be believed, the new rule will help millions of illegal immigrants resettle in communities across the U.S. According to La Raza’s comment in favor of the regulation, “Hispanic families often do not know their housing rights and have cited fear of deportation as reason for not reporting rights violations.”

In the meantime, a trial run for implementing the rulemaking has already begun in Westchester County, N.Y., Limbaugh noted.

“You people in Westchester County in New York know exactly what I’m talking about because there is a huge lawsuit going on right now over just this,” the host said.

Again, Limbaugh is right.

In Westchester, HUD has attempted to rezone the area along racial and income guidelines as a condition for receiving millions in the block grants.

County Executive Rob Astorino, a Republican, is fighting back, however, and rejected the receipt of $5 million of grants from 2012.

Westchester lost out on some $7 million of grants from 2011 for the same reason.

“It is unfortunate that HUD, which claims to champion the needy, once again is threatening to withhold funds for affordable housing,” said Astorino spokesman Ned McCormack in April. “But the county is not going to turn over control of the local zoning of its six cities, 19 towns and 20 villages to bureaucrats in Washington for $5 million in grants.”

HUD has been demanding that the county build 750 units of affordable housing in 31 more affluent communities.

Now, Astorino, who is running for governor this year against Andrew Cuomo, is challenging in federal court the legal basis under which HUD can do this.

At a July 13 town hall meeting, Astorino reminded residents that when HUD brought its case against the county, “the deputy secretary of HUD said at the time Westchester is a test case for the rest of the country.”

Sure enough, in 2009, Ron Sims, deputy secretary at HUD, said, “We’re clearly messaging other jurisdictions across the country that there has been a significant change in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and we’re going to ask them to pursue similar goals as well,” adding that Westchester “can serve as a model for building strong, inclusive sustainable communities in suburban areas across the entire United States.”

Astorino explained the effect of the rule: “The federal government’s saying that if you live in a community that is disproportionately white, then therefore there is discrimination and segregation. And, as such, the local community and/or the Justice Department needs to come in and do away with a lot of the zoning regulations that they feel restricts high density housing in any neighborhood.”

Yikes. Can you say racial housing quotas?

But it gets worse than that. Astorino continued, “They have already said that quarter acre… single family residential zoning is potentially discriminatory, and what they would do is take away any restrictions that limit height, density, acreage, [and] number of bedrooms — in any community.”

Which means, Astorino said, “if you live in that quarter acre or half acre residential neighborhood, the federal government is saying that a 13-story apartment building could be right in the middle of it, government-subsidized, because there needs to be equal mix, in their view, of ethnicity, of race, of income, etc.”

With implementation of the HUD rule set to go into effect in October that means there is not a moment to lose. This is coming to a neighborhood near you.

The House of Representatives has already acted, passing an amendment to the Transportation and HUD appropriations bill by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz) in a close 219 to 207 vote to defund implementation of the regulation. In the Senate, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) has proposed the same amendment.

Yet so far, Senate Republicans have not presented a united front in favor of the Lee amendment and against the HUD action. They may want to do so before the rule is implemented in October. Once it is implemented, like so many eternal government programs, it may be too late to stop it.

I saw a map that had Hazleton, PA as one of the encampments. To me, that is a personal, vindictive dig at Barletta and the good people of that town. It seems everything this a**hole does has some sort of vengeance or payback attached to it.

Bring in the poor to affluent communities, and you will get a spike in crime. Something that those who have fled the cities left to get away from.

Bringing the FSA into primarily Republican districts, to turn these towns government over to the democRATS. This is an ethnic war against whites.

This has been the goal since the 1965 immigration act. Whites either wake up and unify or we will lose it all.

Barletta stopped it they are not coming. Hazleton is ruined with an influx of Dominicans for the last 10 years.

Having destroyed nearly every major city's downtown 40 years ago with "Urban Renewal", FedGov now is obviously deploying "Suburban Renewal" to destroy the suburbs.

I wish someone would stand up for Jupiter, FL. A once great little beach town is now ruined - and is a “sanctuary city” for Guatemalans. All so people can have more affordable lawn care.

Well, the new HUD Secretary, Julian Castro will be more than happy to implement this. In San Antonio, they go into nice neighborhoods (with conservative voters), and put up low income apartments.

Voila, crime rates rise, and voting patterns change.This has been going on for years in San Antonio.

I dunno. I heard Rush talk about this. The problem with certain NYC neighborhoods isn't race or income. The problem with certain NYC neighborhoods is culture.

Westchester Co. NY might end up with a mildly different racial or income makeup, but a massive cultural shift is less certain. (One effect is that the price of lawn services and maid services should come down in Westchester Co.)

Interestingly, the dark blue Northeastern states seem to have less neighborhood diversity than red states to begin with.

That's not to say that Obama doesn't hate the suburbs, and isn't waging a war on them, but like about 90% of what he's tried to do, this may well boomerang.

They’ve been doing the same thing with Section 8 housing for years. If a township is to Republican, just start importing Section 8 termites and before you know it! A Democrat district!

Global warming will also be invoked as a rationale for “modifying” (i.e., destroying) the suburbs for purposes of social engineering.

Is there a way of finding out where in our local community HUD is planning to erect these monstrosity projects?? After reading this article I'm worried HUD will force this monstrosity in our very nice neighborhood which has a huge empty lot that has been sitting there for many years. I heard from a neighbor of mine that HUD had considered that patch of land years ago but the community fought it and won. But situations have changed so much since then ...the govt will force the projects down our throat s whether we like it or not and there's nothing we can do. I need to know fast so that I can put my house on the market!

Yes. The liberals in the most liberal states cocoon themselves away from people different from themselves, all the while crowing about “diversity.”

The feds are forcing the suburb of Dayton OH (Beavercreek) where I live to accept Dayton RTA busses (and pay for the infrastructure to support them to boot).

City council finally approved the bus stops so as not to lose Federal Highway funds.

Where I live, money to house Section 8’s in wealthy neighborhoods were given to poor neighborhoods with very old housing stock. It’s another reason Asbury Park, NJ is still a mess despite gentrification.

Thanks for posting this article - I had only heard minimal info about it.

As a side note, Ron Sims is a former King County (Seattle and surrounding areas) Executive and was terrible (typical lib) - no wonder Obama appointed him.

According to Wikipedia, he resigned as Deputy Sec of HUD in 2011 due to wanting to “spend more time with his family”.

“Sims’ announcement followed the release of official travel records to Americans for Limited Government that showed Sims had spent 45 of 128 travel days during his tenure on trips to Seattle,[7] a statistic that the group said raised “questions about the legitimacy of these trips.” A HUD spokesperson denied the travel records indicated malfeasance on Sims’ part, noting that “every trip taken by Deputy Secretary Ron Sims was in response to a formal speech or forum participation request.”
