Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson announced plans to evict illegal immigrants from HUD housing in an effort to free up housing space, and leftists are complaining that the real problem is there is simply not enough housing available.
Last week, Carson revealed his plan to free up HUD housing for low income families by evicting illegal immigrants. While this would logically create more space for American citizens in the public housing, Buzzfeed appears convinced that the real problem is that there is simply not enough housing available for both citizens and illegal immigrants.
Politico reports that HUD is already prohibited from giving housing to illegal immigrants, but a “legal loophole” has allowed individuals to attain public housing without having their immigration status checked. Carson’s plan would end this loophole, making the housing strictly for those who can prove their United States citizenship.
Last week, Carson posted to Twitter that “we are putting America’s most vulnerable first,” and noted that “hundreds of thousands of citizens are waiting many years on waitlists to get housing assistance.”

In an article posted last week, Buzzfeed seemed to lament that the real cause of the crisis is not enough housing, while failing to note the mathematical certainty that freeing up housing by evicting those who are not even legally residing in the United States would, by default, create more room for American citizens in need.
According to individuals cited by Buzzfeed, “HUD’s new proposal is trying to address a problem that doesn’t exist when it comes to undocumented immigrants, while at the same time failing to address the very real public housing shortage.”
The Buzzfeed article then denies reality again by claiming that “all applicants must be US citizens or documented residents and go through an immigration screening process,” even though the aforementioned loophole allows illegal immigrants to attain housing without proving their citizenship.
Buzzfeed concludes its article with more fear mongering about “ripping families apart,” in cases where residents are living in public housing alongside illegal immigrants.
This would appear to be Buzzfeed’s latest example of denying reality. It is undeniable that removing illegal immigrants from housing that is already reserved for American citizens would create more room for those the program is meant to serve.
HOAX: Police Report Alleges Texas A&M Student Faked Racist Letters on Car Dashboard
The suspected hoaxster stopped cooperating with police after being confronted with video evidence.
Texas A&M University police are describing an incident in which a black student claimed racist and anti-Black Lives Matter messages were left on his car windshield as a hate hoax, after investigating Isaih Martin’s claims that he was targeted with the messages.
Martin had claimed that three pieces of paper stating “All Lives Matter,” “You Don’t Belong Here,” and a racial slur were placed on his car windshield when his vehicle was placed in the parking lot of an on-campus apartments. His claims elicited an outpouring of sympathy from the university community, with Texas A&M’s official Twitter even consoling the supposed victim without waiting for any verification of his dubious claims.
However, shortly after police began investigating the incident, Martin’s claim began to unravel. The Texas A&M University police obtained footage from a pool camera revealing that while a few individuals walked within several yards of his car, none of them stopped at the vehicle long enough to place the three piece of paper under the windshield wipers. Instead, Martin was the only individual who interacted with the vehicle long enough to place the notes.
“Martin immediately walks to the passenger side of his vehicle, but does not open any doors. Martin is seen toward the front of his vehicle. A brief white speck is seen from about mid-torso of Martin moving toward his vehicle. Another white speck is seen near his chest area. Martin is then seen stepping back and onto the sidewalk in front of his vehicle, most likely taking photos and videos. He then approaches his vehicle again on the passenger side and remains there for a few moments. He is then seen walking around the front of his vehicle. Martin then enters the driver`s door and drives away a few moments later. The total time spent at his vehicle is 1 minute, 15 seconds.”
An investigating officer accused Martin of placing the notes on his windshield himself, confronting him with video evidence revealing that he was the only person close enough to his vehicle to place them there. Martin stopped cooperating with police on the investigation shortly after an officer confronted him on the video footage. The university senior won’t be charged because he didn’t file a formal police report on the matter.
Martin made his Twitter account private in the hours after the police report became public knowledge.
