Obama to Force Communities to End “Segregation”!
If the Department of Housing and Urban Development is allowed to implement a new
regulation, the federal government could have unprecedented power over local
zoning laws. At issue is the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing regulation,
which aims to force municipalities to take drastic action to make sure American
communities are properly integrated according to race. Critics say it’s a
last-ditch, overriding effort to create an “unrealistic utopia.” Using the
carrot of grant money, the regulation would “encourage” communities to build
HUD housing in more expensive areas, upgrade transportation and schools in
low-income neighborhoods, and “break down barriers to access to opportunity in
communities supported by HUD funds.” Not surprisingly, conservatives are wary.
Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona said the Obama administration “shouldn’t be holding
hostage grant monies aimed at community improvement based on its unrealistic
utopian ideas of what every community should resemble.” He argued that American
citizens deserved to retain the right to choose where they wanted to live.
Proponents of the rule say that the plan is needed to give better opportunities
to people in poverty. Debby Goldberg of the National Fair Housing Alliance said
it addressed our “history of putting affordable housing in poor communities.”
