Illegal aliens now eligible for NYC’s affordable housing lotteries

According to the Coalition for the Homeless, “homelessness in New York City has reached the highest levels since the Great Depression.”

From their stats: “In June 2019, there were 60,849 homeless people, including 14,589 homeless families with 21,295 homeless children, sleeping each night in the New York City municipal shelter system. Families make up nearly three-quarters of the homeless shelter population.”

Another demorat-run city putting the needs of illegal aliens above those of their own U.S. citizens.

From NY Post: Illegal immigrants aliens will be able to jump into New York City’s highly competitive lotteries for affordable housing as part of broader rules changes announced by City Hall on Wednesday meant to expand eligibility.

The new rules will allow applicants to provide proof they pay their rent on time instead of submitting for a formal credit check, which required prospective tenants to put down their Social Security or taxpayer identification numbers — documents only provided to citizens and naturalized citizens.

“For too long, families without access to credit have faced barriers to the affordable housing they need,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio in a statement. “By allowing New Yorkers to submit rental history instead of credit checks, we are creating a fairer system for all New Yorkers.”

Under the new rules, tenants can bypass the credit check requirement by providing evidence they are current on a year’s worth of rent.

Officials defended the rule change by claiming that credit check requirements often adversely impact African American and Latino applicants — but acknowledged the change also would allow undocumented immigrants illegal aliens to apply.

“These new changes are a step towards promoting greater racial equity in our housing market and greater access to affordable housing, regardless of immigration status,” said Bitta Mostofi, who runs the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs.

A top de Blasio critic on the City Council quickly slammed the idea. “It’s just the latest idiotic idea to come out of this administration,” said Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Queens). “The mayor is setting up people to fail and is doing a disservice to New Yorkers who desperately need affordable housing.”

Additionally, the city’s housing agencies are dropping the charges for a credit check to $20 to comply with the state’s new rent laws. And City Hall is loosening the rules on household size to allow more people to cram into smaller apartments.

“By addressing the challenges many low-income New Yorkers face in the rental application process, we are creating more options for those in need of an affordable home,” said Eric Enderlin, president of the city’s Housing Development Corp.

That pic of DeBlasio is so spot on. Why do New Yorkers put up with the POS?

I would say you’ve gotta be kidding me, but I know you wouldn’t kid about a thing like that. The only way I can explain the government of New York is election fraud.

Ah, but what’s in a name? “Bill DeBlasio’s” real name is Warren Wilhelm Jr. “Barack Obama’s” is Barry Soetero. Reminds me of what crappy garage bands used to do – change their name after bombing at a particular venue so the venue wouldn’t realize who they were the next time around. End result? SSDD, same as with these two political jokers.

I have been renting a great room in a great boarding house in Long Island City for eleven years now, and this really grinds my gears. The new landlord wants the remaining three of us out so he can gut the house, convert it back to a two-family unit and make his million dollars. Deblasio is a real con-artist, and he’s as dumb as they come. Where the he’ll are we going to go? Carlos is very sick, Ray is putting his daughter through college, and I’m trying to tread water. But that’s O.K.: WE have to give up our… Read more »

Illinois’ illegal aliens are better off than the ones in New York.

It’s now illegal to evict illegal invaders based on citizenship:

Never mind if a landlord wants to evict because tenants haven’t paid rent. All the illegal aliens have to do is lawyer up (through free legal services provided by fellow communists) & claim that they’re being evicted because of their citizenship.
