Carson on HUD eviction plan: 'You take care of your own first'
House lawmakers sparred Tuesday over a plan from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to remove thousands of immigrant families from federally subsidized homes.
In a heated hearing with HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Democratic members of the House Financial Services Committee blasted President Trump’s housing chief for what they called an inhumane and ineffective proposal to evict undocumented immigrants from federal housing.
“The ‘D’ in HUD does not stand for ‘deportation,’ ” said Rep.Carolyn Maloney(D-N.Y.). “We cannot create affordable housing for Americans by throwing other Americans out in the street with no place to go.”
