This keeps the wages way down, millions of people perfectly eager to accept far less than living wages, less than minimum wages, have many children and they easily are entitled to more government assistance than any American citizen.

Is this program equally available in Detroit, New York, and the rest of the USA, or is it geared toward cities with high immigrant populations only?
Here's a question you can find the answers to. What does the program entail and who qualifies?

Seems one would need to at least know these facts before one assumes anything else...

The article clearly said - illegals qualify for this free rent money.

Sure - because with all the homeless people in this country, it's a foolish policy to entice illegals to come over by providing them rent money.

We need to take care of our own before bringing in the entire impoverished populations of the world.

So why don't you explain why you believe people here in this country illegally should be given rent money from the government -- ie our tax dollars? Are you really going to insist there are no citizens that could use help?

The only answer you are going to get is "because the law says so". You won't be offered an "opinion" on the lunacy of that law.
