DOJ SEEKS TO ENSURE ILLEGAL ALIENS GET FEDERAL HOUSING

[Assistant Attorney General] Perez claims [Los Angeles County officials] discriminate against blacks and Latinos when it comes to providing federally-subsidized housing known as Section 8, even though 86% of the Section 8 recipients in both cities are minorities, according to the county commissioner Michael Antonovich who represents the area.
In a case that legal experts say defies logic and common sense, in order to ensure that low-income minorities get taxpayer-subsidized housing, Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched a nationwide discrimination probe that, ironically, is focusing on an area where the overwhelming number of public housing residents are Latino and black.
The investigations are being conducted by the DOJ’s bloated civil rights division, which is headed by renowned illegal immigration advocate Thomas Perez, who once served as president of a taxpayer-funded group (Casa de Maryland) dedicated to helping illegal aliens, according to a public-interest law firm.
A former Maryland Labor Secretary, Assistant Attorney General Perez has made a number of controversial moves at the DOJ to protect illegal immigrants and minorities in general. Most famous is his dismissal of charges against the New Black Panther Party who were “accused” of voter intimidation of whites.
