senate Bill S. 1929

Should ‘Dreamers’ Be Eligible for Federally-Backed Mortgages?

Argument in favor

Dreamers’ eligibility for FHA-backed mortgages has allowed many young people to buy homes and secure their economic futures. HUD’s recent decision to end Dreamers’ eligibility for FHA-backed mortgages has no legal basis and is an extension of the Trump administration’s persecution of Dreamers.

HUD started this “rule” recently for the sole purpose of persecution. It has no legal reasoning. Non-citizens regularly buy property with federally backed mortgages. Almost 70 BILLION DOLLARS worth EVERY YEAR. Not corporations. Just people buying houses. So, yeah, there’s that. PS. The 100 largest private landowners in the USA own ~ 40 MILLION acres. A area the size of Florida. The top 10 individuals collectively control a area the size of West Virginia. So when y’all say there is “no room” for immigrants I say F you. The thing the USA has in abundance is SPACE.

Unfortunately the less informed conservative republican types don’t realize that dreamers are already paying taxes and paying into the system. So if they are paying on a mortgage they in essence will be paying interest on the amount they borrowed and paying property taxes each year just like......here it comes.....wait for it...,CITIZENS!!!!

Argument opposed

Non-U.S. citizens without lawful residency’s ineligibility for FHA has been published policy since at least October 2003. While it was the Obama administration’s policy for HUD to guarantee FHA-backed mortgages for Dreamers, the Trump administration isn’t required to extend this policy (and is within its rights to decide against it).

Short and sweet…NO. The government needs to remove itself from being a mortgage lender. These big-government lenders have failed from the beginning. Remove the taxpayer from the mortgage business. Can't giveaway mortgage money if you don't have it.

    FHA loans help the country’s people secure housing, broaden the tax base and helps communities thrive. They are secured and only given to risk-qualified people. Why should anyone who has been a long term resident, works hard and pays their taxes, has steady employment and led a felony free life be denied? Why should Dreamers, who serve in our military, lived most of their live’s here be treated any differently? I cannot understand why anyone would want to penalize these folks instead of welcoming them to the ranks of citizenship. They have earned it. Their payment of taxes helps support the government entitlements expected by our White Nationalists. Their steady support of taxes and commitment to military service protects us all and, with declining birth rates, they add to the tax-base needed to support are huge and growing national debt. The dismissal of these folks appears to by solely inflamed by trump as an emotional core strategy to consolidate his base. This whole business would not even be an issue of national interest if trump hadn’t used it as a political tool.

    I believe that these people should be eligible for Federally backed mortgages. They will have to qualify for the mortgage like anyone would.

    Why are these people getting special privileges? If congress can’t read Constitution, where it says laws can only be passed for general welfare, same for all, no special segments of the citizens, then maybe we need a law that before taking office every politician should pass same test new Americans must take!

    Just when you think that politicians can’t do anything worse to us, they attempt to put us on the hook for more people’s mortgages! What ever happened to personal responsibility? Politicians who rob Peter to pay Paul, can always count on the vote of Paul.

    This is ridiculous. If the Democrats want them to be treated like everyone else, then my suggestion is to stop singling them out for special privileges over and above: 1. Citizens 2. Citizen Veterans Democrats- take care of our people first!!

    Of course they should be eligible if they qualify. The danger the Mr.Trump is always trying to expel them from the the only country they have known all their life, and have contributed to, says more about what we put up with in leadership. Dreamers are driven, educated, and many served in the armed services for a country that seems to despise them. Sounds like African Americans.

    Dreamers have already been paying taxes into the system. So if they are paying on a mortgage they will be paying interest on the amount they borrowed and paying property taxes each year just like “ REAL CITIZENS!!!!” Besides companies from other countries who don’t plan in becoming “citizens “ buy land here, why shouldn’t a Dreamer be able to buy land.

    I went to school with “Dreamers” THAT DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THEY WEREN’T born here. One found out while applying for Medical School! The ones that did know just figured it would work out. They are as American as I am. They Love this country, pay taxes. Serve in the military. I recently heard about a 20 year old, busted for dealing a small amount of MARIJUANA WHO DOESN’T EVEN SPEAK FLUENT SPANISH sent back to Columbia. Is THIS JUSTICE? Of course DACA DREAMERS should be allowed to buy houses and get student loans AND BE GIVEN THE PATH TO CITIZENSHIP! The only reason I’m here is with the grace of the Universe! The same can be said for many. The turn of the Century motto was “No Irish NEED APPLY”. This went on for years as the Irish fled starvation and protection. The difference is THERE SKIN WAS WHITE. Easier to blend. If you think this is not racism you are ignorant. Or worse WILLFULLY DISGUSTING. I am so sick of this campaign of attacks on immigrants. I am so sick of tRump and his greedy, corrupt sycophants. Once again I will remind you of shameful acts by the American government in the past. Starting with Native Americans. Continuing with slavery. Continuing with Japanese Americans being jailed. Continuing with the ship of Jews that were sent back to death in 1940. This is the worst of us. History will not view tRump and his followers well. I choose the AMERICAN WAY! My America where my ancestors came for religious freedom, Refugees of starvation and persecution. Give me a few minutes and I’ll start singing “God Bless America” because I learned every word ALONG WITH MY DREAMER FRIENDS.

    Why not. If you have the required income you qualify. The federal backing is just us protecting us. I thought that was what the government was, us doing for us. Not us enriching some but helping and protecting all of us as one people. Let’s stop the us against them. We are all in this together.

    No. They came here illegally. We have plenty of American citizens who can use federally backed mortgages. I’m a registered independent and democrats always piss me off before elections with the pandering to illegal aliens. Now modt of the Democratic candidates want to give them free Medicare for life and the big zero candidate Julio Castro who is a member of the hate group La Raza pressing others to decriminalize illegal border crossings. I’d much rather be called a racist by Zerlina Maxwell and vote for Donald. Because on her Sirius xm program that is what she proudly and loudly professed. I’ve never enough lard a racist in my life but will wear it asa badge of honor if all I have to do is vote for trump to earn that label. Republicans in politics are mostly all scumbags. But some of these democrats really know how to turn off voters during election time. people didn’t vote for democrats in 2018 to for social justice agitators to give everything to illegals, or to prop up their anti white hate groups and self loathing liberals to pity their causes. It was for a check on the president. In fact the way democrats have run this congress and let the trump administration make a mockery out of congressional subpoenas and hearings. Republicans would have used the Sergeant at arms and the monetary fine. It’s a shame I can’t be part of a party that aligns most of my values. My examples why is why I am an independent who would rather vote for scumbag republicans than a party focused on welcoming illegals, giving them all I couldn’t ever afford, daily Caucasian bashing with their white guilt, and the winning 2020 issue of reparations and candidates like Corey Booker who’s Iowa strategy was to tell Iowans America is a racist country and you should be ashamed of being white. I’m dam proud to be who I am. Maybe Corey isn’t because he doesn’t know who he is and is confused because he hates white males and angry he is half white. . I see my senator, senator menedez face next to this bill. Is this one of his dumb ass ideas. Democrats always know how to piss off independents around election time with their ridiculous and unpopular legislation. I’m a lawful citizen and I can’t get no federally backed mortgage.
