1,300 Criminal Fugitives Live in Government-Subsidized Housing in Just One HUD Region

More evidence suggests that the federal government represents criminals and lowlifes more than the hard-working, law-abiding regular Americans who are forced to fund it:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley thinks it’s time for a federal watchdog to cough up some answers about a disturbing report it withheld from Congress and taxpayers on an estimated 1,300 wanted criminal fugitives living in subsidized public housing.

The Iowa Republican also wants to know why the Department of Housing and Urban Development apparently isn’t enforcing the law against criminals living in federally subsidized housing.

The 1,300 are apparently only the tip of an iceberg:

There are also still questions about the scope of the problem because the 1,300 fugitives were found in just one HUD region. The unpublished IG document was categorized as a “systemic implications report,” which means there’s a concern that there may be more runaway felons living in federally-funded houses nationwide.

Hard as it may be to believe, there was once a time when the government would catch fugitive felons and put them in prison, rather than provide them with subsidized housing at our expense.
