Donald Trump May End Obama Attack on Suburbia via Activist Housing Rules
The AFFH rule, proposed in 2015 when he was Obama’s secretary of Housing and Urban Development, was met with stiff resistance the moment it was unveiled.
National Review’s Stanley Kurtz was shocked by the rule and called it "massive government overreach.” He added that it:
gives the federal government a lever to re-engineer nearly every American neighborhood — imposing a preferred racial and ethnic composition, densifying housing, transportation, and business development in suburb and city alike, and weakening or casting aside the authority of local governments over core responsibilities, from zoning to transportation to education.
Kurtz continued saying that the rule would give the federal government the power to force racial quotas on every community in America.
"AFFH obligates any local jurisdiction that receives HUD funding to conduct a detailed analysis of its housing occupancy by race, ethnicity, national origin, English proficiency, and class (among other categories),” he wrote, adding:
Grantees must identify factors (such as zoning laws, public-housing admissions criteria, and "lack of regional collaboration”) that account for any imbalance in living patterns. Localities must also list "community assets” (such as quality schools, transportation hubs, parks, and jobs) and explain any disparities in access to such assets by race, ethnicity, national origin, English proficiency, class, and more. Localities must then develop a plan to remedy these imbalances, subject to approval by HUD.
By using its power to approve banking and funding, the federal government would necessarily have the ability to tell suburban areas who will be allowed to live in their neighborhoods and what kind of homes they can build to force immigrant and low income residents into every neighborhood. In the end, the rule would destroy wealth and lower property values.A word from Tim:
Good news! I imagine the courts will try to stop him, though.
BTW I argued at the time that this is intended to overturn the power of redistricting.
Republicans had taken control of so many statehouses and governorships that they could redistrict in a way that made it impossible for Democrats to get elected. So Obama decided if Muhammad won't go to the mountain then the mountain would go to Muhammad, and he hatched up this scheme to colonize Republican districts. Cute trick.

He'd better get this done before the election! Biden's insisting that he will do the opposite, of course.

At least we have to hope he does it while he can. It was not just a bad policy but in my opinion a clearly unconstitutional one.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.
The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.
