Taking on Class and Racial Discrimination in Housing

Oning laws are not usually the stuff of which presidential campaigns are made. But Senator Cory A. Booker, who is often talked about as a presidential contender, says bad zoning laws are making housing more segregated and less affordable, and he has just introduced legislation to do something about it. 

Booker was born in Washington, D.C., one year after the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act. That legislation, which outlawed racial discrimination in the sale and rental of housing, helped make it possible for Booker’s parents, African American executives, to become the first black family to reside in Harrington Park, New Jersey, an affluent white community outside of Newark with strong public schools. Those schools helped launch Booker to Stanford, Oxford, Yale Law and beyond.

But as a child Booker quickly became aware that a single law couldn’t wipe out entrenched inequalities of housing opportunity.

No. 1: By 2025 Hawaii will need approximately 22,000 affordable rentals. The state planned on using bonds to borrow $2 billion to get to that goal. Federal funding would be needed to build affordable rentals but the problem is that the Trump administration omitted affordable housing in its infrastructure plan and sought to take deep cuts to federal housing programs. Local government needs to revisit current regulations as well as give tax incentives for people offering up a second home or extensions for rentals. We are in a housing emergency situation and this issue needs to be treated as such.

No. 2: I would definitely take a look at alternate routes. I’m a firm believer in my motto, “Building our future through partnerships and cooperation.” We need to seriously sit down with private landowners and the state and look at what incentives we can work out to the benefit of all to build alternate routes to pull traffic off of state highways. We need to form partnerships and see what we can collaboratively do. There will need to be regulations set to minimize impact to surrounding land and resources but this would be a great solution to alleviate traffic.

Are you in agreement with this NM Native American tribe We have right to ask immigration status?

A Native American tribe in New Mexico says it has the right to ask residents of a tribal-owned mobile home community for proof of U.S. citizenship and proper immigration documentation.

It's their land.
They followed their own procedures/policies & arrived at a decision.
I fully agree it's none of my business.
