Panel: Federal Government Is Altering Suburban Demographics

Friday, 27 Jun 2014 05:43 PM

The federal government is on a mission to racially and economically alter the nation's suburbs and must be stopped, a Newsmax panel concludes.

"When the federal government starts to try to get involved in local zoning laws, that is just such an incredible violation of a principle of federalism,'' said Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV on Friday.

"This is part of the larger agenda of wealth redistribution. ... They want a level playing field even if it means everybody is poor.''

Turner's comments came during a panel discussion with Breitbart.com and American Thinker columnist C. Edmund Wright — moderated by Westchester County Executive and New York gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino.

Astorino, who is battling the Fair Housing Act's attempts to allegedly racially and economically "micro-engineer'' local communities in Westchester, was guest hosting "The Steve Malzberg Show.''

It is "micro-management from Washington for sure, and it is wealth redistribution, it's social engineering,'' Wright said.

"Obviously, HUD [Department of Housing and Urban Development] getting involved in local zoning is absurd.

"We've seen when the federal government gets involved in housing and they start putting out regulations on mortgages and everything else. It's a disaster and, of course, the same is going to happen here.''
