Why you shouldn’t hate fair housing law,the good,fair,fairness
I have a few things to say about the Fair Housing Act.
First, it is one of the most progressive and important laws in America, one that has been in place since the late 1970s.
I am happy to support it because it is good for the country.
Second, it has been adopted by more than 20 states and the District of Columbia, which means that it is widely seen as a model of fair housing and fair treatment for all.
It is also the only federal law that protects people with disabilities from discrimination.
In 2016, a coalition of states and cities sued to overturn the law.
But now, more than a decade later, that coalition is facing a legal challenge from the Trump administration.
The president is calling the lawsuit “ridiculous” and “misguided” and is demanding that the case be dismissed.
In a statement, the Justice Department said the Trump Justice Department will defend the law, which protects people like me, the disabled and the elderly from discrimination, and that it will defend fair housing protections.
The administration is making clear that this lawsuit is not about “fair housing.”
The Justice Department says that the government does not support the law and that its protections have been upheld by the courts.
But what about the lawsuit against Fair Housing?
What about people like us, the people who have to go to court to make sure that we get the fair treatment that we deserve?
This is the case I am most concerned about.
I have two brothers, both with physical disabilities, who live in a very difficult part of the country and who need the same kind of protection from discrimination that everyone else has.
I have been hearing about this case for years, but I was not involved in the litigation until this past week, when a judge from a state court in Indiana ruled that the Fair Employment and Housing Act is unconstitutional and that the Trump Administration has no right to take away protections from the disabled.
If the Trump Department of Justice and the Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney General Mike McCord win the case, it would be a victory for the disabled in America and for fair housing in America.
But it would also be a significant setback for a law that has protected them from discrimination for decades.
That is why I have joined the other 19 members of Congress who have signed onto a resolution calling on the Trump DOJ to defend the Fairness Act, including Representatives Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Zoe Lofgren, the Ranking Member of the Committee on the Judiciary.
We are all Americans.
We are all entitled to the protections of the law that protect us from discrimination in housing, in jobs, in education, in health care, and in public accommodations.
And we are all also entitled to a fair shot to succeed.
I think the American people are going to be very, very concerned about what is going to happen with the Fair Enforcement Act, which will be filed with the Supreme Court on February 5.
That law is a significant victory for all Americans who deserve equal protections in the workplace, in the health care system, in employment and in the education system.
It has also created a pathway for us to move forward with the inclusion of more people with mental illness and other disabilities in our communities, in our public housing and in our social services.
I hope the Trump Office of Legal Counsel will consider the concerns that we have raised in this case and will respond in writing to us.
That should happen by the end of this week.
The Fair Employment Act also protects people in rural areas from discrimination and allows communities to set up their own fair housing rules.
But the Trump government has already made clear that it does not believe in this protection for rural areas, including by requiring states to adopt their own rules.
So what is the plan for rural America?
We have been trying to help our rural communities in Indiana and Wisconsin, in places like Wisconsin, to set their own laws that are consistent with the federal Fair Employment law, to protect them from unfair discrimination and to protect people with physical and mental disabilities from unfair treatment.
But those rural communities are often small and they are often rural and are not representative of our country as a whole.
They are very vulnerable to economic downturns, and there are lots of people who cannot afford health insurance.
In fact, in Wisconsin, a group of lawmakers recently proposed a bill that would give people in those areas a special tax credit to purchase health insurance for people with intellectual and physical disabilities.
So there is no question that the protections under the Fair Fair Employment, Housing and Education Act, and the protections in this law, are important for rural Americans.
But this is a very special moment for rural people and for our country.
As you may know, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the federal law against credit reporting agencies, requires them to verify information that people submit to them to make credit reports and that they can’t just rely on what
