A state law in California is already doing this and Trump can't do anything about it. We have massive apartment buildings going up all over the place. The local municipalities have lost all control over zoning. Newsom is calling all the shots and his plan is to turn the whole state into a slum. That's the only way the illegal aliens can afford to live here.
The effect on existing suburban neighborhoods can be devastating. We don't have enough schools, roads, hospitals, etc. Just wait until the next drought and watch them ration water. It will happen.
And if Biden wants to open the border and make the entire United States a sanctuary country, he will need housing for the hundreds of millions of people he wants to come here and he will reinstate this regulation. This is coming to a suburb near you if Biden gets elected.

If the dam breaks, you will need to house even more Chinese.
[WashingtonExaminer] Brushing aside Democratic charges that federal agents are at fault in the Portland, Oregon, clashes, the No. 2 DHS official on Monday said that homegrown “terrorists” are to blame for the 53rd straight night of violence in the City of Roses.
Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli, describing brutal assaults on federal police and agents, ripped reports that the department and other agencies are acting outside the law.
“These are not peaceful protests. This is violent, criminal activity. And when they show up directed at law enforcement, it’s terrorism. Law enforcement officers and agents have been targeted in the attacks,” said Cuccinelli.
We are United in our effort to defeat the Invisible China Virus, and many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance. There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President.
Many different interpretations of that statement are possible. Pick yours, and pontificate!
Kacisch should just join the Dem Party and be done with it. They'd rather support incompetent doofus Joe Biden. John Kacich is a part of the Never-Trump contingency and has links with the Lincoln Project (formed by George Conway and others to get rid of Trump). They all want to dump Trump. Lincoln would turn over in his grave about his name being associated with the Lincoln Project.

[WASHINGTONTIMES] The nation’s largest state Republican Party has a new leader. Allen West was elected chairman of the Republican Party of Texas in the early hours of Monday during a virtual vote among the organization’s membership.The retired U.S. Army officer and former presidential hopeful has already taken on the responsibilities of the role and begin to "implement his strategy to hold Texas," according to his campaign — which means a return to traditional conservatism for Lone Star Republicans.
"I am honored and privileged that Republicans of Texas have selected me to Chair their party and to be at the helm during this coming election cycle. We need to focus on maintaining the conservative policies that made Texas strong and drive voter outreach across the state," Mr. West said in a statement.
The realignment of the political parties continues. Remember when the Democrats claimed to be the party of the common man, standing strong against the ruling class?
[Ay Pee via Cincinnati.com] In the four months since Joe Biden effectively won the Democratic presidential nomination, he has focused on consolidating the party's divergent and often warring factions. As the closing stretch of the campaign nears, that effort will expand to include Republicans disaffected with President Donald Trump. Plugs thinks this guy can help him ?
Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican Narcissistic RINO and frequent Trump critic, has been approached and is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Biden's behalf next month, according to a person with direct knowledge of the plans who insisted on anonymity to discuss strategy. Kasich is among a handful of high-profile Republicans likely to become more active in supporting Biden in the fall.
Trump, meanwhile, is doing virtually nothing to expand his appeal beyond his most loyal supporters. Some GOP operatives believe the suburbs are lost while a contingent of high-profile Republicans are openly questioning the president's reelection message. In an acknowledgment of the mounting challenges, Trump named a new campaign manager last week.
With about 100 days until Election Day, there's time for sudden developments that could shift the trajectory of the campaign. The Friday announcement that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's cancer has returned was a reminder of the potential volatility ahead. In 2016 Trump effectively used the prospect of Supreme Court appointments to win over conservatives who otherwise found him distasteful.
[PostMillennial] St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner
...one of the many recipients of the Soros-led Progressive district attorney placement project, for which they clearly chose the most like-minded instead of the brightest or cleverest....
filed the charges of unlawful use of a weapon/flourishing according to Channel 5 in St. Louis.
Channel 5 reports that the "unlawful use of a weapon charge is a class D felony and could result in one to four years in prison as well as fines up to $5,000" and that "Gardner's office will be issuing a summons for the couple to appear in court."
[PJMedia] Gardner simply never mentions the Second Amendment or the state’s Castle Doctrine, both of which are relevant.
Also relevant: The pistol Patricia McCloskey is seen holding in the video may not be real.
(Former McCloskey defense attorney Al) Watkins told reporters the pistol Patricia McCloskey used was only a prop from a federal trial that the couple used in a case. Both of them are attorneys.
A source familiar with the investigation told 5 On Your Side that police did not find any ammunition at the McCloskeys’ home and the rifle was not loaded when they seized it.
If it’s not a real gun, it’s no more weapon than a small club. If the rifle was never loaded, then the McCloskeys were bluffing the protesters at the most.
If one “gun” was a prop and the other wasn’t loaded, neither were capable of meeting the definition of flourishing as described in Missouri state law above. Neither was “readily capable of lethal use.”
UDPATE: Missouri’s Attorney General has moved to drop the charges, Fox News reports:
Within hours of the ruling, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a brief seeking to dismiss Gardner’s charges against the McCloskeys on the grounds that their Second Amendment rights are being violated.
“The right to keep and bear arms is given the highest level of protection in our constitution and our laws, including the Castle Doctrine, which provides broad rights to Missourians who are protecting their property and lives from those who wish to do them harm,” Schmitt said in a prepared statement provided to Fox News.
“Despite this, Circuit Attorney Gardner filed suit against the McCloskeys, who, according to published reports, were defending their property and safety. As Missouri’s Chief law enforcement officer, I won’t stand by while Missouri law is being ignored,” Schmitt said.
The pistol Patricia McCloskey is seen holding in the video may not be real.
Not a valid argument. Already established is that if anyone felt it was a 'gun' it was a gun by its consequences. How many real criminals have used replicas in hold ups and been prosecuted as though it was a real gun. Those criminals were not operating under the protection of the 2d Amendment of defending life and property.
State AG is already filing in court against the local DA on the grounds that this is a violation of their rights under the Missouri Constitution and the US 2nd Amendment. State AG wull be in court demanding dismissal, and possibly sanctions against the DA

FYI the local DA is a Soros funded DA implant.

Lawfare at work against the McCloskeys. The McCloskeys ought to counter sue St. Louis and Gardner for any number of issues. (Gardner's 2016 campaign was funded in large part by George Soros.)
I have seen it written that their handling of their firearms in that incident pretty clearly met the definition of brandishing, and thus 'improper use.' Elsewhere I have seen it written that, like warning shots, brandishing/threatening with a firearm implies the person was not in fear for their life, which is the legal hurdle for showing the firearm in some jurisdictions, so if you show it, shoot it to kill...
brandishing/threatening with a firearm implies the person was not in fear for their life
I have a hard time with this logic. Situations like this don't normally go from 0-100 instantly, and invoking a serious threat to the perps' health can make the situation go from 50-0 very quickly whereas otherwise the victims could very well end up dead. How many lives could have been saved over the years if brandishing were to have been allowed if they were actually being threatened?
