In Homeless-Plagued America, Why are Taxpayers Financing Second Homes for ILLEGALS?

The mainstream media are making a big fuss about the Department of Housing and Urban Development's plan to extend public housing subsidies solely to families with legal or citizenship status. The New York Times version of this was so biased and contemptuous of U.S. citizens that I refuse to link it, but here is the Washington Post's less slanted version:
Undocumented immigrants [sic] may no longer sign the leases of subsidized housing, even if their children are entitled to prorated benefits.
Approximately 25,000 households, representing about 108,000 people, now living in subsidized housing have at least one ineligible member, according to the HUD analysis.
Among these mixed-status households, 70 percent, or 76,000 people, are legally eligible for benefits — of whom 55,000 are children, HUD says. The vast majority live in California, Texas and New York.
The press is framing this as a heartless-to-children issue, but the problem is one of priorities in how federal resources are used. Should illegal parents get benefits because of their 55,000 kids when the homeless citizen parents of another 55,000 homeless children are left to huddle in the cold? Or even more pointedly, should illegal aliens who are financing second households back home be entitled to housing assistance here even as citizens don't get it? Second homes aren't exactly the purpose of a government program intended to help the impoverished.
