The Department of Housing and Urban Development this week sent a 14-page letter condemning low-income housing procedures in the city of Houston, Texas, saying that they have violated the Civil Rights Act.

HUD said that the city was "blocking and deterring affordable housing proposals in integrated neighborhoods" and provided a list of corrective actions that they should pursue.
