“When Somin talks about “excluding people from opportunity,” he’s being disingenuous. He doesn’t mean “the opportunity,” he means “the right.” Everyone has the opportunity to live in my exclusive Beverly Hills neighborhood. Just earn the money, and buy in. People have the opportunity, but Somin thinks they should have a right. He just can’t phrase it that way, because his fellow legal scholars would laugh in his face. His “right to live in Beverly Hills” is as legit as some SJW coed’s assertion that there’s a “right” to not be offended.”

Immigrants gain cheap housing, and people like my parents lose the equity they worked so hard to earn.
