That article seems highly inaccurate; at least according to the sources that were provided. Example: They aren't withholding income, they are withholding welfare payments.
I don't have a problem with holding back 50% of welfare payments so that the recipient can prove they are using the money for necessities.
From what I briefly read, I think the program should be rolled back too. Not because it is racist, although it probably is, but because the only thing government welfare programs create are helpless individuals who require even more assistance.
