A couple bought a $2 million home in New York but discovered a squatter living inside after taking possession.

Under New York law, squatters gain rights after 30 days.

“We’ve kind of lost our minds,” Carson said. “Squatter’s rights? You’ve got to be kidding me. Squatters don’t have any rights. They have no right to be in your house. What are they going to have next? Trespasser’s rights? That makes no sense whatsoever.”

The squatter claims the previous owner granted permission.

Now the new owners must go through the long eviction process, costing them money in the meantime.

They question how someone without a lease or paying rent can have rights.

“Long story short, he is still there,” Susana Landa said.

“If you have no lease and you’re not paying rent, what is you right?” Joseph Landa said.

“I never would imagine we have no rights, no rights at all, nothing, zero,” Susana said.

Former HUD secretary Ben Carson criticized “squatter’s rights,” arguing they encourage lawlessness.

He warns failing to protect lawful citizens could undermine order and stability.

“If you’re not going to protect the law-abiding citizens, why should they be law-abiding citizens? You’re encouraging mass chaos and anarchy,” Carson said. “And it seems to me like somebody might be actually trying to do that, because the United States is very strong militarily, but we can certainly be destroyed from within.”
