so an immigrant family, with a job in NoVa, is supposed to move to a high crime area in EOTR DC, and accept a long commute (either very long via transit, or fairly long in a cheap auto that they can barely afford given the wear and tear the long commute imposes). A high crime area with substandard schools no less.

To a certain extent, yes. The notion that a person or family is entitled to live in a neighborhood that is close to jobs, in a good school district, etc. is very odd. Money provides choices. Lack of money decreases those choices. It isn't the government's responsibility to maximize convenience for everyone.
