On May 10, 2019, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a proposed rule that would prohibit mixed status families from living in public housing and other HUD assisted housing. Mixed status families are households that include both members who are eligible and ineligible for housing assistance based on their immigration status.
This is yet another attack by the Trump administration to instill fear and uncertainty among immigrants throughout the country. We must work together to counter creation of this oppressive environment by making our voices heard that immigrants are welcome in our nation.
HUD’s proposed rule will force families of mixed immigration status to break up to receive housing assistance, to forego the assistance altogether, or face eviction from their homes.
Help us try to stop the proposed rule by telling the Department of Housing and Urban Development you oppose this harmful and cruel proposal that could lead to the eviction of over 100,000 people, including 55,000 children, from HUD assisted housing.
Public comments on the proposed rule are due by July 9, 2019.
