#1 - Stop HUD's Cruel Proposal to Break up and Evict Immigrant Families
In the latest attack on immigrants, the Administration has proposed a rule which would prevent mixed immigration status families from accessing HUD benefits. Families in which even one person is undocumented would not be allowed to live in public housing or use Section 8 vouchers. These families would be forced to make the intolerable choice between separation or eviction. More than 25,000 families, including more than 55,000 children who are U.S. citizens or have legal status, are at risk of being made homeless by HUD's proposal.
