The Trump administration has proposed a new rule that would prohibit “mixed-status” immigrant families from living in public and other subsidized housing, despite the fact that ineligible immigrants are already not allowed to benefit from federal housing subsidies. The rule would result in family separations and evictions, putting tens of thousands of people and children at increased risk of homelessness. Learn more and submit comments in opposition here. The public has 60 days to comment on the rule.
NLIHC and the National Housing Law Project (NHLP) are leading the effort to oppose this harmful and cruel proposal and have developed advocacy tools for you to use to join us in opposition. Together, NLIHC and NHLP launched a new website, www.Keep-Families-Together.org, where you can find fact sheets and other resources (including talking points and social media images), read the latest news, and submit your own comments directly to HUD. We will continue to update this website throughout the comment period.
