We Must Protect American Families!
"Mixed-Status" immigrant families are at risk. HUD wants to cut off federal housing assistance to certain families that contain undocumented citizens, despite another member of the household being a documented American.
If approved, 25,000 families and 55,000 children would face eviction and homelessness.
Sign this letter to support those at risk!
Dear HUD leaders:
I do not support any government agency's attempt to cut off aid and evict American families, including those of "mixed-status." We cannot allow our people of color, LGBTQ+ neighbors, or any American not to have access to potentially life-saving housing programs, such as those found under Section 8.
Denying access to vitally needed subsidized housing will severely impact the Latino community, who are suffering under current and past immigration policies. This rule would displace 55,000 children and a total of 108,000 people. Despite the current administration's claims, our country's undocumented immigrants are not taking up space that could serve other families — considering at least one member must be a documented American.
Taking away this opportunity for "mixed-status" families would only go to punish our citizens and increase homelessness, and is therefore wrong. I urge HUD not to enact such a family-endangering rule.
Sincerely, A Supporter of American Families
