Chime in on a proposed rule that targets “mixed-immigration status” families.

You have until July 9 to take action on a rule that targets “mixed-immigration status” families.

While attention to the treatment of immigrants has been focused elsewhere, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has quietly proposed a rule that would impact 25,000 U.S. families by withdrawing housing assistance if a member of the family is undocumented.

This rule change impacts legal residents and citizens who are eligible for the housing assistance they are receiving. Many of these families have citizen children. The impact would be to separate families or force families to leave their home or apartment.

Here is the link to read the rule and comment:

Remember that the deadline to comment is Tuesday, July 9 at 8:59 p.m.
