The Washington Post was the first to publish HUD’s analysis of the ruler and according to the paper the analysis says approximately 108,000 people residing in subsidized housing have an ineligible member. Of those, 76,000 are legally qualified, and 55,000 are kids. They are largely in New York, California, and Texas, according to the Article .
“Tens of thousands of profoundly poor kids, mostly U.S. citizens, might be evicted and made homeless by this proposition , also –by HUD’s own entrance –there could be zero benefit to households on waiting lists”
Based on HUD’s own Investigation, the proposed rule would also separate their parents at the process and those Children
Is a part of a wider crackdown on legislation by President Donald Trump and his senior adviser Stephen Miller. Such moves have attracted headlines as police officers working on the southern U.S. boundary have deported asylum-seekers from Latin America, separating children from their parents at the process.
Along with being separated from their caretakers, it is likely they would be rendered homeless.
“Thanks to [Trump’s] leadership, we are putting America’s most vulnerable first,” Carson tweeted in April when the administration announced the rule. “Our nation faces affordable housing challenges and hundreds of thousands of citizens are waiting for several years on waitlists to get housing assistance.”
The proposed rule would change the public housing eligibility requirements of undocumented immigrants. Presently, an immigrant household can sign a housing unit with a rental provided that one relative is in the USA lawfully, which is the kid. The proposed rule will require all household members to be in the U.S. lawfully.
“These suggested changes would seem to carry out part of the Trump government’s schedule of sharply altering our nation’s immigration policies and making life more difficult for immigrants,” Robert Greenstein, president of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, said in a statement. “The onslaught of policies that the administration has put forward in this area run counter to our nation’s centuries-long experience–still true now –of immigrants coming to the United States and building a better life for themselves and for future generations while still contributing to their communities and the wider society.”
The rule is based upon the heels of numerous Trump administration efforts to decrease funding to public housing and rental assistance programs. Every one of the administration’s four budget suggestions cut completely the public housing capital fund, which is used to make improvements to public housing units. It attempted to cut the public housing fund, which is used to field upkeep and day-to-day operations of public housing.
The White House and carson have contended that the HUD rule shorten waitlists for both public housing and Section 8 housing vouchers, which provide rental aid and would free up funds for recipients.
