Join Us: Social Media Action On HUD’s Attempt to Remove Families from Housing

Tomorrow, July 9, is the final day to submit comments opposing the Trump Administration’s latest attack on immigrant families.

A proposed rule change from the Department of Housing and Urban Development would render an entire household ineligible for rental assistance or public housing if it at least one member of the household is classified as ineligible due to immigration status.

The proposal could force low-income immigrant households to split up their families or face potential eviction from subsidized housing.

More than 11,000 people nationwide have stepped up and submitted their unique comments on this draconian proposal. Join a national movement today by:

Step 1: Submit your comment today

Step 2: Tweet from 11-12 today July 8th, using the hashtag #keepfamilies together.

Below, check out a few of our sample tweets provided by the National Low Income Housing Coalition.

Sample Tweets

  • Let’s be clear. Federal subsidies DO NOT support undocumented immigrants! Then why is @SecretaryCarson proposing such a cruel rule? Let HUD know that a proposal like this will not stand. Send comments today http://bit.ly/2ZWd0u0 #KeepFamiliesTogether
  •  

  • @SecretaryCarson’s unconscionable proposal would evict over 100k people, incl. 55k deeply poor kids that are US citizens or legal residents, at the height of an #affordablehousing crisis. Let HUD know today that you oppose this rule http://bit.ly/2ZWd0u0 #KeepFamiliesTogether
  •  

  • FACT: Undocumented immigrants do NOT receive housing subsidies–it’s not allowed in law. HUD’s rule isn’t for shortening housing waiting lists but for instilling fear in families. Tell @SecretaryCarson we will not stand for this! http://bit.ly/2ZWd0u0 #KeepFamiliesTogether
