Public Comment on HUD's Proposed Rule on "Mixed-Status" Families

Abstract

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a proposed rule in the Federal Register on May 10, 2019 that would prohibit “mixed-status” families—families whose members have a mix of eligible and ineligible immigration statuses—from receiving federal housing assistance. We oppose the rule because it would require families to choose between remaining with their families and keeping a roof over their head. The rule would not only result in the removal of approximately 25,000 families by HUD’s own estimates, but also put undue burden on both housing authorities and residents by requiring proof of citizenship.
