President Biden Removed Harmful Housing Policies. More Advocacy is Needed.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a final rule on the “public charge” regulation on September 8, 2022, adding critical protections to immigrant families’ access to social safety net programs, including housing. Learn more here.
The Biden Administration has taken important steps to rescind, vacate, or withdraw proposed and finalized housing regulations that were intended to harm immigrant families. While these latest actions have been essential to ensure that families have access to these critical housing programs, more has to be done to counteract the significant "chilling effect" caused by the previous administration's anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Keep Families Together urges advocates to remain engaged and prepared to fight against policies that hurt immigrant families.
