The USDA Wants To Kick Mixed-Status Immigrant Families Out Of Their Homes

Source: Vice News

WASHINGTON — Months after the Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed terminating federal housing assistance for “mixed-status” immigrant families, another agency is planning on doing the same thing.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is preparing to roll out an identical rule change for its Rural Housing Service, which manages over 415,000 units of subsidized low-income housing, sources close to the agency tell VICE News.

Like HUD, the agency plans to end eligibility for its program for families where one or more members are undocumented. Under the proposed rule change, families with members that do not have residency or citizenship documents would lose their homes.

The USDA’s program is one of several geared toward revitalizing rural communities and boosting residency in sparsely populated areas. It serves low-income families, many of whom are seniors or who have disabilities. Rural Housing Service also offers direct home loan programs, and subsidizes about 1,000 properties used to house farm laborers.

3. Some of the cruelest assholes on the planet have hijacked our government with the aid

of a significant number of our fellow citizens. For the most part I was able to keep politics out of my personal relationships during the Bush years, even though some days it was very difficult, like the day the Abu Ghraib photos came out. But this one's going to leave a mark. There are some people in my life that I will never look at the same again.
