HUD says 55,000 children could be displaced under Trump plan to evict undocumented immigrants

5/10/19 The Department of Housing and Urban Development acknowledged that a Trump
administration plan to purge undocumented immigrants from public housing could displace more than 55,000 children who are all legal U.S. residents or citizens.
Current rules bar undocumented immigrants from receiving federal housing subsidies but allow families of mixed-immigration status as long as one person ” a child born in the United States or a citizen spouse ” is eligible. The subsidies are prorated to cover only eligible residents.
The new rule, pushed by White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, would require every household member be of “eligible immigration status.”
