To HUD Secretary Carson: Withdraw proposed rule to separate immigrant families in public housing

  • July 11, 2019

In a letter to Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Ben Carson, Director Brown lodged serious concerns about HUD’s proposed rule to separate immigrant families in public housing. In her letter she writes, “The mission of the agency I lead is to strengthen communities. We do so by working closely with local governments, community action agencies, nonprofits and philanthropists, with a shared mission of improving housing affordability and reducing homelessness. Unfortunately, the proposed changes (to the HUD Act of 1980) would do the opposite…move people who are currently housed into homelessness…plunge families and children into crisis…shift costs to our state and local government partners and increase cost for the entire service delivery system.”
