NLIHC: Join NLIHC, NHLP, and Representative Sylvia Garcia for June 26 Day of Action to Keep Families Together

Join advocates from across the nation for a Day of Action to Keep Families Together on June 26 to oppose HUD's cruel proposal to force 25,000 mixed-status immigrant families - including 55,000 children who are U.S. citizens or have legal status - to separate or face eviction.

Individuals and organizations are invited to host comment parties on June 26 to voice their opposition to HUD's proposal by the July 9 deadline. Advocates have already submitted more than 5,000 comments, and we need your help to generate even more!

As part of the Day of Action, Representative Sylvia Garcia (D-TX) will join us for a webinar at 2:00 p.m. ET on June 26! Representative Garcia has helped lead the fight against the proposed rule in Congress, introducing the “Keeping Families Together Act of 2019.” Her bill to block HUD from implementing the rule recently passed out of the House Financial Services Committee.

Day of Action to Keep Families Together

Despite claims from HUD Secretary Ben Carson and the Trump administration, current law, regulation, and practice already ensures that ineligible immigrants do not receive housing assistance. By HUD's own admission, its “mixed-status” immigrant proposal would provide no benefit to families on housing waiting lists and could lead to the eviction of 55,000 American children and their families.

NLIHC, the National Housing Law Project (NHLP), and other national leaders urge you and those in your network to join us in opposition to this cruel proposal. Host a comment party on the June 26 Day of Action to Keep Families Together to engage your network and allow people with limited access to the internet an opportunity to make their voices heard!

Get Started Today!

To help you get started, NLIHC and NHLP created a Comment Party Planning Toolkit with tips and resources to plan a successful comment party.

Other materials - including a new Myth vs. Fact factsheet, a Spanish language commenting portal and fact sheet, a social media toolkit, and more - are available at our campaign website -
