HUD makes it easier for illegal immigrants to obtain emergency housing

The Department of Housing and Urban Development made some changes this month to make emergency housing vouchers more readily available. Among them, is waiving citizen and noncitizen documentation, which will make illegal immigrants eligible for these vouchers.

General deputy assistant secretary for Public and Indian Housing Dominique Bloom wrote a letter to outline the operating requirements for the EHV program. This comes after President Biden allotted the program an additional $5 billion dollars in his American Rescue Plan.

“HUD is consequently waiving the requirement to obtain and verify SSN documentation
and documentation evidencing eligible noncitizen status before admitting the family to
the EHV program,” Bloom wrote.

Bloom claims it’s because “this documentation may not be readily on hand and may be difficult to obtain for
individuals and families experiencing homelessness.”

Instead, waiving the requirement will “assist EHV families more quickly,” and later, “provide time for the family to obtain the necessary documentation.” But, these families can receive their vouchers before they ever provide documentation.

According to reports, hundreds of thousands of migrants currently in custody are set to be released soon. Namely, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says there are migrants “in Arizona prisons in short term custody . . . And they are scheduled to be released from Arizona prison or from custody.”

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.

At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.

The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”

In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.

“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”

He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.

The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.

“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
