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.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
