Recovery support: CDC extends deportation ban
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was extended Monday through June 30 a national ordinance to prevent the eviction of millions of American tenants amid the economic fallout from the covid-19 pandemic, Reuters report.
The CDC’s moratorium on most residential evictions – which the agency justified by citing the public health crisis – was due to expire on Wednesday.
“Keep people in their homes and out of crowded places or places of gathering – like homeless shelters – preventing evictions is a key step in helping to stop the spread of covid-19“CDC director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.
The order was originally issued by the Atlanta-based agency in September under the administration of former President Donald Trump. It was extended January 29 until the end of March after President Joe Biden takes office.
The White House noted that in January, one in five American renters was behind on rent. The CDC said a March survey by the US Census Bureau found more than 4 million adults behind on rent fear imminent risk of eviction.
The US Congress has approved $ 21.5 billion in additional emergency rent assistance this month in addition to the $ 25 billion approved in December.
