Perspectives: A Potential Eviction Crisis in America

Summary from the AllSides News Team

According to a National Low Income Housing Coalition report released Friday, 30-40 million people in the United States are at risk of eviction, a trend that disproportionately affects black and Hispanic communities. Many eviction moratoriums, implemented by local governments and the CARES Act during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, have expired. On Saturday, President Donald Trump directed the Treasury and Housing and Urban Development departments to identify funds to help renters, and directed the Federal Housing Finance Agency to review existing authorities that could help prevent evictions. Many voices on all sides warned about the eviction crisis and advocated for various policy solutions. Right-rated voices tended to mention evictions in passing as part of covering the executive actions. Some left-rated voices explored the subject more deeply, and tended to concentrate more on potential consequences for tenants than landlords.
