U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette is worried about a spike in the homeless population and COVID-19 if the Centers for Disease Control doesn’t reissue their edict prohibiting Americans from collecting rent from tenants.
It turns out the whole reason the Biden administration didn’t extend the moratorium is because the Supreme Court says the CDC doesn’t really have the authority to give away billions of dollars worth of private property every month.
That’s why I cosponsored legislation to extend the nationwide eviction moratorium that just expired.
If the CDC won’t act unilaterally, then Congress needs to do its job to get this fixed.

Democrats say they are upset the moratorium is ending just as they are hyping a resurgence of the coronavirus, which they claim is of chief concern.
Just look at all these homeless people gathered under this bridge, that’s a super spreader event for sure.
That shot is taken from video of nearly 1,000 illegal immigrants being held by border patrol agents under a bridge near the southern border in Texas this week.
Republicans call that an absolute catastrophe.
Democrats call it a Monday.
And DeGette could care less about those homeless.
More than one million immigrants have surged past the border since Biden took office without nary a care for how many were carrying the Delta variant with them or where they would live.
If the Biden Administration wants to stop the spread they must shut the border. https://t.co/ISNkCRpyS0
