An Eviction Wave is Coming.

Millions will get kicked out of their homes. It will rival 2008 in terms of magnitude.

Just take a look at the Rent Burden % in Phoenix to see what I'm talking about.

(Read into comments for more)

Landlords / real estate investors got greedy and have jacked up rent far beyond what their tenants can afford.

In Phoenix the Rent Burden accounts for 43% of Tenant's Wages - NOT sustainable.

Lease defaults are already surging. Rent collections are down.
When this breaks - I suspect by the end of 2022 - it will lead to a collapse of the Rental Market in America. Millions will be evicted. Homes will sit empty.

Landlords will panic sell their properties.

This thread explains the situation prior to partition. Now let’s take an extensive look at the situation & discriminations that the native Assamese have faced into their own country due 2 appeasement, stupidity, political correctness, & vote bank politics.
Assam has been mentioned in religious epics like the Puranas, and also in the Mahabharata. In the epic Mahabharata, it was referred to as the land of Kirats with Pragjyotishpur as its capital.
Huen Tsang, the great Chinese traveler, visited this region in the 7th century (640 AD) when the kingdom of Kamrupa was under reign of the powerful king Bhaskarvarmana (594-650 AD).

Thread: As @annymoliva explains, the Supreme Court’s decision ending the #EvictionMoratorium is devastating for millions of families. Here’s more about the federal investment needed to make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes next time.
The impending #eviction crisis was avoidable. Rigorous research shows that #housing vouchers are highly effective at reducing #homelessness, housing instability, and overcrowding and at improving other outcomes for families and children. cbpp.org/research/housi…
Yet 3-in-4 households who qualify for rental assistance don't receive any because of limited funding. And the lucky families that do get a #housing voucher had to wait over two years on average. cbpp.org/research/housi…

Thread: Millions of renters at risk of eviction are grappling with the news that they are no longer protected by the @CDCgov #EvictionMoratorium. The @USSupremeCourt decision last night makes clear that Congress must act before another nation-wide eviction ban can be issued.
Congress should act now, and states & localities can also take steps to prevent & delay #evictions.

Federal lawmakers can make sure this preventable crisis never happens again by sharply expanding #housing vouchers in upcoming recovery legislation. cbpp.org/research/housi…
Here is a link to a tool for finding rental assistance in your community. And below are some steps state and local officials should take. consumerfinance.gov/coronavirus/mo…

1/In March, @SZKamal and I wrote that the single biggest challenge to averting an #eviction crisis was rapid deployment of the aid appropriated by Congress - today’s @washingtonpost finds the same problem 4 months later washingtonpost.com/business/2021/…
2/As we pointed out then, rapid deployment of funds in compliance with federal law is actually a tough lift- outreach across entire communities and new points of access were and ARE needed al.com/news/birmingha…
3/Counties and cities should be reporting to the public and the Congress - at least weekly- what dollars have been committed and what ones have not. That is part of accountability

NEW | A National Emergency: How #COVID19 Is Fueling Unrest in the #US

Analyzing the past year of @ACLEDINFO data, our latest report reveals the full scope of the pandemic’s impact on #American protest patterns for the first time.

Key findings ▶️ bit.ly/3rkNZGR ImageImageImage
Trends in pandemic-related demonstrations are closely correlated with trends in #COVID19 cases, with spikes in unrest matching infection waves reported throughout 2020. Image
ACLED data show that the majority of these demonstrations have been organized around five main drivers: the risks faced by health workers, the safety of prisoners and ICE detainees, anti-restriction mobilization, the eviction crisis, and school closures. Image

Public housing is supposed to be a solution to homelessness, not a cause of it.

But some of these local agencies are aggressive filers of eviction cases. @JennaRCohen shows how the process varies from place to place. #NowhereToGo
@JennaRCohen The Howard Center for Investigative Journalism analyzed four years of eviction data to find out why these important anti-poverty agencies are taking so many of their clients to court. homeless.cnsmaryland.org/2020/12/15/pub… #NowhereToGo
@JennaRCohen Late rent payments were by far the leading reason they sought to evict their tenants, who are living in public housing because they’re struggling to make ends meet. homeless.cnsmaryland.org/2020/12/15/pub… #NowhereToGo

As we approach month 7 of the #COVID19 #eviction response I thought I'd recap some stats from our scraper + data gathered by @januaryadvisors/@evictionlab on the situation in America's 3rd largest county.
Note that these numbers only capture evictions through the legal system. Nothing on illegal lockouts that dispossessed people. Nothing on self-eviction upon receiving a notice to vacate.
Since 3/15, when the economic impact from #COVID19 should've been damn clear to anyone paying attention, 12,331 #eviction cases have been filed in Harris Co

Since 3/27, when the CARES Act was signed into law, 10,699 cases have been filed in Harris Co.
