Pelosi urges White House to reinstate expired eviction moratorium

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is urging President Biden and his administration to renew and extend the eviction moratorium after the House failed to secure enough votes to pass legislation to prevent its lapse.

Why it matters: Millions of tenants across the country face the threat of eviction after the moratorium expired this weekend.

  • Last week, President Biden called on Congress to extend the CDC's national eviction moratorium, saying the administration couldn't extend it past July 31 without specific legislation.

What they're saying: Democratic House leadership issued a statement on Sunday, calling on the administration to "immediately extend the moratorium" through Oct. 18.  

  • "Doing so is a moral imperative to keep people from being put out on the street which also contributes to the public health emergency," Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) and Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) said.
  • “The virus is still a threat.  The moratorium must be extended, and the funds Congress allocated to assist renters and landlords must be spent.  An extension of the moratorium is based on public health and the delta variant.  It will also give more time to allow the money that Congress allocated to finally flow."
  • Pelosi added in a letter to her Democratic colleagues on Monday that it "is unfathomable that we would not act to prevent people from being evicted."
  • "As we urge the White House to act, please note that Congress will work to address any vulnerability to the CDC identified by the courts," she added.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
