#Eviction moratorium

Statement by Press Secretary JenPsaki on EvictionMoratorium

Throughout the pandemic, preventing evictions and keeping people in their homes has been a proven way of slowing the spread of COVID-19. The Administration believes that CDC’s new moratorium is a proper use of its lawful authority to protect the public health. We are pleased that the district court left the moratorium in place, though we are aware that further proceedings in this case are likely.

Good morning from Augusta. QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I hate when people say the ‘new normal,’” said Wren Stark of Charleston, who is among the Mainers saying she still will not get vaccinated despite the Food and Drug Administration’s full authorization of the Pfizer vaccine this week. “If they would just let things go back to normal, treat the people that are high-risk and leave the rest out of it, I think the world would be better for it.”

Supreme Court Strikes Down Eviction Moratorium Despite Surging Coronavirus Cases

The Supreme Court has struck down the Biden administration’s temporary moratorium on evictions during the pandemic. In a 6-3 ruling, the court’s conservative majority ruled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exceeded its authority and that only Congress had the power to order a pause on evictions. The court’s ruling puts an estimated 3.5 million people at risk of eviction in the next two months. In a dissenting opinion signed by Justices Sotomayor and Kagan, Justice Stephen Breyer wrote, “These people may end up with relatives, in shelters, or seeking beds in other congregant facilities where the doubly contagious Delta variant threatens to spread quickly.”

SCOTUS Strikes Down Biden’s Eviction Moratorium Extension

The Supreme Court ruled that Joe Biden’s extension of a coronavirus pandemic eviction moratorium was unconstitutional Thursday. The court had already ruled the moratorium, issued via the CDC in July 2020, was unconstitutional without an act of Congress that would pass it into law. Biden’s administration issued the extension while acknowledging that its legal standing to do so was questionable at best. The high court’s three liberal justices dissented. The conservative majority opinion read, “It would be one thing if Congress had specifically authorized the action that the CDC has taken. But that has not happened. Instead, the CDC has imposed a nationwide moratorium on evictions in reliance on a decades-old statute that authorizes it to implement measures like fumigation and pest extermination. It strains credulity to believe that this statute grants the CDC the sweeping authority that it asserts.”
