Ilhan Omar Calls for Rent and Mortgage Payment Cancellation During Pandemic

Ilhan Omar, the Democrat representative from Minnesota, called for rent and mortgage cancellation, during the pandemic.

“Evicting millions of people during a pandemic would be a moral outrage,” wrote Omar on Twitter. “Cancel rent and mortgage payments now.”

She was commenting on a CNN article about a potential wave of evictions facing the nation in January, after the expiration of a CDC order which determined that the evictions of tenants could be detrimental to public health control measures to slow the spread of COVID-19. The CDC order went into effect on September 4th nationwide and would expire on December 31st.
