HAVANA TIMES – The US 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.”

  • The number of homeless is approximately 1 percent of the population in Ontario Canada and my cf the U S. Many homeless people get about 409 dollars U S per month or work part time. There are lots of jobs with take-home pay of $10.00 U S per hour plus the homeless are 10 times better off than a doctor in Cuba. If the Cuban gov would open up Canada Holland and Germany would work to improve farming and food processing and transport and manufacturing and electric power systems. But the Cuban gov wants to keep control instead of the little people.
