Housing is a basic necessity and people shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to access affordable and safe housing. Sen. Castro has demonstrated her commitment to making housing more accessible and protecting tenants from eviction. She successfully passed a law that prohibits discrimination in housing based on one’s source of income and another that prevents landlords from using immigration status as a basis for refusing housing as well as prohibiting landlords from using undocumented status to threaten or harass tenants. She will continue working to improve access to housing and increase tenant protections.
