Nooksack Tribe of Washington DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE To Their 306 Elders. Evictions For Christmas

I am still recovering from Covid 19, but seeing this on attorney Gabe Galanda’s twitter, got my blood boiling.  Years of elder abuse of the Nooksack 306 is coming to a head with evictions scheduled DESPITE the HUD protestation.  Sadly, deathly silence from Washington’s two Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell.

Galanda: Despite a 2nd @HUDgov request to Nooksack to halt evictions pending @USIndianAffairs investigation of ICRA violations, tribal politicians refuse. They sent cops to @nooksack206 homes twice since getting this letter. 12/28 is the first slated eviction. 3 days after Christmas

These are @HUDgov- & @WSHFC-backed Low Income Tax Credit homes, which our clients have leased to own for as many as 23 years. They enjoy home equity, if not own the units outright. But they are being evicted without due process or access to counsel, in violation of federal law.

The Nooksack 306 struggles have been documented here on this site since the beginning.At this late date, only a fliurry I’d your support could make a difference.  Spotlight is the best disinfectant.
