The number of evictions filed in Cameron County down 18% — the new year could change that
In September, the CDC ordered a stop to residential evictions until Dec. 31, but even with the order, this year only saw an 18% decrease in filed evictions.
CDCB Fellow, Caelan Mitchell-Bennett said the new year could bring more evictions.
"Without more entrenched solutions, we know that there's going to be an explosion of evictions, Mitchell-Bennett said. "Not only just filings but actual successful evictions."
Mitchell-Bennett said the crisis started before the pandemic.
