Harlem Rep. Espaillat Calls On NY Landlords To Waive Fees And Evictions During The Trump Shutdown

January 24, 2019

Today, Harlem Rep. Adriano Espaillat released the following statement in support of federal workers urging New York landlords to waive monthly late fees for residents impacted by the Trump shutdown.

“Federal workers are hurting as the Trump Shutdown continues, and tomorrow marks the day when hundreds of thousands of federal workers will miss their second paycheck,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat (NY-13). “As President Trump continues to hold federal workers and many government services hostage for his ineffective, wasteful wall, I am calling on all New York landlords to waive late fees and delay any actions that would potentially lead to eviction for all furloughed federal workers until the government has reopened and federally-employed residents have received back pay.

“My offices are coordinating with local charities to assist furloughed federal workers who live or work in New York’s 13th congressional district. For more information or to request assistance, please call my Harlem district office at 212-663-3900 for details.”


Hoy, el congresista Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) emitió la siguiente declaración en apoyo a los trabajadores federales, instando a los caseros de Nueva York a que exoneren los cargos por pagos tardíos mensuales a los inquilinos afectados por el cierre de Trump.

“Los trabajadores federales están sufriendo mientras el cierre de Trump continúa, y mañana es el día en que cientos de miles de trabajadores federales perderán su segundo cheque de pago”, dijo el congresista Adriano Espaillat (NY-13). “Mientras el presidente Trump continúa reteniendo a los trabajadores federales y muchos servicios gubernamentales como rehenes por su muro ineficaz y despilfarrador, exhorto a todos los propietarios de Nueva York a que exoneren los cargos por pagos tardíos y retrasen cualquier acción que potencialmente lleve al desalojo de trabajadores federales suspendidos hasta que el gobierno haya reabierto y los empleados federales hayan recibido sus pagos atrasados.

“Mis oficinas están coordinando con organizaciones benéficas locales para ayudar a los trabajadores federales que viven o trabajan en el distrito congresual 13 de Nueva York. Para obtener más información o para solicitar asistencia, llame a mi oficina de distrito de Harlem al 212-663-3900”.
