Millions of Americans are facing eviction from their homes as of Sunday when a ban on booting out indebted renters expires. The US Supreme Court allowed the 11-month-old moratorium to stay in place last month but ruled that any further extension would require congressional approval. The Republicans in the House of Representatives, however, blocked Democratic-led efforts to extend the eviction ban through mid-October. The House will now go to recess for summer vacation. This comes as over 11 million adult Americans are behind on their rent amid Covid-19 restrictions. The pandemic has so far infected nearly 35 million people in the US and killed over 613,000 Americans.
