If the US moratorium on evictions expires, the Lightner family could be left on the streets

For Omar Lightner and his family, who live in Florida (USA), this Christmas will mean much more than a small reunion.

The moratorium on evictions in the United States expires on December 31, which means that they could be homeless at the end of the holidays.

“We have $ 200 saved, it will get us nowhere. At this time. It’s the holidays,” Lightner said.

“I wonder at night how I can explain to my children that they cannot have Christmas because we have to leave this place in a few days.”
