“tenants moving into state-funded housing in Massachusetts do not have to prove their citizenship or immigration status.......A one-person household must earn less than $43,600 annually to qualify for a state or federal public housing unit managed by the BHA. Rents at Onyango’s West Broadway residence are calculated at 32 percent of a resident’s income.

Since 2006, state Sen. Robert L. Hedlund Jr. (R-Weymouth) has tried three times to close the loophole that makes state-funded public housing available to illegal immigrants.

“It is a massive, absurd loophole that we can fix very easily,” Hedlund said.”
