This chapter tackles contentious policy issues that must be resolved before U.S. residents find the political will to enact and implement the reforms aimed at creating fair and equal housing opportunity for Latino/as proposed in the final two chapters. Preeminent among them is why Americans should care about the dismal state of housing for Latino/as, and whether undocumented and documented immigrants deserve the same treatment as Latino/a citizens. This chapter addresses these and other policy conundrums, such as the dilemma of whether regulation of overcrowding, housing quality, and home loan eligibility will hurt more than help by pricing or otherwise driving Latino/as out of purchase, rental, and housing finance markets.

Keywords:   Latino/as, housing, overcrowding
