Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took to Twitter to call for rent to be cancelled until the coronavirus crisis is ended.

Omar joins progressive advocacy organizations, who have cited the economic downturn stemming from the coronavirus as a reason to cancel rent for those struggling.

“We need to cancel rent until this crisis is over,” Omar tweeted Wednesday.

We need to cancel rent until this crisis is over.

People are already striking because they cannot afford rent.

We need immediate relief.

I am introducing a bill this week to #bailout renters and create a relief fund for homeowners/landlords to stop foreclosures.#RentStrike #CancelRent
