State Sen. Dennis Bradley is reminding people that in spite of the Gov. Ned Lamont's moratorium on residential evictions, some tenants are still being forced from their homes.
Bradley tells News 12 Connecticut he'll be filing a motion on Monday to block an eviction order against a local senior.
Magda Ramos said she has to be out of her apartment on Wednesday and will end up on the streets if that happens.
Bradley pledged to do everything he can to delay the process.
"I am very upset because there are no apartments out on the street at all, and I've got a 2-year-old and an 8-month-old that I don't even know where I'm going to go with them. I don't even have a car to sleep in," Ramos said.
"Magda Ramos is clearly protected under this executive order. We're going to do everything in our power to make sure we can keep her in her home. Her family and herself need to know that she has the security of a safe home during this pandemic," Bradley said.
He also said it's important not to let the moratorium lull tenants into a false sense of security. He said there are some exceptions in Lamont's order and if the terms of those exceptions are met, an eviction can still take place.
