In the third quarter of 2008, some 765,558 American properties received default notices or were in foreclosure. While Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced last month they would temporarily halt foreclosures and evictions from Thanksgiving to Jan. 9, the moratorium is likely to affect only a small percentage of homeowners. On a cold December morning, TWI reporter Mary Kane and ANP videographer of the American News Project Garland McLaurin were on the hand to bear witness to an increasingly common, but rarely documented, tragedy: someone being evicted from their home.
