Student Loan Forgiveness Portal No Longer Accepting Applications After Texas Judge Blocks Program
“The courts have issued orders blocking our student debt relief program. As a result, at this time we are not accepting applications. We seek to rescind these orders. If you have already applied, we will hold your application”, is the message which welcomes student borrowers who wish to apply for President Biden’s vaunted Federal Student Loan Forgiveness Program.
After 18 months of waiting for Biden to deliver on his campaign promise, Biden has announced his administration will move forward with up to $20,000 in student loan debt forgiveness for Americans.
However, the program soon ran into lawsuits from conservative groups, two of whom had their plea stays blocked by Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Despite this, two lower courts have now imposed injunctions on the Ministry of Education to move forward, the second by a Texas judge causing the judgment to accept new applications.
“If you have already applied, we will hold your application. Subscribe and come back here for updates. We will post information as soon as further updates become available,” reads the notice.
