Hours after a federal court in Texas ruled against President Biden’s student loan handout, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre released a statement on the administration’s opinion toward the ruling.
Jean-Pierre stated the administration “strongly disagrees” with the District Court’s decision and an appeal has been filed by the Department of Justice.
“The President and this Administration are determined to help working and middle-class Americans get back on their feet, while our opponents – backed by extreme Republican special interests – sued to block millions of Americans from getting much-needed relief,” Jean-Pierre added.
She said the Department of Education will hold onto the information of all 26 million borrowers who have applied for the handout, so their relief can be “quickly” processed once they “prevail in court.”
