US appeals court halts Biden’s billion dollar student debt relief

Oct 22, 2022 | Political News

On Friday, the 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals sided with six states under GOP leadership who sued the Biden administration to halt the president's student debt relief plan that canceled up to $20,000 for borrowers, and will cost taxpayers nearly 1 trillion dollars.

Fox News reports that the block is temporary and gives the court time to properly work through the “request for an injunction” from the Republican-led states of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, South Carolina, and Arkansas.
