Federal appeals court temporarily halts Biden’s student debt relief program

A federal appeals court has temporarily blocked the Biden administration from moving forward with a plan to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in federal student loan debt.

The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday issued an order barring the Biden administration from “paying any student loan debt” under the aid package until it rules on a emergency demand from Republican-led states to block the policy.

The Biden administration previously said in court papers that it could begin canceling student loans as early as this Sunday.
