President Joe Biden's plan to offer millions of borrowers up to
$20,000 in federal student loan forgiveness was stopped
by a U.S. judge in Texas on Thursday. The programme had already been
suspended while a federal appeals court in St. Louis considered
a separate lawsuit filed by six states opposing it.
The programme, according to District Court Judge Mark Pittman
a former president Donald Trump appointment stationed
in Fort Worth, usurped Congress' authority to enact laws.
