Perez on Trump & DeVos’s Rollback of Student Loan Protections

WASHINGTON – DNC Chair Tom Perez released a statement in response to the Trump Administration’s rollback of student loan protections:
“Secretary DeVos and President Trump are continuing their assault on American students, protecting the profits of big corporations over the educational opportunities that every student deserves. We should be encouraging people who want to further their education, not setting them up for bankruptcy. That’s why President Obama worked tirelessly with Democrats to protect borrowers and help ease the burden of student loan debt so that every American student can reach their full potential. By ending these protections, Secretary DeVos and the Trump administration are putting higher education further out of reach for millions of hardworking students.”
