Tennessee Court Halts Biden's Loan Forgiveness Program That Excludes Farmers Because they are White

Southeastern Legal Foundation, Jackson Tennessee - On July 8, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee declared unconstitutional President Biden’s recently enacted program of forgiving loans for farmers based on the color of their skin. The Court also entered a nationwide injunction, halting the program throughout the country. 

The case was brought by Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF) and Mountain States Legal Foundation (MSLF) on behalf of Rob Holman, a farmer from Union City, TN, whose family had been farming the same land in Obion County for generations. Holman had farm loans with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) but was ineligible for loan forgiveness solely because he was white. (link)
