Eleven Republican-led states are suing the Biden administration over its efforts to “cancel” student loan debt.

The lawsuit, led by Kansas attorney general Kris Kobach, claims Biden’s Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) repayment program is the same as his first attempt to “cancel” student loan debt, which the Supreme Court rejected.

“Last time Defendants tried this the Supreme Court said that this action was illegal,” states the lawsuit, which was joined by the attorneys general from Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.

“Nothing since then has changed, other than introducing more legal errors into this Rule’s underlying analysis,” the suit added. 

“Once again, the Biden administration has decided to steal from the poor and give to the rich. He is forcing people who did not go to college, or who worked their way through college, to pay for the loans of those who ran up exorbitant student debt. This coalition of Republican attorneys general will stand in the gap and stop Biden,” Kobach said in a statement.

“We intend to win again. The law simply does not allow Biden to do what he wants to do. Biden is trying to exercise the powers of a king rather than the powers of a President in a constitutional republic. We look forward to seeing the President’s attorneys in court,” he added.
