The U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered a nationwide injunction to block Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness policy calling the scheme unconstitutional.

Biden has announced that some people will have up to $10,000 in school debt forgiven for individuals who earn less than $125,000 a year, and up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients. The administration also claims that it has the power to cancel loans under its emergency COVID powers.

But Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, and South Carolina filed a lawsuit against the forgiveness policy in September to stop the program.

Now the court has agreed to put a halt to the loan program.

“We conclude that, at this stage of the litigation, an injunction limited to the plaintiff States, or even more broadly to student loans affecting the States, would be impractical and would fail to provide complete relief to the plaintiffs,” the latest court order said, according to the Daily Caller.

U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman said Biden’s program is unconstitutional and that the coronavirus HEROES Act did not provide the “clear congressional authorization” to allow the administration to use it as cover to cancel the debt.

The injunction, the court said, will stay in place unless it changes its mind or the U.S. Supreme Court makes a ruling.
