Protesters Gather at Supreme Court to Rally for Student Debt Cancellation

Protesters rallied outside the US Supreme Court overnight ahead of oral arguments over whether President Joe Biden’s plan to cancel some student loan debt can proceed.

The Supreme Court was to hear arguments on February 28 in two cases challenging Biden’s plan to forgive up to $20,000 per person in federal student loan debt.
