US Department of Education Out of Control: Unconstitutional, Being Sued and Now This?

US Department of Education Out of Control:

Unconstitutional, Being Sued and Now This?

I thought I was done covering the US Department of Education in the news. After all, within the last 10 days or so it was possible to write posts titled “The U.S. Department of Education is Breaking the Law; Pass It On,” “What is the US Department of Education Doing Illegally Today?” and “U.S. Department of Education Sued: Alleged Conspiring with Wall Street Hedge Fund Manager.”

Had the federal government not taken over control of student loans, would a bank have engaged in this type of behavior?

And Now This, US Department of Education?

 

 

 

 

What I saw through blurry early morning eyes today defied my thinking that this federal department couldn’t possibly be doing anything worse. I was wrong…very very wrong.

It was a video of a story exclusive to News10 out of Stockton, California titled “[Federal]Education Officials Break Down Stockton Man’s Door.” [NOTE: This is not the original site where the first coverage appeared, but it is the original first coverage. Additional coverage link below.] Why did a federal SWAT team break down the door on a home with a man and his three children?

The U.S. Department of Education Office of the Inspector General issued the search and called in¬†S.W.A.T for his estranged wife’s defaulted student loans.

 

“They busted down my door for this,” Wright said. “It wasn’t even me.”

According to the Department of Education’s Office of the Inspector General, the case can’t be discussed publicly until it is closed, but a representative confirmed the department did issue the search warrant at Wright’s home.

Wednesday morning, inspector general spokeswoman Gina Burress provided the following statement:

“The Office of Inspector General does not engage in the collection of student loans. Our mission is to conduct criminal investigations related to the programs and operations of the U.S. Department of Education, which include the student financial aid programs. We can confirm that we executed a search warrant at the residence, however our policy is not to discuss details of our on-going work.”

The Office of the Inspector General has a law enforcement branch of federal agents that carry out search warrants and investigations.
