Loretta Sanchez Blasts Illegal Forecloses on Homes of Military Members
"Hardworking people all across the country have been the victim of improper foreclosure, but this recent epidemic of wrongful military foreclosures is particularly atrocious," says Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove) in a statement her office issued this morning.
"Soldiers have an extra layer of legal protection in mortgage lending, thanks to legislation that restricts foreclosure of properties owned by active-duty members of the military," Sanchez notes. "I will fight for these nearly 5,000 service members who have been wronged. They deserve to get their homes back where possible and deserve monetary damages in cases where the home has been sold. While our troops fight for us abroad, they should not have to worry about losing their homes stateside. We must ensure that justice is served."
Real justice would involve putting unscrupulous bankers in the civilian equivalent of a brig--not that that will ever happen.
