Believe it or not, the US Marshals Service in Houston is arresting people for not paying their outstanding federal student loans.
Paul Aker says he was arrested at his home last week for a $1500 federal student loan he received in 1987.
He says seven deputy US Marshals showed up at his home with guns and took him to federal court where he had to sign a payment plan for the 29-year-old school loan.
Congressman Gene Green says the federal government is now using private debt collectors to go after those who owe student loans.
Green says as a result, those attorneys and debt collectors are getting judgments in federal court and asking judges to use the US Marshals Service to arrest those who have failed to pay their federal student loans.
Our reliable source with the US Marshal’s office in Houston says Aker isn’t the first and won’t be the last.
They have to serve anywhere from 1200 to 1500 warrants to people who have failed to pay their federal student loans.

Good thing this guy wasn’t black.
Otherwise they would have sent in the U.S. Marshall’s in swat team fashion…..cuffed him….. plant a wallet on him loaded with drug money and hauled him off to the Federal Detention center.
Now if he was white…, they would have sent in the U.S. Marshall’s in swat team fashion…..cuffed him….. plant a wallet on him with drug money and hauled him off to the Federal Detention center.
Then kill his dog.
The kicker here is that ….
If you die owing student loans….
They’ll even come after your children to pay it off.
debtors prison ?
yeah its like that
I wonder if these sleuths could be persuaded to find our $22 trillion that’s been stolen.
