WASHINGTON—The United States will cancel $6 billion in student loans for 200,000 borrowers who claimed they were defrauded by their colleges, the administration of President Joe Biden said.

About 43 million Americans have federal student loan debt, according to educationdata.org….https://www.theepochtimes.com/c-us-politics
