U.S. Marshals Service is arresting people in Houston for not paying their outstanding federal student loans.
According to a Fox 26 article on the story, one man was arrested for a
$1,500 student loan he took out in 1987. Seven marshals showed up at his
home, in combat gear and armed with automatic weapons, and took the man
to the federal courthouse. After an hour of being held in a four-by-four
cell, the man was escorted to the courtroom, where he was made to sign
a repayment plan for the nearly 30-year-old debt. The man had never received
notice before this drastic action was taken.
This is just one example of the lengths the federal government will go
to in cracking down on unpaid debts. In Houston alone, the U.S. Marshal
still has to serve up to 1,500 warrants to people who have not paid back
their student loans.
