DACA debate likely to impact lenders

first_imgPresident Trump’s announcement that he was ending the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in six months unless Congress passes legislation addressing the issue has important implications for lenders as individuals affected by the President’s announcement turn to the courts for protection.The DACA program was instituted by President Obama in 2012. It allows qualified individuals who are illegal aliens who entered the country as minors to receive renewable two-year periods of deferred deportation. They are also eligible to receive work permits.When I heard about the President’s announcement, I figured that now would be a good time to update you on the status of a case which has important potential implications for lenders. In Perez v. Wells Fargo & Co., Case No.: 17-cv-00454-MMC, DACA recipients are suing Wells Fargo claiming that the bank’s lending policies violate federal civil rights law. Each of the highlighted plaintiffs applied to the bank for a loan. Nonetheless, they argue that they were denied loans ranging from student loan applications to a loan for commercial equipment. Each claims that they has a U.S. citizen as a willing co-signer but that the bank categorically refused their applications. continue reading » 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

So far so good for Martinez

first_img In the Barclays Premier League, after a fifth-placed finish in 2013-14, they are ninth, while they were knocked out of the Capital One Cup at the third round stage in September. They have suffered some notable injury setbacks, with the latest being the loss of defender Antolin Alcaraz for up to 12 weeks due to a dislocated shoulder sustained in Saturday’s top-flight 0-0 draw with Swansea. But Toffees boss Martinez is confident in his group’s ability to handle whatever is thrown at them. Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Thursday’s home Europa League clash with Lille, Martinez said: “I think we have adapted really very well. “I have been very impressed with the manner in which, as a squad, we have been facing every game full of energy and full of desire. “We want to grow into this competition, try to be as good as we can, and clearly the first objective is to try to get through (to the knockout rounds). “Step by step, we are enjoying the demands of this season.” Then asked if he thought his squad was strong enough to cope with the injuries coming its way, the Spaniard said: “Yes, and I think we have shown that. “In football, you can take two approaches – one is to start moaning about injuries and suspensions. The other is to look at opportunities. “I felt once the summer transfer window shut we had a strong enough squad in terms of quality and numbers to face the Europa League and the domestic competitions. “The answer is clear – yes, we can cope with injuries, suspensions and the demands of the games. “I have been very pleased with the manner in which we have adapted to the travelling, to playing Thursdays and Sundays. “I think the mentality of the group has been ready in terms of being able to perform consistently in every competition.” Martinez has made several changes to his team for the last two Europa League fixtures, and added: “I think there is not such a thing as a weakened side. “I don’t see a weakened side by making four, five, six changes. I think the real strength we have proven is that, making changes, we are ready to face the games. “It doesn’t mean we are not taking things seriously or that we don’t expect the team to perform in a manner where they could win. “If we want to become a big club with a big mentality, we need to face many, many games in a short period of time – and then you need a large squad. I think we have responded to it really well.” Alcaraz has joined fellow defender John Stones (ankle) on the sidelines and in the absence of that pair, Martinez is set to bring either veteran Sylvain Distin or youngster Tyias Browning into his first XI at centre-back on Thursday. On the potential timescale for 32-year-old Paraguayan Alcaraz’s period out, Martinez said: ”The decision now is if he needs surgery or not, and it is one we are going to measure well and make the right call. “So it would depend – between six and 12 weeks, depending on the route we are taking.” Kevin Mirallas (hamstring), Bryan Oviedo and Arouna Kone (both match fitness) are also unavailable for first-team selection at present, but Darron Gibson is in contention again after missing the weekend’s game due to a knock. Meanwhile, Martinez has dismissed reports linking him with the manager’s job at Inter Milan. He said: “I think you can’t comment on things that come out in the press, otherwise you will be filling a lot of hours talking about speculation. “There is nothing for me to comment on.” The Merseysiders have a more hectic schedule this term, with them participating in the Europa League for what is their first continental campaign since 2009-10. Certainly on that front, they have fared well to date – they currently sit top of Group H having taken five points from their first three games in the pool, a 4-1 home victory over Wolfsburg followed by draws away at FK Krasnodar and Lille. Roberto Martinez feels Everton have done a good job so far this season of adapting to the demands placed upon them – and is sure they will continue to do so. Press Associationlast_img read more

French Open: ‘La Decima’? Ha! Nadal’s number two was much tougher, says uncle Toni Nadal

first_imgRafael Nadal is chasing a historic 10th French Open title in Paris, but nothing will ever come close to trying to win his second.That’s according to his uncle and long-time coach, Toni Nadal.When asked what it would mean if his nephew became the first player since tennis turned pro in 1968 to win 10 titles at the same grand slam event, Toni Nadal did not mince his words: “Nothing.””There is more difference between one and two than between nine and 10,” Nadal, 57, said in an interview with a small group of reporters in the hospitality lounge of one of the French Open’s sponsors, Lavazza coffee, at Roland Garros on Tuesday.He said his nephew had been “really nervous” when he had to defend his title in 2006.”(To go from) nine to 10 is only 11 percent, no more,” Nadal added. “(To go from) one to two is 50 percent. This is the difference. The life of Rafael will not change if he wins this tournament for the 10th time. For us, it was very important to win nine times here, but eight, seven, six or five was also important.”Toni Nadal first started coaching his nephew when he was four years old. His unusual training methods included persuading Rafael to play left-handed, even though he was naturally right-handed. Toni believed playing left-handed would give Rafael an advantage, and he proved to be correct.Under Toni’s guidance, Rafael has won 72 titles, including 14 grand slam championships. Nadal’s breakthrough was when he won the French Open in 2005 in his first appearance at Roland Garros at the age of 19.advertisementNadal would hold the top spot in men’s tennis for 141 weeks and has amassed more than $83 million in career earnings. In 2010, he completed the career Golden Slam of all four grand slam events, including Olympic gold, when he won his first US Open championship.But the partnership with his uncle, one of the most successful and longest in tennis, will come to an end.A father of three young children and now the director of the Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy on the Spanish island of Mallorca, Toni Nadal will hand over the reigns to former French Open winner Carlos Moya as head coach next year.Moya, who joined the Nadal coaching set-up this season, had a slightly different take on the hunt for title No. 10.”I see there is some pressure now,” Moya said at Roland Garros. “We don’t talk about ‘La Decima’. But it is there, you feel it, it’s in the air.”After 16 years on the road with his nephew, Toni Nadal said he’s looking forward to spending more time at home in Mallorca with his wife and three young children.”When I am here in Paris, I am very happy,” he said. “I go for walks from my hotel, I walked from Montmartre to Notre Dame. But I am also happy at home. Every morning, I wake up with the sun and sea. I try to be happy everywhere.”But, when asked if he would miss the pressure of the competition, he said immediately shook his head and said: “No!”Although Nadal said he’s happy to let Moya take over, he will help his nephew if needed.”If he pays the ticket, I will go,” he joked.When asked what results would make him most happy this year, he said: “To be healthy, and to play very well here. It’s very important.”last_img read more
