Putting an End to Predatory Lending in Minority and Latino CommunitiesGraciela Aponte, (April 23, 2009)
Publication Type: Testimony
In my testimony today, I will discuss protections included in H.R. 1728 that are paramount to guarding Latino families and other underserved communities. I will also discuss sections that need to be strengthened to ensure that lenders are effectively deterred from steering borrowers into high-cost, deceptive, and unaffordable mortgages.
