  • Marquette University Study Finds Racial Discrimination in Home Lending | Ignatian Solidarity Network
    lenders at the earliest stages of the application process According to Dr Andrew Hanson associate professor of economics and the study s lead author black Americans are far more likely than white Americans to be ignored by mortgage loan originators Hanson pointed out that allegations of discriminatory lending practices during the 2004 08 housing boom resulted in the two largest cash settlements ever between mortgage lenders and the Department of Justice 335 million from Bank of America s Countrywide group and 175 million from Wells Fargo The complaints alleged that these institutions steered equally qualified minority applicants into higher interest sub prime loans and charged higher fees than for white borrowers While some observers may chalk the root cause of discrimination during the boom to an unusual housing and lending market that may not necessarily be the case as our research points out Hanson said In the three year study Hanson and his collaborators tested for racial discrimination by mortgage lenders using what s known as a correspondence experiment approach The team sent identical email inquiries to lenders with one primary difference the name of the potential borrower We used names that are highly likely to be associated with either African Americans or white Americans to see if their inquiries were treated differently by lenders Hanson said After analyzing the data from more than 10 000 emails Hanson found net discrimination by 1 8 percent of lenders through non response The study also showed that lenders offer more details about loans and are more likely to send follow up correspondence to whites Looking just at the response rates of mortgage loan originators the effect of being African American is equivalent to the effect of having a credit score that is 71 points lower Hanson noted Marquette University is one of more than 80 university high school and parish institutional members of the Ignatian Solidarity Network Facebook 12 Google 0 Linkedin 0 Twitter 12 Tags Marquette University racial injustice http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2016 01 2960675738 229cfdb82f o jpg 1941 2911 ISN Staff http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2013 04 ISN Color Transparent Large png ISN Staff 2016 01 27 09 43 52 2016 02 01 10 25 25 Marquette University Study Finds Racial Discrimination in Home Lending You might also like Marquette University to host October events to honor alumnus James Foley ISN Connects Jesuit University Immersion Experience Coordinators for National Summit Marquette University Names First ever James Foley Scholar Catholic College Undocumented Students Ask Congress to Recognize Their Humanity Climate Change Jesuit Higher Education Reportback from Loyola Chicago 1 Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic Receives Two Awards Recognizing Community Engagement Marquette University Signs Catholic Climate Covenant s Saint Francis Pledge Marquette Scientists Find Vines in Tropical Forests May Significantly Accelerate Climate Change 0 replies Leave a Reply Want to join the discussion Feel free to contribute Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Receive

  • ISN Joins 273 Organizations In Urging Obama To Protect Immigrants Fleeing Northern Triangle | Ignatian Solidarity Network
    by civil rights labor rights faith based immigrant human rights humanitarian and legal service organizations sets out the legal and factual rationale for the designation of TPS for these countries often referred to collectively as the Northern Triangle The organizations joined the growing national chorus of voices demanding TPS including presidential candidates Senator Bernie Sanders and Martin O Malley over 140 House Democrats and various other groups View full infographic TPS is grounded in clear statutory authority that was established by Congress 25 years ago to respond to humanitarian crises like we are seeing in the Northern Triangle said Royce Murray policy director at Heartland Alliance s National Immigrant Justice Center Knowing the violence that is occurring in these countries and how their governments have failed to keep their own citizens safe it would be unconscionable to deport anyone there at this time It is exactly the type of situation TPS is intended to address The letter sent today asks the administration to employ TPS protection as an additional component of a comprehensive humanitarian response to the Central America refugee crisis in addition to the U S State Department s recently announced plan to establish third country refugee processing centers in Central America There is no factual or legal barrier that prevents the Obama administration from expanding TPS to El Salvador Guatemala and Honduras said Jose Magana Salgado immigration policy attorney at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center Congress provided the executive branch substantial latitude in designating countries for TPS and it is incumbent on this administration to exercise that authority To do otherwise would be to continue to deport Central Americans to their deaths More than 17 500 people died in homicides in 2015 in the Northern Triangle a geographic region the size of the state of Oregon and home to just under 30 million people For the past six years all three countries have ranked within the world s top four countries for rates of femicide while El Salvador and Guatemala have had the highest homicide rates in the world among children A recent report by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center estimates that over 750 000 Central Americans would benefit under a TPS designation Facebook 43 Google 0 Linkedin 0 Twitter 43 Tags Central America Immigration northern triangle President Obama http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2015 03 Screen Shot 2015 03 23 at 5 27 49 PM png 376 376 ISN Staff http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2013 04 ISN Color Transparent Large png ISN Staff 2016 01 26 09 52 30 2016 01 27 11 28 29 ISN Joins 273 Organizations In Urging Obama To Protect Immigrants Fleeing Northern Triangle You might also like Religious Leaders To Obama Do Not Compromise Rights of Unaccompanied Children Jesuit Volunteer Reflects Why can t they just wait in line Jesuit Message to Congress Treat Undocumented Immigrants with Dignity As the House Returns Immigration Policy Update DACA Pablo s Dream is To Become a Doctor Catholic College Undocumented Students Ask
