September 13, 2010 (Bonita) – Congressman Bob Filner (D-San Diego) is urging the public to join him in a massive demonstration against foreclosures.
“Luz Maria is the mother of a son who has been battling cancer and has been told that she and her family will be evicted from their home,” said Filner. “I have been working with her and her bank to come to a reasonable solution -- but to no avail. At minimum she has requested to stay in her home until her son can complete his chemotherapy, but even that request was denied. We are standing with Luz Maria and her family on Tuesday, September 14 at 5:30 a.m. as the Sheriff takes her family's home."
Filner called protecting those who have become victims of the economy one of the most important issues facing America today. “But instead of helping those who needed it most, Washington chose to bail out the big banks with hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer money. And now it is those same banks that are turning around and being unreasonable when it comes to working with homeowners to help them stay in their homes,” said Filner.
