A federal judge in Spokane, Washington, has for the most part blocked an education department rule that restricts emergency CARES Act pandemic aid to students eligible for federal student aid, giving more college students in the state a lifeline during the pandemic.
The injunction granted by the judge late on Friday does not however apply to undocumented students who will still be barred from emergency pandemic aid.
