Keep 20 Year Atlanta Police Veteran and Cancer Patient In Her HomeOccupyOurHomes on October 10, 2012
Updates and next steps for the campaign to save 20 year Atlanta Police Department veteran and cancer patient Jaqueline Barber's home:
Jacqueline Barber's story struck a chord with the American people as it became one of the most reposted stories in the country.
This morning Occupy Homes Minnesota delivered a letter to U.S. Bank's headquarters in Minneapolis. U.S. Bank downplayed their role in Jacqueline’s crisis and passed the blame on to GMAC. Like many loans originated in the height of the housing bubble, Jacqueline's mortgage was bundled with other mortgages and sold to investors. U.S. Bank claims responsibility solely for dealing with investors in the trust (RASC 2006-emx2). According to U.S. Bank, GMAC is responsible for dealing with the other side of the trust, the homes and homeowners whose monthly payments are treated as poker chips to be amassed and turned over to investors.
While U.S. Bank may state that GMAC is the servicer of the trust, it is undeniable that U.S. Bank bought the home on the courthouse steps. It is also impossible to deny that attorneys hired by and representing U.S. Bank will be present in a Newnan courtroom on Thursday aggressively seeking to evict a 20 year veteran of the Atlanta Police Department whose cancer has just come out of remission.
Today Occupy Our Homes ATL will launch a national call in day to U.S. Bank and GMAC with two simple requests, stop attempts to evict, and make a deal that keeps the family in the home.
Please call CEO Richard Davis of U.S. Bank at 612-303-0840 and Elizabeth Desilva 214-874-6821 at GMAC and urge themto call off the eviction and make a deal to keep the family in their home!
This Thursday U.S. Bank is taking Jacqueline to court to waive her stay of eviction that was granted to her through bankruptcy in order to evict the family as soon as possible. Join us at 18 Greenville St, Newnan, GA 30263 at 9 am, Thursday morning as we stand with Jacqueline in her fight to keep her home.
