Puerto Rico foreclosures draw protests at TPG, Blackstone offices
February 22, 2018
In December 2017 and January 2018, community groups and Puerto Rican diaspora groups concerned about TPG Capital’s and The Blackstone Group’s foreclosures in Puerto Rico held protests at TPG’s and Blackstone’s offices. The groups called on Blackstone and TPG to halt foreclosures on the island and provide a path for families to stay in their homes.
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development moratorium of foreclosures on the island expires in on March 19, and neither Blackstone nor TPG have committed to halt foreclosures when the moratorium expires.
