The Tenants Union of San Antonio flyer states, "As HUD Secretary, Castro promised to help homeowners avoid foreclosure.  In reality, he sent 98% of mortgages to Wall Street for a discount of nearly 50%, to the same people who created the financial collapse.  Castro's policies enabled reckless investors to prey upon struggling people, resulting in financial difficulties, bankruptcies and even homelessness."  The TUSA complaint concerns HUD’s Distressed Asset Stabilization Program which became an issue for Castro in 2016 when Hillary Clinton was reportedly considering him as a possible running mate.
