What “Entitles” Some People to Student Loan Forgiveness?

“Before President Biden took office, it was virtually impossible for eligible borrowers to access the student debt relief they rightfully earned,” U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said in a statement.

What entitles one group of people to eradication of debt, and not another? I paid my student loans off in 2001. Why am I not getting a refund on tuition? Why am I NOT rightfully entitled while another is?
