"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Why does that section of the 14th amendment not apply?

What makes you think the public tax sale took place without due process of law?

Straight from the article:

* Homeowners receive several warnings before their liens are put up at annual auctions.

* Once a lien is sold, owners have six months to repay the investor with interest. If that does not happen, the investor can move to foreclose.

The article even mentions the families getting their day in court over the post-tax-sale foreclosure.

I just realized I'm serial rage-replying on this article. You know that annoyed feeling you get when the news covers a subject you're familiar with? Well.
