I am legal US resident working in the US on a H1B VISA.

When I first arrived in the a number of years ago I obtained a car loan thru my bank. However the bank only will write the loan for as long as my VISA is good for. Are they legally allowed to do this? I feel they are discriminting against me because my nationality is not US. There is no way they require their US citizens customers to prove that they are gainfully employeed after any loan is taken out? It is a big pain in the hiney to show them VISA information every few years for a car loan.

According the the equal credit opportunity (which the bank supposedly adheres to), they should not discriminate based upon nationality. What do you think?
