In Defense of Puerto Rico

Esteemed Elected Officials,

The American Citizens of Puerto Rico deserve the same amount of respect and funding as any other American Citizen who has suffered from a massive natural disaster.

We ask you to make inquiries and get an accurate picture of the conditions in Puerto Rico today. The media has not reported on the harrowing conditions these citizens are enduring daily. Our government has a duty to ensure funding is used properly to enable these citizens to live in clean and suitable conditions.

We also ask that you intervene on behalf of Puerto Rican US citizens in stopping school closures that are happening now using the excuse of a natural disaster. We do not wish to see a repeat of what happened in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Privatization of their public school system will have the same devastating effects it had in New Orleans. Monetizing this tragedy for the benefit of wealthy investors is criminal.

Please use your considerable power as a legislator to push for fair and equitable funding of schools and the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.
