Puerto Rico is not actually a complete part of USA. It was taken in the Spanish American war. They are granted passage to and from the mainland, for them and us because it is so close, but nothing more. They do note participate in our government or constitutional rights because they remain a separate country. In our territory.
Puerto rico it’s where my story begins shirt
With all due respect to everyone’s opinion, and in sympathy with the the conditions in Puerto Rico, I don’t think this is racial, political or Trump’s fault. We had 3 major hurricanes in a row. Parts of Texas and Florida are still flooded-like Florida West Coast/Bonita Springs area (which by the way is home to ” rich white people”). No government can undo the destruction of these hurricanes quickly. Not even here! I live in Miami and we were without electricity for 1 week. FL West Coast for up to 3 weeks. No Gasoline for 1 week. Food in fridge all spoiled and it took the supermarkets about 1 week also to restock. And that comes by truck. Puerto Rico’s situation is made much worse due to it being an island.

Puerto rico it’s where my story begins. And please consider the logistics of getting supplies there -only by air or water; The ports and airports suffered damages. Freight Container Ships which have the capacity to take the most supplies need @3-days navigation from Miami, or other USA ports. We had just gone through Irma/ evacuations etc. on most of the USA East Coast. Consider also the time to collect and prepare supplies. The storm hit just 10 days ago. Private people are donating and helping and the federal government has geared up. I know many people are suffering. And it’s not what people want to hear.But Trump is responding. Jones Act waived. Military being sent. But the fact is the devastation was so strong and widespread that it will take time, and many resources. Almost 4,000,000 people to help and an entire infrastructure to rebuild.
