New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

ALBANY, NY — January 19, 2020 — “I’m glad the federal administration finally recognized what the rest of the world already knows: what’s happening in Puerto Rico is a disaster and the people who live there need immediate assistance to rebuild and recover.

“I traveled to Puerto Rico this week and witnessed firsthand the devastation caused by ongoing earthquakes and tremors. Buildings and infrastructure have been completely destroyed, families have been displaced and people are afraid. They are suffering and they need our help — which is why New York immediately stepped up and deployed personnel and resources. That’s what we do for our brothers and sisters.

“The federal administration’s belated disaster declaration and release of long-held disaster recovery funding to Puerto Rico is a crucial step, but more needs to be done. President Trump must now actually disburse the remaining funds that were approved by Congress during Hurricane Maria over two years ago. “Releasing” the funds is not enough — they must actually be distributed.

“The people of Puerto Rico are not second class citizens — they are American citizens — and it’s past time the federal administration acknowledged that fact.”

  1. What about the revelation Governor Fredo that a warehouse in Puerto Rico the size of 4 football fields has been filled with all sorts of emergency supplies since 2017 and has not been touched-another example of the corruption and malfeasance of the Puerto Rican leadership -The United States should not put another dime into the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico until they can right their own ship-enough is enough with the political , racial and identity blame game
