This Friday, the White House announced it will grant Puerto Rico almost $13 billion via FEMA to restore its electrical and educational infrastructure that had been destroyed by Hurricane Maria in September of 2017.
Hurricane Maria, which wreaked havoc on Puerto Rico and the island of Dominica in September 2017, is the deadliest hurricane that the Atlantic coast has seen in over ten years. Fatalities are estimated to be 3,000, but exact numbers are unknown because not enough attention and resources were put into helping the people of Puerto Rico. New York’s Governor, Andrew Cuomo, is suing Trump for having a bias against Puerto Rico and not providing them with the same treatment as he would for Florida or Texas. “We’re going to hold ‘King’ Trump to the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution said equal protection under the law.” Cuomo said.
The whole island is suffering and in need of help
The AHCA. Puerto Rico. Hillary Clinton. This and more in the damage report.
