Puerto Rico Needs Our Help

It has been almost a week since Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico as a category 4 storm, causing the worst devastation that the island has seen in 100 years. 

The 3.4M residents of the island are all US citizens, but it doesn't feel that way if we look to our President. Over the weekend, National Anthem protests at football games received the attention of President Trump, yet he did not tweet about Puerto Rico until Monday. In those Tweets? He reminded the people of PR that they owe a lot of money to Wall Street.

Why isn't Puerto Rico receiving more aid from our federal government? Why hasn't a disaster relief bill been signed, let alone introduced? What is our current Representative doing? Nothing is more important than helping all of our citizens, and it seems that PR has been forgotten. 

If this terrible tragedy was occurring in Ventura County, we would be in desperate need of

help, and our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico deserve the same.
