On Wednesday, 04 October 2017, Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard implored her fellow congress members and the federal administration to pass a comprehensive aid package for Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria.
Gabbard said the survival of Puerto Rico’s citizens is at stake:
“The people of Puerto Rico are literally crying out for help. There are far too many, especially those in rural communities, who still have not been reached by those bringing aid. As a representative from the island state of Hawaii, I can only imagine their frustration and desperation. I urge the administration to dedicate all available resources for recovery efforts in Puerto Rico and work with Congress to pass an emergency aid package to ensure that those delivering aid have what they need to help the people of Puerto Rico and save lives.”
