Continue to ignore Puerto Rico at your own Risk…

27 Jun

 P.R. Flags at La FortalezaDear Hispanic community, I hate to say I told you so, but I did. Politico is reporting today that immigration reform is dead.

I continue to say that if Congress can continue to treat Puerto Rico (it’s legal Hispanic American citizens) so badly, what makes you think that your community will be treated any differently? To believe this is getting you no where. Rather, isn’t it time you encouraged your organizations to advocate for Puerto Rico – America’s most egregiously marginalized Hispanics?

The payoff here for you is that – with just a Constitution in your hand – there’s a strong argument to be made that Congress is, in fact, obligated to improve it’s treatment of it’s own (already legal) citizens. With so many of our elected officials concerned about securing our nation’s Hispanic voting block, imagine how quickly they’d uplift Puerto Rico if they believed it essential to secure the Latino vote.

You continue to ignore us and you’re getting nowhere. That’s the cold, hard truth. Here’s a link to Politico’s accounting of how immigration reform fell apart…
