“We must come together to help Puerto Rico in this time of crisis and this summit in New York will help bring more awareness to the plight of the island. For too long, the United States citizens in Puerto Rico have faced an uncertain future and it is time for the federal government to step up for them. Many groups are coming together to help Puerto Rico in its time of need and this is another step in the right direction to unite everyone behind one call to action: Save Puerto Rico. New York and Puerto Rico share strong cultural, economic and familial ties and I thank Governor Cuomo for his continued leadership.”
