Puerto Rico

This season we’re staying on top of two major topics - the census and the 2020 elections. 

Hundreds of thousands of protestors flooded the streets of Puerto Rico’s capital Monday to demand the resignation of Gov. Ricardo Rossello. Meanwhile, a group of passionate South Bend residents held a rally in solidarity with them. 

Protesters are gathering in the capital of Puerto Rico demanding the resignation of Gov. Ricardo Rosselló after crude messages between him and other officials were published in the media. Some South Bend residents are also gathering this evening to show solidarity.

After not being able to talk to my family for six days, my mom finally called me from the Island. Hurricane Maria had just passed and she couldn't believe was she was seeing. I didn't know what had happened during that time so she started sending me pictures of what I thought was another country. I grew up in Puerto Rico; in these streets and I couldn't recognize any of them. My mom and sister came to stay with me in the Midwest after the hurricane and talked to me about their experience.
