Republicans are heaping more debt on the pile with financial aid in the form of loans over the objections of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, who says "The reconstruction of Puerto Rico is an opportunity to reboot the island's economy" through "bolstering basic services such as healthcare, education, electricity and renewable energy".

Vegetables canned by the Queer Kitchen Brigade in Brooklyn wait to be delivered to farmers in Puerto Rico. As of the day he uttered that self-inflated rating, 80 percent of the island was still without electricity and large portions of the island are without access to clean water.

Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said last week that some of Puerto Rico's municipalities weren't aware that food and water supplied by FEMA was available at distribution centers.

For JetBlue, it has been a successful strategy, and in recent years, the airline has been flying about 50 daily flights from the island, the majority of them from San Juan. "This is what POTUS calls a 10!". Yet more and more Puerto Ricans will keep out-migrating as the island continues to suffer neglect in the wake of the hurricanes and its economy continues to limp along. The schools are essentially divided. The seafood restaurants began serving lobster and the mashed plantain dish mofongo.

Rivera said she is organizing a roundtable for Nov. 10 at Southeastern University for community members and people who are relocating to come together and discuss the issues they are facing.

Maria and her grandson moved to Lakeland to stay with relatives. They are a deeply giving, and happy, people. But she wanted repairs made first to ensure the safety of students and teachers.

One of the district's strategic aims is to cut into the business of competing charter schools by persuading more students to stay in district schools. Many residents from San Juan have visited as break from tough conditions at home but business in the resort town is still down.

And then, you know, I've been to other schools where damage was minimal. This person paid Fusion GPS to investigate Trump's background, and it was quickly determined that Trump had deep ties to Russia, several people told the Post. "Because we have the possible factors that can contribute to the development of outbreaks to those diseases if no precautions to decrease the risk are taken". Right now, people who want to leave should be allowed to fly to the mainland and receive help getting resettled, especially the sick and elderly.

Chicago has a bond of family and humanity with Puerto Rico that has sparked an outpouring of compassion, even as compassion has eluded the White House.
