Last week the President traveled to Puerto Rico and in a speech there told the people of Puerto Rico that he and his administration would stand by them when they make a decision about the direction of their political status. The people of DC have voted for statehood and yet the President still will not even bring up the subject. The residents of the District want voting rights + autonomy = statehood. It’s great that he has vowed to stand by Puerto Rico and Puerto Ricans but it’s pure hypocracy that he won’t stand with us and stand up for us. The president should stand with us and stand up for us!
