Displaced Puerto Ricans Losing Aid.
As Puerto Rico prepares for the new hurricane season, the island continues struggling to rebuild homes and the power grid amid news that the death toll from hurricane Maria was 70 times bigger than official reports. Also, thousands of displaced Puerto Ricans are facing obstacles in the US to receive housing assistance and medical help, and many are receiving notice their FEMA aid is ending soon. An advocate talks about his plans to sue several governments.
Guest: Attorney Jorge Luis Vázquez Jr, Associate Counsel, LatinoJustice-PRLDEF, New York, NY.
