This guy spent about half an hour trying to explain the police force why they shouldn’t be standing there protecting the ones who are trying to break them, and why they should join the fight and protect THE PEOPLE.
I stood there the whole time listening to him and hoping that at least one of the officers took out their hat or put away their equipment (most of them had them in their hands. Not this side though, they’re on the right) and join us, but none of them did. Some other day, perhaps.
Just a reminder: there is a humanitarian crisis occurring on American soil in Puerto Rico.
That said; know that there will be a mass exodus from the island because of its lack of essential resources.
Puerto Ricans already established on the mainland will invite into their homes family and friends from the island. These US citizens are refugees and will need to change their residency and tax information.
Living in the continental United States means probably for the first time, these traumatized and weary citizens will have the right to vote in state and national elections.
