Invite Rosa Clemente
Puerto Rico was already on the brink of economic collapse before the storm hit. Compared to the impacts of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the damage from Maria has received relatively little media or government attention.
The American territory’s economy is in shambles, a fact that affected the dynamic of this latest election. Many Puerto Ricans favor complete independence from the US over statehood.
Activist Rosa Clemente explains her belief that the commonwealth's tie to the United States was never a choice.
