Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez (IL), who is one of the most outspoken supporters for a pathway to amnesty for all illegal immigrants living in the U.S., took to the House floor to make the case for why Congress needed to act, and bailout the island of Puerto Rico from its current state of economic misery.
“We own it, its ours, and we are responsible for it.”- Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D)
In making his case, and with the assistance of easel holding a diagram of the island of Puerto Rico, Gutierrez called for the people of Puerto Rico to apply direct pressure to the U.S. Congress.
Republican presidential hopeful, Jeb Bush, has also called for a U.S. government bailout of Puerto Rico.
