Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman José E. Serrano released the following statement on events in Puerto Rico:

“Puerto Ricans have spoken and demanded accountability and respect from their leaders.  They have spoken out against mismanagement and corruption, issues that have no party lines on the island. Now Puerto Rico must come together and chart a path forward as the island continues recovering from the ongoing economic crisis and the effects of hurricane Maria. The events in recent weeks will only make things harder at the Federal level going forward, but I am confident that together, the island can find ways to overcome these challenges. As the longest serving member of Congress of Puerto Rican descent, I will continue to fight on behalf of and stand up for the people of Puerto Rico- as I have done throughout my career.
