WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

Book - 12-10

In the same week – practically on the same day – all three branches of the US government attacked the island of Borinquen, under the guise of “helping Puerto Rico.”

The US Congress, US Supreme Court, and Pres. Obama all acted with perfect timing and coordination, to kick Puerto Rico into submission. Here is how they did it… 

THE US CONGRESS

On June 9, the US Congress voted by a wide margin (297-127) to pass the PROMESA bill which creates a Financial Control Board in Puerto Rico.

The bill also enables a lower minimum wage of $4.25, for newly-hired young workers in Puerto Rico. This will be the lowest minimum wage – by far – in the entire US.

THE US SUPREME COURT 

On that same day of June 9, the US Supreme Court announced a 6-2 majority decision in Puerto Rico v. Sanchez Valle.
