Gov. Andrew Cuomo: “We Treat Puerto Ricans Like Second-Class America

New York-Governor Andrew Cuomo said the Federal Government is treating Puerto Ricans like “second-class Americans.” 

Cuomo made those comments on CNN early Sunday when he called in to discuss the hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.

“It all starts with power. If you don’t have power, pumps don’t operate and people can’t operate equipment to clean their home,” said Cuomo.

“It’s very hard to get the society up and running until you have the power restored. There was no reason for this to take 36 days.”

It has been more than five weeks without power in Puerto Rico.
