Blumenthal, Puerto Rican community call for long-term recovery plan


United States Senator Richard Blumenthal is fighting to keep 21 Puerto Rican families in emergency housing here in Connecticut.

President Donald Trump had ordered an end to housing aid, which a federal judge temporarily blocked over the weekend.

However, Senator Blumenthal says the families’ lives are still in limbo.

Blumenthal will call on the Trump administration to commit to a long-term recovery and rebuilding for Puerto Rico at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning in Hartford. He will be joined by members of the Connecticut Puerto Rican community.
