STATEMENT BY REPRESENTATIVE LORETTA SANCHEZ ON HR 2499

“I am a proud co-sponsor of this bill because I believe it is unfair that although residents of Puerto Rico are U.S. citizens, they do not have voting representatives in Congress and are unable to cast a vote for President. This bill would help fix this injustice by respecting Puerto Ricans’ rights to self-determination and U.S. Representative Loretta Sanchez (CA-47): “I am a proud co-sponsor of this bill because I believe it is unfair that although residents of Puerto Rico are U.S. citizens, they do not have voting representatives in Congress and are unable to cast a vote for President. This bill would help fix this injustice by respecting Puerto Ricans’ rights to self-determination and providing them with meaningful participation in the future of their government.”
