Más de 100 Funcionarios Electos Urgen Congreso para
Permitir la Reorganización de la Dueda Puertoriqueña

El presidente de El Bronx Rubén Díaz Jr. ha enviado una carta, junto a más de 100 funcionarios electos de todo el país, exigiendo una acción inmediata del Congreso para pasar una legislación que permita a la isla de Puerto Rico entrar en bancarrota.

"Los intereses de la comunidad puertorriqueña, ya sean en Puerto Rico, Nueva York, Nueva Jersey, California, Illinois, Pensilvania, Ohio, Florida o en cualquier otro lugar, son intereses estadounidenses. El Congreso tiene la obligación de actuar y aprobar una legislación que permita modificar el código federal de bancarrota, para proporcionar a Puerto Rico y a sus autoridades acceso a la protección de bancarrota Capítulo Nueve," dice la carta.

La magnitud de la deuda del Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico y las autoridades asociadas a la deuda se encuentran en un momento crítico. La falta de atención del Congreso a esta crisis representa una amenaza significativa no sólo para la economía de Puerto Rico, sino tambien para la economía de Estados Unidos.

"Estoy agradecido de mis colegas a través de los Estados Unidos que  entienden la necesidad de una acción federal inmediata para enfrentar la crisis de la deuda de Puerto Rico," dijo el presidente del condado  Díaz Jr. "Voy a seguir trabajando con mis camaradas para abogar por una solución a la abrumadora crisis fiscal que encara la isla."
