As the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico worsens, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz made an impassioned plea for aid on Friday.
“I am asking the President of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives,” Cruz said expressing her frustration with FEMA. “They were up to the task in Africa when Ebola came over, they were up to the task in Haiti -- as they should be, because when it comes to saving lives we are all apart of one community of shared values.
Cruz continued, "I will do what I never thought I was going to do, I am begging. Begging anyone that can hear us to save us from dying.”
