The Puerto Rico Exodus 2.0

More residents are expected to flee Puerto Rico as the weeks roll by, because of inhuman conditions. Of all 50 states, the ones with the highest net inflow of Puerto Ricans moving there from the island of Puerto Rico looks like the following states will be targeted. They include Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland, mainly because these states have the highest Puerto Rican populations.Residents of these states will almost be taken by surprise, in an effort to keep a low profile and make sure that the assimilation process is integrated smoothly. The residents of the island had their livelihoods decimated and are looking for a fresh start on the mainland. Once integrated into their prospective future states and becoming residents of the states, they more than likely will be a strong voting block for the political parties that treat them with dignity.When this relocation shifts into full swing, the subject of medicinal services will be a noteworthy issue, particularly with the current official request issued by P.O.T.U.S. With the majority of the cataclysmic events influencing the United States right now, there is by all accounts a partnered push to keep up a position of safety around a convergence of new natives relocating to the U.S. The major news network report about the current situation in Puerto Rico but don’t go into detail about the migration that has already started, however some do in a minor way.

Tropical storm Maria, which has crushed Puerto Rico and left many thousands without power, comes at a troublesome time for the island. Reeling from a recession, Puerto Rico has suffered an infrastructure calamity, as its labor market shrinks and professionals flee to the mainland to find jobs. The island has lost more than 10 percent of its population to the mainland over the last decade, and what is to come is up in the air.Now, after Hurricane Maria, a lot of ATMs on the island are offline or out of cash, and many businesses are closed. The hurricane has left the Puerto Rican economy in shambles and will take years to gain some resemblance of normality. This means that unemployment is going to be a significant spiritual demon after the storm, Migration to the United States is the only viable option. The kids need schooling, a new job force will need training and retraining, and housing will become a precious comity.Currently close to 40,000 have made the journey and around 200,000 or more Puerto Ricans will move to the mainland by the next year. If the significant restructuring of the island is not made in a timely manner, the figure just quoted may escalate infinitely.Many of its young professionals like doctors, teachers, and engineers have already left. When they do, it’s a downward spiral for the economy. Individuals that were working in Puerto Rico at one point and are no longer working; this situation will create the loss of the islands tax revenue base in addition to the loss of their consumer input into the economy.Hurricane Maria was the worst thing that could have happened to Puerto Rico at the worst possible time. Case In Point: The San Juan airport is operating at a reduced capacity on the strength of dozens of generators, thousands of people are waiting to leave, and the standby lists for commercial flights are in the tens of thousands.Water, food, and fuel are scarce on the island, along with a source of income. Moody’s Analytics, a financial services firms, estimates the storm could cost Puerto Rico $45 billion to $90 billion which it does not have. The latest report from the Federal Communications Commission finds 88.8 percent of cell tower sites are still out of service. The cellular outage also means that family on the mainland, or abroad, can’t get in touch with those on the island to find out if they’re safe. During Hurricane Katrina, my family, other evacuees, and I had the same problem. It makes you feel totally isolated in a hi-tech age.

Puerto Rico’s government is poor. Its foundation is maturing and in dilapidation at best. What’s more, it can’t obtain cash to correct its situation. In May of 2017, Puerto Rico – which has a $103 billion economy – declared bankruptcy, and it has since then been trying to restructure more than $70 billion in debt. The island’s finances are currently controlled by a federal board, which made just $1 billion available for relief, the AP reports.Certain US approaches have added to Puerto Rico’s monetary decay. One of them is the Jones Act (not quite the same as the Jones-Shafroth Act which integrated the nation into The USA ), an out of date law that powers Puerto Ricans to pay about twofold for US merchandise through different duties, expenses, and assessments. The act stipulates that any goods shipped from one American port to another must be on American-made-and-operated ships.This entire act seems to be antiquated. Another way to describe the act is a shakedown squeeze, a horde assurance racket, with Puerto Rico a hostage for revolution and terror in America’s Colony. P.O.T.U.S. only suspended this Act for “10 Days because of complaints from the shipping industry. If certain situations are not corrected and fast many unaware US citizens will become mesmerized as Exodus 2.0 shifts into high gear.
