Which islanders in Puerto Rico will get a bigger slice of the pie?
It’s a debate that has raged for decades, but the Puerto Rican government is finally poised to give more than the island’s 2.3 million residents.
The island’s governor, Alejandro García Padilla, is expected to make the announcement Tuesday.
His administration is already looking at new ways to help residents of the United States territory.
Padilla is expected at a press conference with President Donald Trump at the White House, where he is expected a second time to offer an executive order on how to help Puerto Ricans.
“We want to be as inclusive as we can be and we want to work with the federal government,” Padilla said at the press conference.
“The United States of America is a land of immigrants.
The U.N. estimates that more than 4.8 million Puerto Ricas live on the U, with many in the U-S. “
This island is an integral part of the U.S. and Puerto Rico and we need to be heard in Washington.”

territory, or at least Puerto Rico, living without power or running water.
But many people in the island also face poverty, a lack of infrastructure, crime and disease, and long waits for medical care.
That’s the main reason the U government is asking Puerto Ricians to sign up to the National Guard.
The U-N estimates that 1.5 million of the islands population, or 30 percent of the population, is living below the poverty line.
But the U Congress is proposing to raise that figure to at least 4 million.
The plan would give Puerto Ricáans a $6.4 billion infusion, more than enough to help those in need but far below the total of $11.4 trillion the U has already allocated to Puerto Rico.
Padillas administration has been trying to convince Congress to pass a $1.2 trillion aid package for the island.
He’s also trying to sell the idea of helping residents with a tax on the island to attract more money.
“Puerto Rico’s been in a lot of pain.
The economy is struggling, the infrastructure is deteriorating, there’s a lot going on,” said Rep. Jose Luis Diaz-Balart, D-N.M., who was one of the leaders of the failed effort to increase the federal bailout for the U island.
“I don’t think that a Puerto Rican living in the United State can be denied the opportunity to pay taxes and get on the right track.”
