Press Release

(Jersey City, N.J.) – Congressman Sires issued the following statement regarding  POTUS latest tweet about the Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico: 

"The Island of Puerto Rico and its residents have been faced with an unprecedented disaster with Hurricane Maria. The President's latest comments regarding the Mayor of San Juan are uncalled for. This is a humanitarian crisis and the people of Puerto Rico deserve every resource available by this Administration. 

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and all the residents of Puerto Rico are struggling tirelessly to cope with this disaster and they deserve our assistance not criticism. I will continue to fight for the residents of Puerto Rico along with my colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to make certain that they receive the needed resources during this difficult time."
