"Economic crisis the Puerto Rico faces that kind of attitude by the ruling class for so many years has brought about the huge debt Puerto Rican government has incur which surpasses seventy billion dollars and it's also you know th that itself and the fact that there is a a an overseen bore trying to make sure that the Puerto Rican government is more austere in the way uses funds <hes> in practice has meant a lot of pain for the for the Puerto Rican people people have lost their pensions and our people lost their jobs <hes> thousands of Puerto Rico so they passed to your four years have have had to to leave their homes <hes> and come to the up to the to the mainland to states like New York and Florida <hes> <hes> so what <hes> what we're seeing now is <hes> an exhaustion on the part of so many Puerto Ricans with the status quo which has been status quo of corruption <hes> and <hes> of negligence of the actual situation or the Puerto Ricans well. I mean we heard that clip from governor. Oh CEO on Fox saying he circulated with members of the White House a plan to battle corruption on the island but I wonder how our other elected officials in Puerto recall looking at this moment is there the possibility that Rossio could be pushed out by other branches of the government <hes> actually the consideration of CEO <hes> through an impeachment process which in Puerto Rico known as into <hes>. It's a political <hes> trial is already underway however there there is suspicion that the processes just to slow too cumbersome and that a lot of Puerto Rico so no winning to wait for the process to to take place so that's why you see all these demonstrate demonstrators <hes> asking Rossio to resign <hes> without further ado just to resign as soon as possible and and the other the other factor here is the people who essentially would be in charge of trying that everywhere to occur are members of his own party essentially because they control the Congress as well in Puerto Rico Danielle my last question for you then is is there a role or should there be a role for Washington <hes> in in in aiding or handling the situation on the island well. I think they're all the Washington so that he played a major role there we we as we understand we as as we understand that there is constant communication between members of Congress <hes> they're the Rosillo government <hes> whatever it is left of it and <hes> members of the opposition decision <hes> leaders in the Puerto Rican legislature just to make sure that they understand that unless unless there is a satisfactory re <hes> outcome in this <hes> <hes> predicament in Puerto Rico <hes> it will be very hard to justify <hes> the sending of assistance to Puerto Rico and and by the way but a Rico has only received fourteen billion dollars of forty two billion dollars have been promised to the island even though we know that sometimes the white my house isn't a habit of saying that more ninety million dollars have been having approved.

Five hundred thousand people asked came to leave so the messages loud and clear democracy is not something that you do once every four years.

They'll go back to jobs. They would just won't be able to come out every night anymore. <hes> until able to start a process of some kind of reconciliation when you talk to regular Puerto Ricans on the ground they laugh in your face when you say that <hes> They I don't see any shot at reconciliation they are planning to come out as often as they can with as many pots and pans and new chance as they can come up with and if they can't make it one night they're sending friends to go. <hes> there's really an informal social network here people who are sending around flyers that there quickly drafting up excel spreadsheets that I've received <hes> people are trying to keep each other updated every morning text or going out saying Oh..
