"Puerto Rico’s problems are rooted in its status as U.S. territory"

"Hurricane Maria exacerbated many of the difficulties that Puerto Rico was already facing, including a long-running debt crisis, unemployment and housing shortage."

Check out this special edition of PBS NewsHour that focus on "the ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria and amid its debt crisis".

You can also watch the segment where Ivette Feliciano explains why many of those issues are rooted in the island’s status as a U.S. territory.
