Trump is still refusing to release billions in aid to Puerto Rico

By

More than three dozen Democratic lawmakers wrote a letter to Housing Secretary Ben Carson on Monday, demanding to know why his agency is still refusing to release billions of dollars in aid to Puerto Rico that Congress has already approved.  

Congress approved $8.3 billion in aid for the U.S. commonwealth back in 2018, which was meant to be used on  "mitigation" activities to lessen the impact of future natural disasters. 

In 2017, Peurto Rico was rocked by Hurricane Maria, which left 2,975 dead and devastated the island's infrastructure.
