Unlike anyone else who is allowed to vote in America should NOT be albe to do this?
Could this have anythibg to do with the fact that over 100,000 people from the island had to flee to the mainland of America because the Federal governemnt just didn’t get their act right in helping the American Island recover from a storm?
This guy probably can figure that those who do regicter to vote in Florida and other mainland states aren’t gonna be excitied about voting Republican, eh?
As reported by Politico on Tuesday, Republican congressional candidate John Wardmade the remark last week in response to a voter who asked about Puerto Ricans who have moved “either temporarily or permanently” to Florida: “How do you respond to them when they say that they need more help and that the aid to Puerto Rico is not enough?”
“First of all, I don’t think they should be allowed to register to vote,” Ward said. “And it’s not lost on me that, I think, the Democrat Party’s really hoping that they can change the voting registers in a lot of counties and districts. And I don’t think they should be allowed to do that.”
“We should be looking to put the Puerto Ricans back in their homes,” he added, per Politico. “So the idea that they can come to the mainland United States, I don’t necessarily have a problem with that. But I think we should be thinking about it in terms of getting them back home and providing the capital and resources to rebuild Puerto Rico, which I honestly think is where they belong.”….
