Puerto Rico law students coming to finish their studies

Puerto Rico law students coming to finish their studies”

While attention is starting to shift toward Hurricane Nate, San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, and other areas of the island are still in recovery mode from Hurricane Maria.

No offers by creditors have been put in place and the government has not met with creditor groups on the proposals, Sobrino said, adding that communications remain a challenge on the island.

As of late last week, Miami-Dade County alone had already accepted about 12 new students.

The President's way of distinguishing between the government of Puerto Rico and the United States-when technically the Puerto Rican government is the us government-effectively captures the sentiment that Puerto Rico is not the same as Florida or Texas. The money will go towards up to seven months of what's termed "high-cost support" infrastructure to provide service to customers. He says the number of Puerto Ricans coming to the mainland, which recently has been about 60,000 people annually, could double or even triple in the coming year as these USA citizens seek the safety and health care they can't get on the island right now.

The Hillsborough school district also has about 27,000 vacant seats available, which can offset the effect incoming students will have on the classrooms and resources. "I found camping water-filters on Amazon and they were really affordable". Law school is challenging enough and these students are uprooting their lives to continue their studies. Schools there are preparing for the arrival of younger students, too.

That sentiment is echoed by the Hillsborough County school district.

There are calls for Puerto Rico's debt to be forgiven in the wake hurricane Maria. "Please stay over there", we heard one woman tell her daughter in Texas as they made phone contact for the first time since the hurricane.

Contact information for each district is posted here. Some question whether the deadline will be flexible or extended because of the uncertainty of how many students will be migrating to the local Tampa Bay region.

"If I need something I will let you know but we are OK".

The FCC will tap $76.9 million from the universal service fund (USF) for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. With these vessels, Foss will be able to help feed and temporarily house 729 people.
