Guest: Charles Venator-Santiago, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science and El Instituto, University of Connecticut More than three months since Hurricane Maria hit the island and a third of Puerto Ricans are still without electricity. Many thousands have left for the mainland. And a clause in the Republican tax reform package could make economic recovery for Puerto Rico even more difficult. Charles Venator-Santiago is a native of Puerto Rico and a professor of political science and Latin American studies at the University of Connecticut where he’s leading several initiatives to support Puerto Ricans on the island and here on the mainland.
