Cartas al Congreso – Únete al Esfuerzo

Saludos;
La lucha del pueblo puertorriqueño por alcanzar la estadidad ha tenido muchos frentes, desde plebiscitos, manifestaciones multitudinarias tanto en Washington como en la isla, cabildeo, reuniones en Washington, apoyo y alianzas con gobernadores de otros estados, representantes, senadores y hasta presidentes de ambos partidos nacionales.US-congress-logo 2
Los invito a que se unan y promuevan la gestión para dejarle saber a los miembros del Congreso que tienen el futuro de Puerto Rico en sus manos, nuestro reclamo de Igualdad plena para los ciudadanos americanos que residen en Puerto Rico. Es imperativo que llevemos un plan organizado para comunicarnos con los miembros del Senado y convencerlos de que apoyen el HR2000 que ya tiene el coauspicio de 135 Congresistas
Este esfuerzo consiste en escribirles al Congresista Doc Hastings, (quien preside el Comité Recursos Naturales del Congreso que tiene a su cargo el proyecto) por medio de cartas por correo, emails o algún otro tipo de mensajes para dejarle saber nuestro sentir y pedirle apoyo a nuestra petición. Es hora que someta el HR 2000 a vistas públicas y que descarguen el mismo para consideración y votación de la Cámara de representantes.
No hay mejor información que la que ellos recibirán del pueblo puertorriqueño directamente. Contamos contigo!
Hernán Padilla, MD
Presidente de Igualdad
Favor de enviar la carta al Congresista Doc Hastings a las siguientes direcciones de e-mail:
Gracias!

Dear Hon Doc Hastings:

Igualdad, Futuro Seguro is an independent, autonomous, nonsectarian and nonpartisan organization with active members throughout the Nation, committed to informing, educating and advocating for the right of the American citizens of Puerto Rico to become FULL American citizens, with all-encompassing rights and responsibilities, through Puerto Rico’s admission as the 51st State of the Nation.

In line with our mission, together with our Resident Commissioner Pedro Pierluisi and other key players in the quest for equality for the territory, we advocated for “The Puerto Rico Status Resolution Act – HR 2000”,  introduced and cosponsored by, Mr. Pierluisi (for himself, Mr. Hoyer, Mr. Young of Alaska, Mr. Serrano, Mr. King of New York, Mr. George Miller of California, Ms. Ros-Lehtinen, Ms. Wasserman Schultz, Mr. Rangel, Mr. Waxman, Ms. Kaptur, Mr. Engel, Mr. Faleomavaega, Ms. Norton, Ms. Brown of Florida, Mr. Mica, Mr. Hastings of Florida, Mr. Fattah, Mr. Kind, Mr. Crowley, Mr. Díaz-Balart, Mr. Grijalva, Ms. Bordallo, Mr. Ellison, Ms. Castor of Florida, Ms. Fudge, Mr. Schock, Mr. Sablan, Mr. Deutch, Mr. Polis, Mr. Grayson, Ms. Wilson of Florida, Mr. García, and Ms. Shea-Porter. as of today the bill have 135 sponsors in the house from both sides of the alley.

As you well know, HR 2000 a historical landmark ̶ outlines the rights and responsibilities of Statehood for the Island, and provides for a federally-sponsored vote on its admission as a State of the Nation. Said bill acknowledges the will of the people in the territory of Puerto Rico, as clearly spoken by a 54% vote in rejection of its current relationship with the Nation, plus a 61% vote in favor of equality through the granting of Statehood to the territory.

As American citizens we understand that 116 years as a territory is long enough for Puerto Rico, and that there is nothing more democratic and more American in front of the Nation and the whole world than putting the question to its people to democratically ratify their will in the “one man one vote” format.

We expect and request from you no less than the same solidarity and support showed by the other 130 of your colleagues. Please do the right thing for the American citizens in the island and bring forward the HR 2000 to the floor as a whole. Your attention and support to this bill is critical to grant Puerto Rico with the long time deserved right and moral imperative to choose once and for all a final status from constitutionally validated options.

Sincerely,

Saludos, Rafael
Siguiendo tu sugerencia he procedido seguidamente a enviar cartas a todos los senadores, inclusive felicitaciones a los autores de la medida S.2020.  También envié carta al Vice-Presidente Biden en su función como Presidente del Senado.
Te estoy enviando copia de las cartas.  También te envio copia de carta enviada al Hon. Juez Torruella sobre su Pronunciamento de Harvard del mes pasado.  Ellas se explican por si sola.
Congratulaciones por tus continuos esfuerzos; espero comentarios.
Adelante, siempre adelante
Renato

Office of Senator (Hon. Nombre del Senador)

United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator (llene el Nombre del legislador),

Thank you and your staff for honorably serving the nation. This letter is regarding the Status Plebiscite that took place in the Territory of Puerto Rico last November and to ask for your support of the Puerto Rico Status Resolution – Act HR2000,  presented on May 15th, 2013 by Rep. Pedro Pierluisi D-PR.  Last November 6th of 2012, the U.S. Citizens of Puerto Rico where asked to decide in a two step plebiscite the future of their Commonwealth’s relationship with the U.S. This plebiscite enjoyed local bipartisan support, especially from the Governor, Hon. Luis Fortuno Burset (R), Senate President, Hon. Thomas Rivera Schatz (R) and House Speaker, Hon. Jenifer Gonzalez (R). It also enjoyed a high voter’s turnout of around 80%.  The first question asked the Voter, “Do you agree that Puerto Rico should continue to have its present form of territorial status, Yes or No”. By 54% the voters choose NOT to continue its present form of Territorial status.

The Commonwealth had lost the Consent of its Citizens.  The Commonwealth option cannot be a future option due to its colonial and territorial nature.  The ballot when on to specified.  “Regardless of your selection in the first question, please mark a preference among the three non-territorial alternatives: Statehood, Independence or Free Association”.  By a margin of 61% the U.S. Citizens of Puerto Rico choose Statehood.  It showed that the U.S Citizens of the Territory of Puerto Rico recognize that a change is needed and requested a permanent relationship with the United State of America as the 51st State.

It is our duty to uphold our American democratic ideals. The case of Puerto Rico limited federal representation is a civil rights issue. The U.S. Citizens of Puerto Rico have earned their right for federal representation and presidential vote with their service and sacrifice in every U.S. war since 1917. They have fought bravely by volunteering or being drafted in Active duty, Reserves and Puerto Rico National Guard units. They have served honorably for a Federal Government in which they cannot elect their own representatives in Congress or their own Commander in Chief. To add insult to injury, the residents of the Territory are continuously affected by federal laws for which they have no influence or input during their approval in Congress. Could you imagine if this was the day to day reality in our local District?  I am against the unjust political treatment of my fellow citizens residing in Puerto Rico. I demand that the Congress approves legislation in order to grant the voting Equality that the U.S. Citizens of Puerto Rico have already earned.

It is absurd that the United States is willing to send our servicemen to foreign wars in the name of freedom or to spread democracy, while at the same time denying full federal representation and voting rights to 3.5 million U.S. Citizens in the Territory of Puerto Rico.

Therefore I demand:

(1) Congress approves without delay, the Adoption of H.R. 2000: Puerto Rico Status Resolution Act.

(2) That Congress take immediate action to address this issue, and 

(3) That members of Congress vote in favor of the proposed Act, thus supporting the will of the people of Puerto Rico, as freely and democratically expressed in the plebiscite held on November 6th, 2012.

Many conservatives groups have pointed the adoption of English as a requirement to admit the Territory as a State.  English has been a great point of discussion when debating the admittance of the U.S. Territory of Puerto Rico as a new State, yet this need not be so. What some members of Congress might not yet know is that English is already by Law an official language in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico since February 23rd, 1902.  The status of English as an official language was re-confirmed by the State Legislature, when it passed Law 1-1993 that declares English along with Spanish as the official languages to be used by the Government of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.  It is a fact that English is taught in every level of public, private and graduate educational systems in the Territory.

I hope that you, as a member of Congress will join the effort to support the referendum’s clear results, and let freedom ring for the close four million U.S. citizens living in the Territory. I am thankful for your time and hope you will respond to my letter.

Should you or your staff have any question regarding Puerto Rico Statehood you can contact Rep. Pedro Pierluisi D-PR at (202) 225-2615, Fax: (202) 225-2154, 1213 Longworth HOB, Washington, DC 20515. You can also contact The Chairman of the  Young Democrats of America – Hispanic Caucus  and President of the Young Democrats of America for the Puerto Rico chapter, Mr. Phillip Arroyo at (787) -220-0438.  Again, I am grateful for your time and service in congress.

Sincerely,

(SU FIRMA)
