Re: Sam Erman

Sam Erman published the op-ed, "Devastation Without Representation in Puerto Rico" on colonial oppression of the territory. Under the Foraker Act of 1900, Puerto Ricans received no federal voting power, no U.S. citizenship and no guarantee of eventual statehood. This led to a gap between purported ideals of the United States and its treatment of Puerto Rico, Erman wrote."The 120-year epic tragedy of Puerto Rico can be told as a tale of two hurricanes. The one fresh in our memory is Maria, which reached Puerto Rico a year ago. The other was hurricane San Ciriaco in 1899, which devastated the island just after it became part of the United States. on colonial oppression of Puerto Rico."
