Statement on Oscar Lopez & The Puerto Rico Parade

Last year, Oscar Lopez’s sentence was commuted by President Obama after years of being held as a political prisoner. Because of his ties with FALN I do not support the Puerto Rico Parade honoring him. However, I respect the parades’ representatives in their stance but I believe that the true focus of the parade should be on the current economic crisis that Puerto Rico is facing instead of a person who people are divided on.
