Оттуда за 13 лет уже сбежало более 10% населения, а теперь вал вообще не остановить. И никакая стена не поможет, там - американские граждане.
The island's slow recovery may exacerbate another problem Trump isn't talking about: An exodus of people off Puerto Rico and to places like Texas and Florida.
Over 400,000 Puerto Ricans have moved to the mainland United States since 2004, according to the Pew Research Center. Puerto Rico now has 3.4 million residents.
Many left because Puerto Rico suffers from high unemployment, rising taxes and few job opportunities outside of tourism.
Eyleen Gonzalez, the young woman who said she doesn't want to live on the only island she's ever called home, said she had been on the fence about applying for college in the mainland.
Maria made up Gonzalez's decision.
"I want to leave for the rest of my life," said Gonzalez. "I don't want to know anything about Puerto Rico."
