Conservative Leaders To Press For Puerto Rican Statehood

Former Governor Luis Fortuno Among Speakers at D.C. Press Conference Tuesday

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, a leading voice for Latinos, will hold a press conference on Tuesday, January 29 to announce a new initiative to encourage conservatives to support Puerto Rican statehood, which will include educational forums, advocacy in Congress and grassroots events. The group of conservative leaders will call on Congress to pass legislation to allow the people of Puerto Rico to decide their political future among non-territorial and constitutionally valid options.

WHO:  Former Governor Luis Fortuno (R-PR) Grover Norquist, President, Americans for Tax ReformDr. Richard Land, President, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission Southern Baptist ConventionNiger Innis, National Spokesman, Congress of Racial Equality Dr. Hernan Padilla, Former Mayor of San Juan, PR Alfonso Aguilar, Executive Director, Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles

WHAT:  Press conference announcing education campaign on Puerto Rican statehood  

WHERE: National Press ClubFourth Estate Restaurant529 14 th St. NW Washington, DC

WHEN: Tuesday, January 299:30 a.m. ET 

"For almost a century, Congress has denied the citizens of Puerto Rico their full constitutional rights," said Alfonso Aguilar, Executive Director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles. "They cannot vote for the president that can send their children to war and they don't have adequate and proportional representation in Congress.  This goes against the most very basic principles of our founding and every constitutional conservative should oppose this undemocratic arrangement.  Ronald Reagan understood this and that's why he strongly supported statehood for Puerto Rico."  

The Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles promotes conservative values and ideals within the Latino community and works to integrate Latinos into fuller and more active participation and leadership in the conservative movement. It is an initiative of The American Principles Project, a 501(c)(3) organization.
