      "According to a recent Pew Report, Puerto Ricans are abandoning the besieged island for the United States in numbers that rival those seen during the Great Migration after World War II, when Puerto Rico exported almost half of its population to the mainland.

      The report estimated that between 2000 and 2013, the island’s population decreased by more than 200,000 people, the first sustained population decline and outmigration since becoming a territory of the U.S.

      The festering colonial status, a crumbling economy, a government $72 billion in debt with a deficit of $3.6 million, an 11.5 percent sales tax and a soaring crime rate are fueling this present-day diaspora.

      The situation became worse this week when Puerto Rico’s governor, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, announced via an interview with The New York Times that the debt was “not payable,” plummeting the island’s bonds.

      But the main reason Puerto Ricans are leaving: an unemployment rate of almost 15 percent. Jobs on the island are virtually hard to find.

      Fortaleza, the commonwealth’s government, did not respond to several requests seeking comment.

      “The modern diaspora, in my opinion, is the desperate departure of the professional class from the island because they can’t find a job,” said Jabneel Diaz Rivera, 36, a television producer that left the island for Miami two years ago.

      She said even people with jobs are second-guessing things like whether they should turn on the air conditioner at night because they worry whether they can pay their electric bill.

      Carla Minet, director of Puerto Rico’s Center for Investigative Journalism, described this diaspora as the new normal.

      There are so many people leaving the island, in fact, that there are now more Puerto Ricans living on the mainland than on the island itself.

      “As of now, I do not visualize returning to live in Puerto Rico. I have visited twice since I moved away and sincerely, I see no progress,” said Meryland Cuevas, 40, a motivational speaker and life coach. “In my last visit, I felt like I was visiting a picturesque print that was stuck in time. The places close to where I lived in Santurce, they were the same as when I left them, the same decadence.”

      “We constantly see how professionals and young, productive people of the island leave unfinished dreams behind to start anew in the ‘Land of the Free’.”

      Manny Suarez, 57, a lawyer who still lives in Puerto Rico, said there have been no riots on the island like you see on the streets of Spain or Greece, two countries that have seen bankruptcy on the face. He said that’s because of the island’s easy access to the mainland.

      “…Puerto Ricans can get on a plane and leave the island for the United States. In this pressure cooker, that is the safety valve,” he said.

      Many people, he said, have packed up their stuff and moved their life to the U.S. “If that were not a possibility, we would be looking at a full-fledged revolution,” he said."

        Have been to many parts of the world and lived there. If you have money can keep a roof over your head keep food on the table and have a car you can live any where ..and a lot cheaper that in the US. Puerto Rico has casinos perfect weather year round and in my opinion the friendliest people i have ever encountered. My only objection is that i am a big time foodie and you better get used to pork and chicken for the rest of your life. The one butcher shop in San Juan that had Prime Beef closed down last year. so will not be going back this winter. Spent 4 winters there almost 4 months each time kinda like you and vegas . Fact even posted a few winners at MJ's from my house. Now do you want me to get into a narrative about what a miserable place the US has become for a huge number of people !

                          Interesting perspective, would have thought seafood would be a big part of the diet....

                          Vegas has been fun for the serious "foodie" in me,un-paralleled choices, the gambling is a plus, but (other than the sports betting) can be matched most anywhere where Indians thrive and sports betting on-line.

                          The Vegas shopping, and the pleasant mid-winter weather has been the big draw for my wife.

                          Went to the North Premium Mall yesterday, they have added a new wing of stores.
                          I have traveled the world fairly extensively in past years and it was interesting to hear Italian, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, being spoken from the crowds of foreign visiting shoppers.

                          (Amazing the amount of stuff they buy, saw a couple stuffing newly bought suitcases bought next door,with a small mountain of stuff purchased at the Nike store.)

                          Vegas is still a golden destination of choice by many, the cash cow known as the strip offers a unique adult escape adventure, for a price.


                          As far as real daily life in Vegas away from the strip, Vegas and its many temptations, over the years, has ground many people into absolute dirt.

                          Daily, I see far too many people pushing shopping carts with their meager belongings,people begging in traffic, and people sleeping under bridges or wandering aimlessly.
                          Areas the strip tourist never dreams exists in opulent Vegas.

                          Its the very LAST place that a young family man needs to live, the many temptations are far, far too great.
