Andria Tupola on Civil Rights
Give same rights to American Samoans living here
The proposed disqualification of House candidate Timoteo is raising questions about the policies that bar American Samoan citizens living in the U.S. from voting and running for office. Tupola says�that Timoteo should be allowed to run.
The state says Timoteo is ineligible because as a citizen of American Samoa she's considered a U.S. national and not a U.S. citizen. "They're called American Samoans, but yet they have less rights than other American citizens," Tupola�said.
