Antonio Contreras Loida Lewis
On the official Facebook page of Loida Nicolas Lewis, this statement was written:

At least one out of every eight Filipinos lives overseas. Our remittances are a major boost for the Philippine economy. Just because we are Overseas Filipinos (OFs) does not mean that we have lost our right to be involved in or speak out on developments in our home country.

Like myself, many of us are dual citizens and therefore retain our full rights as Filipinos. It is therefore wrong to disparage or demean comments from overseas Filipinos. We have a right, even a duty, to be involved in our homeland and participate as much as we can in its politics.

Love of country is not limited to those who reside in the Philippines. A waiter on a cruise ship in the Caribbean, an accountant working with a New York City firm, a nurse caring for patients in the suburbs of London — we are all a part of the greater Philippine nation. Many of us had to leave our country to earn a living for ourselves and our families back home, but we did not leave behind our rights as Filipinos. Nor did we leave behind our love for our fellow countrymen. We always try to give back to the motherland as we are able.

As for me, I founded The Lewis College in my hometown of Sorsogon, which is offers low and affordable tuition for college in the Bicol Region, and about 25% of those in College are on scholarship.

It is in that spirit of caring and brotherhood that we speak out on developments in the Philippines. We will continue to do so because if we did not, we would be untrue to who we are: Filipinos, like you.

Political analyst and De La Salle Professor Antonio Contreras in a Facebook post, shared Lewis' statement on the #LeniLeaks issue and captioned it with:

Statement of Loida Nicolas Lewis.

See. She is not denying the existence of #LeniLeaks. She is justifying it.
Commenters on Contreras' post also shared their sentiments over the issue by telling:

I'm from Los Angeles and I'm pretty sure that someone like Loida doesn't represent me or my best interest.
Hers is of politically vested self interests and does not represent any of our OFWs.
Love of country is not limited to the yellowshits just because you are rich does not make your decisions for the country absoluite and inviolable because your right are our rights too and one of these right is to choose the right President to lead the country so don't tell us what to do please Loida Nicolas Lewis!
