Puerto Rico’s new Gov. Ricardo Rossello vows to push for statehood
Puerto Rico’s new governor was sworn in Monday, vowing an urgent push for statehood to cure its “colonial condition” at the root of a dire economic crisis.

Gov. Ricardo Rossello, 37, proposed several measures aimed at alleviating the crisis shortly after he was sworn in at midnight. Among them is a proposal to hold a referendum that would ask voters whether they prefer statehood or independence.

Many argue that Puerto Rico’s political status has contributed to its decade-long crisis that has prompted an exodus of 200,000 people fleeing to the U.S. mainland in recent years.

“The United States cannot pretend to be a model of democracy for the world while it discriminates against 3.5 million of its citizens in Puerto Rico, depriving them of their right to political, social and economic equality under the U.S. flag,” Rossello said in his inaugural speech, delivered in Spanish. “There is no way to overcome Puerto Rico’s crisis given its colonial condition.”

This will push the Democrats and their Marxist anti-white agenda into a permanent majority. :(

You'd be surprised. Most Puerto Ricans I know voted for Trump. Plenty feel neglected by the Democrats after Obama said he was for statehood if that's what the people on the island voted for. Pro statehood won and then Obama said it didn't win by enough so he forgot all about it.

I think Trump was pro statehood before and him continuing to be pro statehood will do a lot to the idiots that say he is racist against all Hispanics. I also think it'd get a lot of loyal voters to the Republican party seeing as the new governor is Republican.
