If statehood wins, as expected, the island will enact what’s known as the Tennessee Plan, an avenue to accession by which U.S. territories send a congressional delegation to demand to be seated in Washington.
Puerto Rico will send two senators and five representatives, chosen by Gov. Ricardo Rosselló (D), later this year, once the plan is put into action.

Statehood remains a long shot as many Republicans are wary of adding a 51st state that could add two Democratic senators and seven Democratic electors to the Electoral College.

For anyone speaking up: there is only opinions and innuendo's about Russian involvement, BUT in the recount, Detroit and numerous places had votes scanned in many many times, 10 X or more for each liberal vote, SO THEY COMMITTED VOTING FRAUD.

Team Hillary committed fraud, oops those naughty older machines!

So there is no russian involved, only that she lost and by way greater numbers than the official election results.

GLP is hypocritical.

years ago there was a thread about trucking and 59 states, including canada.

now you say puerto rico 51 state.

59 states, 51 state?

sure, take the puerto rico, and make california secede from the union. that equalizes the pressure.

“Colonialism is not an option for Puerto Rico,” Gov. Ricardo Rossello said. “It’s a civil rights issue … The time will come in which the United States has to respond to the demands of 3.5 million citizens seeking an absolute democracy.”

Backers say the referendum could help the island overcome a decade long economic crisis as it struggles to restructure nearly $70 billion in public debt and faces a federal control board pushing for more austerity measures.

If U.S. Congress ultimately were to approve Puerto Rico as the 51st state, the island could receive an additional $10 billion in federal funds a year and its government agencies and municipalities would be able to file for bankruptcy

wait?...so if a nation says...OUR PEOPLE VOTE TO BECOME AMERICAN'S...there considered a state?

If statehood wins, as expected, the island will enact what’s known as the Tennessee Plan, an avenue to accession by which U.S. territories send a congressional delegation to demand to be seated in Washington.
Puerto Rico will send two senators and five representatives, chosen by Gov. Ricardo Rosselló (D), later this year, once the plan is put into action.

Statehood remains a long shot as many Republicans are wary of adding a 51st state that could add two Democratic senators and seven Democratic electors to the Electoral College.

Please vote "NO" Puerto Rico. You have rejected offers of statehood many times, even as recent as 2012. The only reason they are trying again is the hope of getting bailed out of all the debt they have amassed.

No thanks Puerto Rico. Stay the way you are.

 Quoting: Just the facts 75042970


On November 18, 1997, the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico, through its ruling in Miriam J. Ramirez de Ferrer v. Juan Mari Brás, reaffirmed the standing existence of the Puerto Rican citizenship and, on October 25, 2006, Puerto Rican Socialist Party president Juan Mari Brás became the first person to receive a Puerto Rican citizenship certificate from the Puerto Rico Department of State.

Since 2007, the Government of Puerto Rico has been issuing "Certificates of Puerto Rican Citizenship" to anyone born in Puerto Rico or to anyone born outside of Puerto Rico with at least one parent who was born in Puerto Rico

HMM...
