Just like Puerto Rico



Puerto Rico Wants to Become the 51st State of the US



BBC News, November 7, 2012






Voters in Puerto Rico have supported a non-binding referendum to become a full US state.

The measure will require approval from the US Congress, but President Barack Obama has said he will respect the vote.

The island is currently a US territory, which uses the dollar and whose citizens travel on US passports.

But it does not return senators to the US Congress and is represented in Washington by a non-voting delegate.

Almost 80% of the island’s electorate took part in the referendum, the fourth in the past 45 years.

With almost all the votes counted, almost 54% voted to change the island’s relationship with the US.

And in reply to a second question on what future they favoured, nearly two-thirds wanted full statehood.

If Congress grants its approval, Puerto Ricans would have the right
to vote in all US elections, but would also have to pay federal taxes,
something at present they are excused from.

The island came under US control in 1898 when Spain lost the island at the end of the Spanish-American war.

Ties were strengthened in 1917 when Puerto Ricans became US citizens and were allowed to serve in the military.

‘No other option’

There are now almost a million more Puerto Ricans in the US than on the island.

Supreme Court judge Sonia Sotomayor, singer Jennifer Lopez and the
former jazz musician Tito Puente are all of Puerto Rican descent, though
all three were born in New York.

Ties between the island and the mainland are strong and many on the
island considered it inevitable that a full union be requested.

A young voter in the capital San Juan, Jerome Lefebre, said: “Puerto Rico has to be a state. There is no other option.

“We’re doing okay, but we could do better. We would receive more benefits, a lot more financial help.”

But that opinion was rejected by Ramon Lopez de Azua: “Puerto Rico’s problem is not its political status.

“I think that the United States is the best country in the world, but I am Puerto Rican first.”

The island has been hit hard by the current recession—it has debts of $68bn (£42bn) and unemployment is more than 13%.

President Barack Obama, who visited the island last year, has said he
will respect the will of Puerto Ricans if there is a clear majority.

Any change would require approval by the US Congress, but no
territory has ever been denied a petition for admission to the States.

What a garbled, convoluted, and totally unintelligible article! Just highlights to me that translation software has a long way to go, and why we should NOT be relying on it for any serious analysis of what is going on in Iraq, particularly any attempt at in-depth analysis of our investment.

w/regard to what Neno posted, I would have expected better from the BBC w/regard to getting its facts straight - but then again, that seems to be a lost art in the "news" today; to wit:

"The island is currently a US territory, which uses the dollar and whose citizens travel on US passports."

Wrong! Puerto Rico is a US Commonwealth nation (the only one we have AFAIK); the relationship is tighter than being merely a territory. I would have expected the Brits to know this, as they have a Commonwealth of their own. This is hardly the first time they have had this particular vote in Puerto Rico. It has happened multiple times in the past with the result usually that they vote to remain a Commonwealth, vice Statehood or Independence (the independence vote is usually in the 2-3% range with the other two options coming out nearly split). If given the option of only Statehood or Indpendence, Puerto Rico would vote for statehood, which apparently they have.

Fine. I have no objections to Puerto Rico becoming a state - as long as the folks in DC don't decide that in order to "balance" the number of stars in the flag, we need to make Washington DC a state as well.
