Jun 11 - Puerto Rico votes for statehood and will request to be the 51st State of the U.S.

Puerto Rico voted overwhelmingly in favor of statehood on Sunday in a referendum that begins the steps toward sending representatives to Washington, D.C.

According to the Wall Street Journal, 97 percent voted for statehood, though turnout was only about 23 percent. One and a half percent voted for independence from the United States, according to Decision Desk HQ, while 1.3 percent voted to keep the current status of a territory of the United States.

Puerto Rico will now put its "Tennessee plan" into action, meaning its governor will choose two senators and five representatives to go to Washington, D.C., to request statehood.
President Trump signaled during his presidential campaign that he is open to Puerto Rico officially becoming a state.

Puerto Rico previously voted in favor of becoming a state in 2012, but statehood opponents said the voter turnout was not high enough to accurately reflect will of the Puerto Rican people. Some fear that they will make the same case this time around.

they're just trying to get their benefits without all that other sh*t involved. If this passes, i can see them acting like Cubans in Florida.

They need to keep the country pure imo way too many races with different cultures that don't mix.
What would make the country pure ? Need your point of view

Happily trade Mississippi for Peurto Rico

They already pay some federal taxes, get federal welfare from us, etc. All this does is give them American voting rights, representatives in congress/senate and actually adds more taxes coming in because they dont pay individual federal income taxes right now.

Not really seeing the drawback for either side here.

Nah. An extra star on the flag wouldn't be a good look. They all fit perfectly as is.

How, when that same mix makes up literally 90% of Latin and South American counties?

Didn't a lot of Latinos vote for Trump? You think Republicans would pass up the opportunity to easily gain more minority voters especially in the predicament PR in?
