Puerto Rico to join the US as the 51st state?
As I understand it Puerto Rico is a state in the US commonwealth in which the population are American citizens, pay federal taxes, has congress representatives and can join as the 51st state if they so chose.
I would be very interested to hear peoples thoughts and opinions about why or why not Puerto Rico should join the US fully.
Would it serve a purpose, or is there no reason to change the status of Puerto Rico?
