Puerto Rico Votes to Become 51st State

From Associated Press:

th-flagsPuerto Rico’s governor announced that the U.S. territory has overwhelmingly chosen statehood in a nonbinding referendum Sunday held amid a deep economic crisis that has sparked an exodus of islanders to the U.S. mainland.

Nearly half a million votes were cast for statehood, more than 7,600 for free association/independence and nearly 6,700 for the current territorial status, according to preliminary results. The participation rate was just 23 percent with roughly 2.26 million registered voters, leading opponents to question the validity of a vote that several parties had boycotted.

The economic crisis in Puerto Rico is the main driver here.

Puerto Ricans are fleeing the island nation at an alarming rate and it’s making their economic situation even worse.

Obviously, joining the United States would help that.

It would be great for them. Not sure how great it would be for the USA.

  1. Their people have left the island at an alarming rate since as far back as I can remember! [despite all the money we ship there]. The only thing that stopped them from voting for it before was they would now have to pay income tax.

  2. Hispanics of all types are by and large anti-white protestant and know that they are being used to rob and supplant white christian America for the Zionist/Jesuit elite. This is the real reason for making third world cesspool nations like Puerto Rico a part of American statehood.
