Puerto Rico is closer to statehood than ever before. The people of Puerto Rico voted for statehood in November 2012. The White House declared that the results were clear. The U.S. government has historically and repeatedly expressed a commitment to support the choice of the Puerto Rican people regarding the possible status options for the Island.
The Governor of Puerto Rico has delayed the process. The United States has been criticized once again by the United Nations Special Committee on Decolonization for having a colony.
