A New Year’s Resolution for Congress

The new Congress will be in place next week. We would like to propose a New Year’s resolution for them.

After more than a century, it is time to take action on Puerto Rico’s status. Puerto Rico, home to millions of U.S. citizens, should not be a territory. Puerto Rico should be a State with full citizenship rights, or an independent┬ánation, if that is the preference of the Puerto Rican people. Either way, it is time to provide Puerto Rico with a settled, permanent status. Statehood would put Puerto Rico on the path to peace and prosperity that the 50 States enjoy.

The United States should not own a colony in the 21st century.

Congress has the responsibility to settle the status of Puerto Rico. Remind your legislators of their responsibility.
