Puerto Rico has been a possession of the United States for more Ethan a century. Residents of Puerto Rico are citizens of the United States if they were born on the Island or in a. state, nand they pay many of the same taxes people living in the states do. Yet they do not receive the full benefits of citizenship, they are not protected by the U.S. Constitution, and they cannot vote in presidential elections. They are not represented by any senators and the entire island of more than 3 million U.S. citizens has just one non-voting representative in the House.
Join us in our efforts to bring equal rights to Puerto Rico through statehood.
