Puerto Rico wants to be a state of the U.S. A vote was taken, and two-thirds of the United States territory would like to just be a state. Puerto Rice has been having debt issues, and they would also like having financial support from the government. There are a million more Puerto Ricans in the United States then there are in Puerto Rico. The country already functions like the United States by using the dollar and U.S. passports, but the Puerto Rican delegates in Congress do not have a vote that counts. Puerto Ricans also do not have a vote in the election. If the entire country wants to become a part of the U.S., Obama said he would support it. This also needs Congress' approval.
