Puerto Rico Pros And Cons

124 Words1 Page
In a recent study, 61% of Puerto Rican voters were in favor of being recognized as an independent nation. Even though they are legal United State citizens, they have absolutely no voting rights, no federal medicare/medicaid rights, and no federal tax return rights. For this reason it is not right for Puerto Ricans to be looked at as imperfect citizens. In addition Puerto Rico has a member in Congress, and has completely no voting rights but is only there to express opinions. As of now the United States can deny access to Puerto Rico from any national law they choose because they are not a state. However they can reject laws that they do not agree with even though they are not a state.
