Puerto Rico is NOT Becoming a State
Or, at least not now.
The referendum on Puerto Rican ballots asked if they would like to maintain their current relationship with the United States. 53 percent did not want to continue the current political relationship. Another question asked those who chose this option what kind of relations they would favor; 65 percent favored statehood, 4 percent wish for independence, and 31 percent for “sovereign free association” (which would grant greater autonomy, but not independence).
