THBT Puerto Rico should seek independence rather than statehood
Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States. Puerto Ricans enjoy freedom of movement between the Island and the mainland, but as it is not a state, Puerto Rico does not have a vote in the US Congress or the Senate, which govern the territory with full jurisdiction anyway. If you live in Puerto Rico, you cannot vote for President or Vice President. Although the predominant movement seeks to obtain statehood, an alternative movement that wants Puerto Rico to become an independent nation also exists.
