As residents of the US Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Puerto Ricans have US passports, can travel freely throughout the country and can serve in the military. But that doesn’t mean the US citizens who live in Puerto Rico get the same rights and benefits as US citizens stateside.

Watch the video above to understand how Puerto Rico became a US commonwealth, the tangled relationship that developed, and how it all affects prosperity and development on the island today.

This is b.s. explanation. PR is like the guy that drives around with no insurance, gets into an accident, and expects everyone to chip in to fix his car. Nahhhhh.

Puerto Rican residents shouldn't have to pay US Federal taxes. They don't have jobs and a lot of money, so they need the welfare from the US to help them live.

Funny how the Americans are doing taxation without representation
Babyface0603
Puerto Rican s pay federal taxes?? There has been referendums in the past, and Puerto Rico voted to be a commonwealth everytime. That's because they would to pay federal taxes if they became a state. Their governor complains of being treated "like 2nd class" citizens. Well, it's people voted against statehood.

Boríke was never a state and never will be!!
You can not get rich if it becomes a state!!

Everybody is talking here about "taxation without representation" but what we are forgetting is that puerto Rico does not really contribute anything. Puerto Rico is a big burden to the US since literally half of its citizens live off welfare. And lets not forget the extreme amount of corruption of its politicians.

They should Send MEXICANS over to rebuild the entire Island and their Lazy economy!

I see puerto ricans here wanting independence from US put they dont tell you that Independence movement in PR represent only 3% so stop giving the false illusion that many people in PR want it.

Puerto Rico était une autre province d'Espagne colonisée par les États-Unis, in raison de son businesssement à s'étendre.

Puerto Rico was another province of Spain colonized by the United States, because of its eagerness to expand.
