Puerto Rico Votes 62% For Statehood!

7 Nov

My people have spoken loudly and clearly that a definitive majority – 65% – are clamoring for Puerto Rico to pursue statehood! Now, I will pray every day that President Obama keeps his promise to  support the outcome of this referendum vote. And, the Republicans would be wise to follow suit if they want to begin rebuilding their current disastrous and dysfunctional relationship with my broader Latino community.

Puerto Ricans have been good Americans for 114 years now; politely waiting for their turn to be treated as equally as their fellow citizens. We are legal and loyal and our time has come. May the U.S. Congress, our President and all Americans finally give us the respect we have worked hard to earn lawfully, fairly and squarely. NEWYORICANGIRL
