The American citizens of Puerto Rico should have a say in determining if their territory becomes a state. If they opt for statehood, admitting Puerto Rico in 2025 allows time for a smooth transition.
The people of Puerto Rico shouldn’t be able to decide whether to become a state. The U.S. should either encourage Puerto Rico to remain a territory or to become its own nation.
