Puerto Rico Gov. Pedro Pierluisi says in March he is expecting legislation to be introduced in Congress that would give statehood to Puerto Rico if passed.

Pierluisi was even quoted saying “what I anticipate is that there will be considerable support for a statehood bill in this Congress,”.

The three million U.S. citizens living in Puerto Rico can’t vote for president, have no senators, have one non-voting member in the House, and are treated unequally under federal law. A majority of Puerto Ricans voted for statehood. The federal government must respect that vote.
