AOC Finds Political Center in Puerto Rico?

The Republican Party Platform supports democratic self-determination for 3.2 million U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico.

The Democratic Party Platform and the current field of Democrat presidential candidates also support a democratic choice by Americans in Puerto Rico if the people want to pursue statehood or nationhood.

That bipartisanship exists because it is clear Congress was wrong to leave Puerto Rico in political limbo for a century. The U.S. needs to enable Americans in the territory to choose statehood or nationhood, replacing the current failed “commonwealth” regime of territorial government.

Supporting a democratic status choice on terms approved by Congress has become a centrist political position for the White House and the majority in Congress. Washington realized it failed for too long to move forward on self-determination or terms for transition to statehood or nationhood. Even still, federal leaders would continue to stick its head in the sand, if there weren’t 5.5. million Americans with roots in Puerto Rico living in the 50 states of the union.
