USA Invasion Of Puerto Rico

US Invasion of Puerto Rico. On 109th Anniversary of U.S. Invasion of Puerto Rico, Acclaimed Photojournalist Frank Espada and Poet Martin Espada Reflect on Ongoing Struggle for National Rights. On the 109th anniversary of the U.S. Invasion of Puerto Rico, debate continues over Puerto Rico's political independence and US military and corporate presence on the island. Puerto Ricans have had US citizenship since 1917, but residents of the island cannot vote for President and lack voting representation in the US Congress. We speak with two prominent Puerto Rican voices: photojournalist and activist Frank Espada has worked for decades documenting the Puerto Rican diaspora, as well as the civil rights movement in the United States. Martín Espada is Frank's son and an acclaimed poet and professor at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.

USA Invasion Of Puerto Rico Profiles Historic & History

Yes, we invaded Puerto Rico because it was a colony of Spain and we took it during the Spanish- American War in 1898. It was not 'free' even then. That said, they are entitled to their freedom if they want it, but they always vote to remain as they are, neither seeking statehood nor independence.

Rico Puerto Invasion USA

Most Caribbean nations struggle so the Puerto Ricans should be counting their blessings to be part of America and all that comes with it: protection, better education and facilities, etc. These things are not as developed in the other islands.

USA Invasion Of Puerto Rico

Well, it appears Puerto Rico chose statehood but with an abysmally low voter turnout. So, the question is now is the real since less the 25% of the voters voted? Also, it is up to Congress to approve this and I see little likelihood of this happening in the current political climate. Personally, I think Puerto Rico should be a state it her citizens (Which are also US citizens) want it. They have been a virtual part of the US for as long as Hawaii.
