There is a joke going around the internet, that Puerto Rico has finally become the 51st. State of the Union and that Congress passed legislation providing for the admission of Puerto Rico as the 51st. state.
No, Puerto Rico is not a State, not yet anyway. This is a joke going around for April fools day! I hope you were not fooled!
Puerto Ricans will vote on a plebiscite in November, that will decide whether Puerto Ricans would like Puerto Rico to become a State. This is true, not an April fools joke. In November we will find out what the future has in store for Puerto Rico.
