  1. And they’ve voted to become an official state but congress won’t let them bc that means they’d have to be represented and add senators/house reps and it will shift the numbers.

  2. Glad you brought that up but I do find it amazing at this point that so many do not know or want to know this, especially when something like a hurricane happens and Puerto Ricans desperately need help from “their” government.

  3. Traveling from Puerto Rico to the United States is easy but a lot of travelers forget to exchange their Puerto Rican currency for United States money. I have a business that will exchange Puerto Rican cash for American funds. I will buy your Puerto Rican dollars for 50¢, no limit. My website is PuertoCash.org.com/edu
