Obama will back Puerto Rico Statehood…..

As if the President doesn’t have enough to deal with…..( Well he will get props from the Statehood crowd in PR and NY )

The White House gets into this one…

The House has approved a vote for Puerto Rican’s…..The Senate needs to vote out a bill next..


President Obama is open to the idea of Puerto Rico becoming a state, Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli said at a meeting of a task force devoted to issues related to the U.S. commonwealth.

“The president strongly believes that the status question is a significant one” Perrelli said at this week’s meeting of the President’s Puerto Rico Task Force. “He also believes that Puerto Rico’s status must be based on self-determination by the people of Puerto Rico. And we on the task force are here with open minds on this issue.”

Perrelli co-chairs the task force and attended on behalf of the administration. His complete remarks can be read here.
