For Immediate Distribution:
Puerto Rico is a United States Territory
Puerto Ricans do not immigrate to the United States; they are citizens of the United States.
Being a Puerto Rican is the same as being a New Yorker, or a Floridian, even if you don’t speak English.
It is unbelievable that a territory that is featured on the new US quarters for 2009, and whose people have been citizens of the US since 1917, still has to be identified as being part of the country. They had a Presidential primary last year, for crying out loud.
Update: That wingnuts in Tennessee don’t know about the status of Puerto Ricans is sad, but that the Washington Post has to issue a correction for an editorial shows the level of ignorance in the “Village”.
