Puerto Ricans Vote for State Status

Citizens of U.S. territory Puerto Rico voted last week and a majority agreed: they want to be the United States’ 51st state in the union. If allowed, analysts predict the new state of Puerto Rico would generate $22 billion a year for the U.S. Treasury Department. (Photo: AP Photo/Ricardo Arduengo)
