Should the District of Columbia become the 51st state, and should Puerto Rico become the 52nd state?


Recently there has been push to make D.C. the 51st state. Some people argue they should become a state as the residents do not have senatorial or house of representative representation. However, they do get delegates in the presidential election. Others argue they should not as too much of the capital's security would fall to state level resources. P.R.s argument has been that they are a populous unincorporated territory of vast importance. Others argue that P.R. has already voted numerous times to not get statehood, although the votes were close. What are your thoughts?
