There has been a lot of talk lately about a 'path to citizenship' in the new immigration reform law, but a new study by the Pew Research Hispanic Center says most immigrants from Mexico, who make up the bulk of illegal immigrants, are not interested in becoming U.S. citizens.

Not at all. I just wonder why such a fierce patriot as yourself does not go home and fight for independence.
Oh that's right. If you did the gravy train would be over. It is remarkable that you come from an island that is exempt from paying any federal taxes yet receives over $25B a year in handouts for the US government. Can you say "welfare state"? The best part is that you still get to call yourself a citizen even though nobody in the US considers you to be an American.
In the Hispanic world you have hit the jackpot with your back door citizenship. Why so bitter?

He does the same thing to me. His favorite is calling anyone that disagrees with him an "anchor baby." Therefore, it's nothing to take serious. Another is stating that he somehow "got under your skin." I can see maybe if had some effective writing skills, but not a chance....

<quoted text>my people have fought in every single American war In the last 120 years and did it for pride and not citizenship,I think that would qualify us as Americans,not to mention the fact that they just voted to become a state because they want to pay taxes and do thier part,so you need to do a bit more research before you open your mouth. Oh and by the way,the first line of your rant is more than enough proof that you're a pissed off anchor baby,why in gods name would anybody want to Cut ties with the greatest nation in human history?gaining independence from Spain didn't turn out so well for your precious mexihole,ha memo?
Hey stupid, most didn't just join up for "pride." Most saw it as a career and away out their wretched economic conditions. The Island was always notorious for not being a good provider of jobs and the like.

... and that crap about "they wanting to pay taxes" couldn't be more from the truth. Nobody likes paying taxes.

I know why Puerto Rico does not want to cut ties with the gravy train, but there is nothing in it for us. After the Spanish American War it was considered to be a militarily strategic location, but then after the invention of airplanes and radar that became moot.
Vieques was a useful bombing range because we certainly did not want to use anywhere in the US for target practice, but now even that is useless.
Nobody really cares about a nonbinding referendum. They have similar votes every couple of years. Nobody even knows what it means anyway. In the same election 54% of people voted to end Commonwealth status and 480,000 abstained from even voting on the statehood question.
It is pretty clear what would happen to Puerto Rico if Americans were allowed to vote on their status.
say what you want anchor baby,but Puerto Rico did vote to become a state,which makes you look like a complete idiot for saying that they don't want to do thier part and if you think Americans would vote Puerto Rico out,just imagine what would happen if they took a vote on giving your parents amnesty?I bet you anything your precious polls wouldn't match the results,lmao

"Nobody likes paying taxes" you say? CORRECTION...LOSER, I don't mine paying my taxes, it is a patriotic citizen's obligation to benefit OUR OWN CITIZENS when in dire need or old age and to STRENGTHEN OUR COUNTRY (MILITARILY) from aggressive nations, who consider FREEDOM as being evil. I will gladly pay my taxes to live as I please in this magnificent country.

Do they even teach math in Puerto Rico?

For the first question on the referendum 54% of people voted to end the Commonwealth status.

the second question was about statehood. 480,000 out of 800,000 people who turned out at the polls did not even vote on that question. So that means only 40% of people who went to the polls even bothered to cast a vote. Who cares that 61% of those 40% voted for statehood. That means that only 24% of people who voted cast a ballot in favor of statehood.

They like the gravy train. Americans on the other hand do not.

Most Americans don't want to pay taxes without representation. The super wealthy will try anything they can and use every loophole available to avoid paying taxes. I don't want to pay higher taxes so government workers make more money than I do. I don't want to pay higher taxes for the illegal aliens. I can go on and on about paying taxes.

Memo and myself just hit you with facts about your people and your Island and you're still in denial. That speaks volumes.... and when anyone disagrees with you, then automatically become an anchor baby. You desperately toss out labels to cover for your ineptness.
