Acevedo: Puerto Ricans in U.S. Should Have a Voice
The Governor's opinion should add another dimension to the ongoing debate about whether Puerto Ricans in the United States should have a vote in the proposed referendums to decide a permanent status for the island. With about 3 to 4 million Puerto Ricans living in the United States and 4 million living on the island, the Puerto Rican diaspora could easily amount to close to 50% of the total eligible electorate, though no actual data has yet to be made available.
Should Puerto Ricans outside of the island be able to help determine the island's future? Let us know what you think in the comments.
