In 1917, the U.S. Congress passed a law granting U.S. citizenship to Puerto Ricans. So what would it take for the island to become a state? Journalist Andrea González-Ramírez joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the political roadblocks to statehood, the option to become an independent nation, and the complex issues that face the future of the island. Her article for Medium is headlined “Is Statehood Next for Puerto Rico? It’s Complicated.”
