    They aren't a commonwealth of the US; Pennsylvania and Virginia are Commonwealths of the US.  Puerto Rico is a commonwealth that is an unincorporated territory of the US.

  • Yes, Puerto Rico is part of the United States. They may have to give aid, fund, and support them possibly. It may be expensive, but they don’t have that much of a choice.

    We should NOT provide more aid without more direct involvement in our aid's distribution. Too much of the aid we have already provided has been lost to corruption and the incompetence of the Puerto Rican government and officials.
