97% of the 23% of the people who showed up to vote chose statehood for Puerto Rico. What is unfathomable about that is that the USA has destroyed Puerto Rico financially and its own economy is sinking and cannot sustain Puerto Rico as a fully integrated state -or colony- at this point. The only REAL solution is independence. That point aside, the USA government allowed the predators from Wall Street to have an orgy of fraud on the island to worsen a situation that was already catastrophic. Those banksters, gangsters and the traitors in San Juan must go to jail.
