There are 3.5 million U.S. citizens currently facing one of the worst financial crises in this country - and they're all in Puerto Rico.The U.S. government has an almost 120-year-long relationship with Puerto Rico – which is a territory, not the 51st state. But what has that relationship looked like? Why is Puerto Rico still a territory, and what do Puerto Ricans, themselves, want for their future? Explore these questions – and some others – with Sana Saeed, who starts the story at the very beginning: May 12, 1898.Learn more here:Source. “5 Facts About Puerto Rico's Utter Economic Misery.” http://money.cnn.com/2017/05/08/news/...
