  • they don't get full citizenship bc they can't vote in any of our elections and they don't pay taxes for our country.

  • yes, because of a law that passed in 1917. President Woodrow Wilson signed the Jones-Shafroth Act. This law gave Puerto Ricans U.S. citizenship. The Jones Act separated the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches of Puerto Rican government, provided civil rights to the individual, and created a locally elected bicameral legislature.
