These places are American soil populated by American citizens. They are integral components of the United States federal union. We should stop pretending that these places don't exist and embrace them as part of our nation.

I really don't understand why it's so complicated. Other countries like France, Denmark, and the Netherlands have fully integrated their territories into the nation so why can't we? If David Cameron moves ahead with his plans for a "more inclusive style of government" (aka integration into the United Kingdom) for the British territories then this will leave the United States as the world's last remaining colonial power ... do we really want this title?

You dont even need a U.S. Passport to go to, live or work in Puerto Rico if you're a US citizen or US resident. It's the same process as working anywhere in the US as Puerot Rico is part of the US. Just to make it more understandable-ALL Puertoricans are born US citizens and have the same documents that any born US citizens would have such as a SS Card and US Passport. Therefore, it's as easy as applying for a job any company in any state. I think you should make a visit to Puerto Rico first before making a decision to move there for work. You don't even need a passport to fly there if you're an American citizen.

This is a very thorny issue but contrary to popular ignorance, Puerto Rican Citizenship does indeed exist and is separate from Amerikan Citizenship. To qualify, you must be either...

a. Born in Puerto Rico.

...or...

b. One of your parents must have been born in Puerto Rico.

One only needs to do a quick search on "Puerto Rican Citizenship" at Wikipedia.com to read all the facts, arguments, points and counterpoints.

Puerto Rico culturally is a Nation unto itself.

Which is mildly interesting academically but has no bearing on the poster to whom you're responding. Even if he fulfilled the criteria for establishing PR citizenship this would in no way afford him any legal immigration status.

The only benefit I see of having Puerto Rican citizenship, is that it would help your case for Spanish citizenship (ergo, with Spain and EU) after 2 years residence. Even then, this is only available for those born in Puerto Rico anyway. There is no Puerto Rican passport, so Puerto Rican citizenship offers no legal benefits, and is merely symbolic

I'm an American citizen, so does that mean I can just move to Puerto Rico without a green card?

Do they teach US History or Geography any more. PR is NOT a country. It is a US Territory, meaning that as a US Citizen, if you want to move and live there you can. You do not need a "Green Car," Visa or passport.

BTW you can also move the the US Virgin Islands and other territories.
