美国在波多黎各 (Puerto Rico) 升起国旗
18981018

波多黎各人在美军抵达的前一年就已经自西班牙取得独立的地位。当波多黎各在1917年成为美国领土之后,波多黎各人正式得到美国公民的资格。当工业发展程度越来越高,也有越来越多人从乡下地方搬到都市里来。从1920年代开始,波多黎各人开始到纽约等都市寻找就业机会。

一直到现在,波多黎各的未来定位还是没有确定,各界也还在辩论当中。波多黎各会变成一个国家吗?会独立吗?还是继续维持美国自治领土的一部分呢?你觉得哪一个是波多黎各最好的选择?


Puerto Ricans had reached their goal of independence from Spain just a year before the United States arrived. Puerto Ricans gained full U.S. citizenship in 1917, when the island became a U.S. territory. Much of the population moved from rural areas to the cities, as the importance of industry grew. Starting in the 1920s, Puerto Ricans began traveling to cities such as New York looking for employment.

Currently, the future of Puerto Rico is hotly debated. Will it become a state? Gain independence? Remain a commonwealth? What do you think is the best option for Puerto Rico?
