Puerto Rico in Limbo (Part 1)

Last November, Puerto Ricans went to the polls to state their preference for the island's political future. Though the election is over, the debate is not likely to end soon. Should Puerto Rico become the 51st state, break off as an independent nation, or remain a commonwealth of the United States? The decision is really up to the United States Congress. In this program, Common Ground talks to the Puerto Ricans themselves -- residents of the island and leaders of the Commonwealth, Statehood, and Independence parties -- about their hopes for the island's future.

Rebroadcast of this program is made possible by the sponsors of the Internet Multicasting Service.
