I remember first hearing about the notion of Puerto Rico becoming a state in a magazine I used to read called "Time For Kids", which they still print.

To be honest, I think it would be a bit strange for Puerto Rico to become a state seeing as how they mostly speak Spanish. I know Spanish is spoken in many parts of the USA, but it seems strange. Of course, Alaska became a state and it's mostly just a giant piece of ice. I would have to learn more about the reasons to come up with a good reason.

But if it happens, i wont care either way.

They have to follow all our laws, but they get no vote and have to pay taxes to us.
