No one should oppose D.C., Guam, or Puerto Rico for that matter from becoming states if they desire through the LEGAL and CONSTITUTIONAL process.
The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives approved a measure last week that would grant statehood to a renamed Washington, Douglass Commonwealth. This new 51st state would receive one House representative and two U.S. senators. However, this unconstitutional bill would ignore the 23rd Amendment and undermine the very reason our founding fathers established D.C. as an independent federal district free from the influence of any one state. We must protect our constitutional safeguards on federal power. Your voice can make a difference!
