I believe Puerto Rico should not become a state for how it would affect us. The poverty rate in Puerto Rico is 45%. Drug and crime rates are very high, which only brings more problems upon the United States.

Although the BOP would usually be rested on me, per rules of debate, if Con makes an R1 argument they have shifted the BOP onto themselves.

You are making bare assertions with no evidence, sources, proof, verifications, warrants, or implications, I will not be able to successfully respond to your arguments until they have ground, and of course assertions without proof are groundless.
