|A los puertorriqueños les han inculcado|
que no somos parte de Estados Unidos.
¿Falso patriotismo? Sí.
Podemos ser buenos patriotas
puertorriqueños y americanos,
no existe incompatibilidad desde 1898 antes
que el Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." This amendment guarantees the three major rights of a citizen: life, liberty and property. It is also the case, however, that one can be born in another country and still be a citizen of the U.S., provided the child's parents are both American citizens.
The United States confers certain rights on its citizens. These rights include voting in federal elections, serving on juries, bringing family members into the country, gaining citizenship for children if born abroad, the ability to travel with a U.S. passport, the ability to run for federal office and being eligible for any federal grants and scholarships. Beyond such rights, U.S. citizens are also expected to fulfill certain responsibilities such as paying taxes, registering for the draft and following all the laws of the land.

Isabel's struggle was not in vain, in 1917, the United States Congress passed the Jones-Shafroth Act which conferred United States citizenship on all citizens of Puerto Rico and allowed conscription (military draft) to be extended to the island. The act, which was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson on March 2, 1917, also revised the system of the government in Puerto Rico. WIKIPEDIA
