Puerto Ricans Moving to the Mainland US will Remember at the Voting Booth

"As American citizens living on the island, Puerto Ricans cannot vote in presidential elections and can send only nonvoting representatives to Congress. But once they make the move and are living on the mainland, they only need to register to be eligible to vote."

While Puerto Ricans may not be able to vote in presidential elections, their influence will be ever-increasing and likely to work against the Republican Party in the coming elections (Puerto Rican Political Backlash). As more and more Puerto Ricans come to the mainland US, they will register to vote and will become a sizable voting bloc, who likely will not be voting for republicans.
