Creating a path to statehood

On Some Island (Part 1 of 2)

Key Points

  • Questions about how Territories are created and managed have been around since the Louisiana Purchase and have still not been sufficiently resolved.

  • The Insular Cases are the closest answer, but they made it so the Constitution only partially applies to the people and governments of the Territories.

  • A Constitutional process needs to be created to finally answer all of these outstanding issues.
