The time may be right. In one sense, the residents of these de facto states should have some sort of congressional representation. In the political sense (why I posted it here), if the GOP wishes to appeal more broadly to Hispanic voters, there are few steps they can immediately take that will help them more. Liberals getting 3 more congressional votes in Congress will be a good counter-balance to ensure it goes through. We haven't added a state in what, 52 years? It's time.
