Why would puertoricans want it? Great question
Puertoricans have been taught to believe that the island
Cannot sustain itself, that if independence comes people will starve. Also the belief that being "associated" like now, or a state is the solution for everything. Lots of puertoricans are stuck in the "US is all powerful and can do no wrong" mentality. Totally oblivious to the very serious problems the US is facing today.
Also the US brutally supressed the independence movement from the get go, even outlawing the flag and national anthem till 1952.
