The status quo movement in Puerto Rico refers to initiatives throughout the history of Puerto Rico aimed at maintaning the current political status of Puerto Rico, that of a commonwealth of the United States.

On December 11, 2012, the Legislative Assembly of Puerto Rico has enacted a concurrent resolution to request the President and the Congress of the United States, to respond diligently and effectively, and to act on the demand of the people of Puerto Rico, as freely and democratically expressed in the plebiscite held on November 6, 2012, to end, once and for all, its current form of territorial status and to begin the process of admission of Puerto Rico as a State.[1]
