A person born in the island of Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans born in the island on or after January 13, 1941 are born US citizens. Those born before that date but on or after April 11, 1899 were granted US citizenship by the Jones-Shafrat Act of 1917.

Many people who were not born in the island, feel or consider themselves Puerto Ricans because one or both of their parents were born there.
