What does it mean to turn Washington into an American state?

Egyptian News Vision: - The US House of Representatives, with 232 votes to 180, supported by Democrats, approved a bill to turn Washington, DC, into a state, meaning that its residents would have the right to vote in elections. It also requires electing two senators to represent the state, which could change the mechanisms of power in Congress.

This is the first time in American history that one of the two houses of the American Congress adopts a text of this type and the first time since 1993 that the vote on Washington's status is being voted on.

The law aims to give residents of the US capital - since 1790, population: 705,749 (2019) - equal voting rights with the rest of Americans.

And it was agreed with expectations that this law will not pass in the Senate where Republicans are strongly opposed to it, and even if it is approved by the Senate, President Donald Trump who believes that the Republicans are not so "stupid" to pass it will pass it.

"The Congress has one of two options: either to continue exercising authoritarian, undemocratic power over 750,000 people" who are the residents of Washington, "or to fulfill the pledge and ideals of this nation" by voting for the law, and Norton has an oversight It is not entitled to vote in the House.

On Washington license plates are written "Taxes without representation," an emblem from the British colonial era. When the establishment of the United States in the eighteenth century, the founding fathers wanted the federal government headquarters outside the first 13 states to avoid conflicts, so the constitution stipulated the establishment of a "boycott" in 1790, directly attached to the central authority.

More than 705,000 Americans live in the administrative "District of Columbia" that is a stronghold of Democrats and has a population greater than the combined population of Wyoming and Vermont.
