A few questions on moving to Puerto Rico?

1) If I live in the USA and want to move to Puerto Rico for awhile, does it conflict with immigration laws or not since it is part of our territory? Would I need a work visa to work?
2) Since it IS part of our territory, how easy/hard would it be to move to Puerto Rico?
3) Does anyone know how safe Puerto Rico is compared to Atlanta or New York area? Is it safe at all there?
4) Is it easy to find a good residence (like the USA) for under $1,000,000?
5) Are there many natural disasters there? Such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.?
Thank you everyone for your time! Have a nice day :)

Moving to Puerto Rico is just like moving to another state. If you are a U.S. citizen, you simply move. No visa or permits needed. See 1st page below for info on safety in Puerto Rico. If you cannot find at lest 5 good apartments for one million dollars, you need to go somewhere else. One million dollars should buy quite a mansion. See 2nd page below for info on natural disasters.

Do you even know that HALF of all Puerto Ricans LIVE IN THE US because THERE ARE NO JOBS in Puerto Rico. do you even KNOW that? AND. the few jobs YOU will be able to get are BOTTOM RUNG SH*T JOBS and all those require FLUENT SPANISH. you won't be able to get one of those entry level jobs with Just the usual 20 words of Spanish that most Amerikans can talk so they can pretend to be fluent and fool their friends.
THERE ARE NO JOBS and the COST OF LIVING is about 20 percent HIGHER than in the US. Does THAT answer your questions?

1. No conflict, no visa required to trip between USA and PR, if you can legally work in the USA you can do the same in PR without any work permit.
2. Move? Find an location to rent or buy, pack your things, contract a moving company, and come. The hard thing will be find a job since right know there are a lot of good experienced and skilled people without job looking for the few ones that are available; that is without mentioning the ones graduating from the universities every year.
3. As safe as any major town in US. There are good and bad destinations in PR.
4. With $1,000,000 you can buy a huge mansion in PR and be the next door neighbor of boxer Oscar De La Hoya or other celebrities that live here. $150,000 or $200,000 is enough to buy a fine four bedrooms apartment in a good place.
5. We are at the tropic therefore subject to exotic storms and hurricanes. The hurricane/storms season is from May to November. The earth moves every day of the year, most of the times the movements are so little that we do not feel them. Earthquakes that cause damages to structures are very rare. The last one that is remembered happened about 100 years ago.
