It's not a possibility...

If there was political will, Congress could admit the Dominican Republic as the 51st State. It's theoretical Constitutional, but never going to happen, much like DC recededing (or whatever the word would be) Arlington from Virginia.

Way off topic, but fun history lesson: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annexa..._Santo_Domingo
