Rep. Torres, Gov. Hochul and Gov Pierluisi to Announce Opening of Puerto Rican Services Office in the Bronx
San Juan, Puerto Rico – On Friday, Rep. Ritchie Torres is joined by Governor Kathy Hochul and Governor Pedro Pierluisi to announce the opening of the Puerto Rican Services Office in The Bronx. Residents will receive assistance from the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration (PRFAA) in obtaining the following documents: birth, marriage and death certificates; official seals; driver records; apostille services; and ASUME certificates.
“Today we are excited to announce the reopening of the Puerto Rican services Office in the Bronx. I am proud to work with Governor Hochul and Governor Pierluisi to serve the Puerto Rican community in New York City. Outside of the island New York state has the highest population of Puerto Ricans in the United States. The presence of this office not only allows for Puerto Rican residents to access important documentation but also creates a space to build relationships between the Puerto Rican diaspora in NYC and current residents of Puerto Rico. Following Hurricanes Maria and Fiona, thousands of Puerto Ricans have come to the New York to restart their lives after losing everything in the natural disasters. Thank you to Governor Hochul and Governor Pierluisi for their support on bringing these critical services back to New York.”
