Brooklyn families unite with long-lost relatives

Posted: Updated:

Brooklyn residents were reunited with their family members after years of being separated.

Borough President Eric Adams and Mi Casa es Puebla hosted a family reunification ceremony at Borough Hall on Monday.

The event brought together nearly 100 elderly Mexicans with their families in the United States.

They will spend the next three weeks in the United States with their long-lost families.
