SUNSET PARK -

Puerto Ricans came together in Sunset Park to protest the Governor of Puerto Rico, demanding his resignation on Friday.

Gov. Ricardo Rosselló came under fire within the past week after some profane texts between him and his staff leaked.

Officers from the 72nd Precinct provided water for the group, which plans to continue rallying into the evening.

The protestors say they were appalled to learn of the governor’s remarks and want their voices to be heard for their fellow Puerto Ricans back home.
