The increase in emigration from Puerto Rico has created opportunities for Puerto Ricans living in the United States.
Given the importance that population size and growth have in the social and political discourse in the United States, this increase in the size of the Puerto Rican population throughout the country will contribute to make Puerto Ricans more visible politically, socially, economically, and culturally.
Hurricanes Irma and Maria may have brought destruction and devastation to Puerto Rico, but they also brought opportunities for the building of a stronger Puerto Rico and Diaspora.
