Milwaukee, WI - The Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation (WHSF) who operates the annual Mexican Fiesta has announced that it opened a Casa Jalisco on Friday in partnership with the state of Jalisco, Mexico in conjunction with the Mexican Consulate in Chicago.
At Casa Jalisco, Mexican nationals from the state of Jalisco will now be able to get legal documents like marriage licenses, identification documents, birth certificates, other documents and online educational programs from their home state like the Mexican Consulate provides. It will now save time and avoid a trip to Chicago for their documents.
The Casa Jalisco in Milwaukee is the third of its kind in the U.S. Two other states, Illinois and California also have opened a Casa Jalisco and provide similar services, according to WHSF.
It will provide legal document services to Jalisco citizens only at the WHSF home, where Mexican Fiesta has its office, located at 2997 S. 20th St. in Milwaukee.
