The law is the law, and it seems like it is not being adhered to... OK, but the question is whether the same help is going to places where Trump (and the GOP) is popular (Texas) versus places they are not (PR). Surely you must understand that the one thing that must not be biased is the provision of disaster aid. Either by intention, or through outright incompetence, President 'Big Button' Trump is not providing sufficient resurces to get the job in PR done. People are killing themselves in PR out of despair for the situation. We can help the people of PR recover from the hurricane damage and help them improve their local government (repealing various shipping laws that cause PR economic hardship might be a good start so the local government actually has some funds with which to do something; possibly providing law enforcement resources to reduce corruption). The two are not mutually incompatible. --- Post Merged, Jan 3, 2018 --- Agreed. It's frustrating to hear of the conditions in PR, so apologies if some of that frustration got misdirected. I know somebody's who lost a close family member there because he became despondent and committed suicide. It just sounds like a humanitarian quagmire. I also recognise there are places elsewhere in the US that have other disasters, including man-made ones, to deal with. I am not saying that these areas should get less simply because PR is the current focus of the news media.
