There are 41 comments on the NOLA.com story from Sep 12, 2018, titled White House: FEMA money move won't hurt hurricane relief. In it, NOLA.com reports that:

Trump administration officials pushed back Wednesday against a Democratic senator's claim that nearly $10 million from the government's disaster relief agency was transferred to immigration enforcement. Sen. Jeff Merkley's claim, which came as a monster hurricane barreled toward the Carolinas, was quickly branded by Homeland Security as "a sorry attempt to push a false agenda."

According to FEMA, no money was moved. This is just another BS story to try to make everything look worse after the storm. It won't work. There is just so much that is humanely possible after something this devastating that can be done. We will do our best which will be more then the last 2 Presidents did in an emergency.

Well that is the way it works if one department has money that will be lost if they do not spend it before the end of the fiscal years

Move it over to someplace else

There is no reason to deny this

The only concern I would have is could this money have helped PR when they needed help

if this is a story then they need to make that connection.

PR had all the help they needed. Their power company was busted hording needed supplies to get their electric grid up and running. Food and water was not distributed and left rotting and unusable in warehouses and on runways. PR dropped the ball not FEMA.

If PR has a complaint about the disursemnt of FEMA funds, they should voice it through their Congressfolk and Senators.

Oh, right.

Well, if they have a complaint about how their federal taxes are used...

Oh. Never mind.

There is a fascinating frailty with the right-wing mind-set called “arguing from ignorance”... that is what right-wingers do. Making abject statements of ignorance regardless of facts or reality.

When all they can complain about is "he shook his fists!" they are pretty hard up for reasons to support them in any election, much less one that is as important as the mid terms in November. They can forget that big blue wave.

Democrats and their media tried the same blame game on Bush, Jr. before the Katrina landfall. NPR blatantly and openly said they would use Katrina to undermine the Bush Presidency and they did. Democrats think all people have delusional short memories like themselves. Now, they are saying Trump is "complicit" with a hurricane. No matter what human error, or tragedy might occur, they will blame Trump and the GOP. First, their scaremongering is used to create panic and fear, then they use this Goebbels' trick to defame the "deplorables" they've been dehumanizing for two years now.

Good. ICE fights against invaders on a daily basis while FEMA deals with a hurricane once maybe twice a year.

Instead of "waiting on government" for hurricane "relief", how about getting prepared YOURSELF? It's not like people haven't known about this for more than a week.
