DHS ice US news hurricane season Florence
On Thursday, several US States prepare to adopt the next disaster strikes, in the form of hurricane “Florence”. Meanwhile, Puerto Rico is still in the recovery after the defeat, which brought “Maria”. Such disasters cause losses in the tens of billions, and money available in the budget of the Federal Agency for emergency management (The Federal Emergency Management Agency), as a rule, not available.

At least I thought so journalists have not yet learned that the administration of Donald trump in anticipation of the start of hurricane season transferred from the accounts of FEMA nearly $10 million, in favor of Immigration and customs enforcement of the United States.
A document entitled “the Department of homeland security FY 2018, transfer and Notification of changes” was first released on the TV channel MSNBC. The media gave it to Senator Jeff Merk. It shows that the Department of homeland security, in whose jurisdiction is located as FEMA and ICE, reallocated financial resources in favor of Immigration and customs enforcement.
The money is intended to meet the requirements of the so-called policy of “zero tolerance” against illegal immigrants. This is clearly stated in the document. It is reported that lack of funding could lead to the release of people caught illegally in the United States. ICE would cease to deport individuals who have violated the immigration laws. That is explained by the withdrawal of Finance from the Federal Agency on management in emergency situations.

Moreover, to recover the money FEMA no planning. In return from the leadership of the Agency demanded to reduce a few of the programs on modernization of equipment and organization of specialized training.
The representative of the Ministry of internal security stated that these financials did not affect the relief funds during disasters. However, the documentation says otherwise. It is reported that $1.9 million was taken from accounts designed to respond to natural disasters and $3.2 million means of preparedness and protection. Another $330 thousand withdrew from the Fund disaster recovery. Asked to comment on these data in the DHS has not responded.
Disappointing forecasts of weather forecasters give for the South-East coast where the hurricane is coming “Nightingale”. It is rapidly increased up to the 4th category.
