    ENSURING FEDERAL READINESS: The Trump Administration has taken extensive steps to ensure the Federal Government is prepared for Hurricane Florence and other storms.

    • President Donald J. Trump and his Administration are monitoring multiple storms, including Florence, Olivia, Mangkut, and Isaac, and the President has mobilized the Federal Government to support response efforts.
    • The Trump Administration began putting precautionary measures in place before Labor Day.
    • In anticipation of these storms, President Trump granted emergency declarations for North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Hawaii, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
      • As a result, FEMA will have more authorization to assist areas affected by these storms.

    THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN PLACE: The Trump Administration has already put thousands of Federal personnel in place to assist with response efforts for Hurricane Florence and other storms.

    • More than 4,000 Federal employees, including more than 1,000 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), are working to provide support in response to these storms.
    • Federal teams have been deployed to support response operations, including teams to assist with incident management, medical assistance, and rescue operations. For example:
      • 2 Army Corps of Engineers teams are on the ground in the Carolinas and Virginia to assist with planning for debris removal and temporary power support.
      • 5 Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Disaster Medical Assistance Teams are deployed, including in parts of the Carolinas, Maryland, and Virginia.
      • 7 FEMA Incident Management Assistance Teams have been deployed, including in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia ahead of Hurricane Florence.
      • 16 FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Teams, including swift water rescue task forces, have been deployed, including in North Carolina and South Carolina.
      • The Coast Guard is positioned in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Virginia to quickly mobilize to support search and rescue efforts.

    PROVIDING NEEDED RESOURCES: The Trump Administration is dedicating resources to help private and public partners prepare and respond to the impact of these storms.

    • Federal agencies are working to support efforts by the private sector and State and local authorities to provide needed resources in response to these storms.
    • The private sector is the first source for goods in affected areas, and if those supplies are exhausted State, local, and volunteer agencies provide needed supplies.
    • Among the prepositioned resources are over 11 million meals, over 18 million liters of water, over 60 thousand cots, and over 1 million blankets.
    • FEMA has more than two dozen Incident Support Bases, Distribution Centers, and other sites with life-saving supplies throughout the east coast, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands.
    • FEMA National and Regional Response Coordination Centers have been activated to coordinate with State governments, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

    The Trump administration diverted $10 million from FEMA to support ICE, documents show



    • The Trump administration diverted nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to fund immigration detention centers, documents show.
    • The news comes as a Category 4 hurricane barrels toward the Carolinas, and President Donald Trump continues to defend his widely criticized response to last year's hurricanes in Puerto Rico.

    The Trump administration transferred nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to fund immigration detention centers just ahead of hurricane season

    Trump diverted money away from FEMA at the beginning of hurricane season to help put more immigrant children seeking refuge in kiddie prisons - this is horrifying!

    It's not just FEMA: ICE quietly got an extra $200 million


    As a potentially catastrophic hurricane bears down on the East Coast of the US, the shifting of $10 million from FEMA's operating budget to fund immigration detention and deportations is drawing condemnation from Democrats.

    But that's a drop in the bucket.
    The Trump administration this summer quietly redirected $200 million from all over the Department of Homeland Security to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, despite repeated congressional warnings of ICE's "lack of fiscal discipline" and "unsustainable" spending.
    The Department of Homeland Security asked for the money, according to a document made public this week by Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley. Of the $200 million, the document says $93 million will go to immigrant detention, a 3% budget increase that will fund capacity for an additional 2,300 detainees; and $107 million for "transportation and removal," or deportations, a 29% budget increase.
    In addition to this summer's widely condemned move to separate families at the border, the administration has drawn criticism for arresting a far greater rate of noncriminal undocumented immigrants and seeking to detain them much longer. On Tuesday, the administration announced it would tripling the size of an emergency temporary tent facility to house more immigrant children.

    DHS transferred about $170M from separate agencies to ICE this year: report


    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reportedly transferred about $170 million from different government agencies to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this year.
    NBC News, citing a document sent to Congress by DHS, reported on Thursday that the funds were transferred to ICE in order to help the agency with the removal and detention of immigrants who were in the country illegally.



    The money came from a variety of national security programs, including $1.8 million from the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office and $9.8 million meant for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), according to NBC News.
    The network reported that $29 million came from the U.S. Coast Guard, and more than $34 million was from different Transportation Security Administration (TSA) programs. In addition, DHS reportedly transferred $33 million from different ICE programs to pay for the removal and detention of migrants, meaning the total amount of funds transferred to the immigration agency was $202 million.

    $29 million diverted from the US Coast Guard, who saves countless lives in rescuing victims of hurricane flooding? $34 million diverted from TSA, which helps keeps our airports safe? Are you kidding me? What in fuck's sake is Trump doing?

    ​Yes, lil' Donnie all by himself flew in the air above the hurricane, and blew his hot air that he usually reserves for his rallies all over Florence, lowering it to a Cat 1 before it hit land. Amazing!!

    President Donald J. Trump Approves North Carolina Disaster Declaration

    LAND & AGRICULTURE

    Issued on: September 15, 2018





    Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump declared that a major disaster exists in the State of North Carolina and ordered Federal aid to supplement State, Tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by Hurricane Florence beginning on September 7, 2018, and continuing.


    The Presidentís action makes Federal funding available to affected individuals in the counties of Beaufort, Brunswick, Carteret, Craven, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, and Pender.


    Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.


    Federal funding also is available to State and to Tribal and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work in the counties of Beaufort, Brunswick, Carteret, Craven, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, and Pender.


    Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.



    Brock Long, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security, named Albert Lewis as the Federal Coordinating Officer for Federal recovery operations in the affected areas.



    Damage assessments are continuing in other areas, and more counties and additional forms of assistance may be designated after the assessments are fully completed.



    Residents and business owners who sustained losses in the designated counties can begin applying for assistance tomorrow by registering online at http://www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA(3362) or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for the hearing and speech impaired. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (local time) seven days a week until further notice.
