They pulled back their offer.

Mexico announced on Monday it is withdrawing its offer to send relief to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

As Harvey hit Texas last month, the Mexican government offered food, beds, generators, mobile kitchens and doctors. No formal American response was ever made to the offer.

On Thursday, an 8.1 earthquake struck southern Mexico, killing 96 people and causing a crisis impacting about 2.5 million people. Adding to the nation’s woes, Hurricane Katia hit the Gulf Coast of Mexico, causing flooding and stretching emergency services even thinner.

“Given these circumstance, the Mexican government will channel all available logistical support to serve the families and communities affected in the national territory,” the Mexican foreign ministry statement said.

The ministry said the U.S. had taken nine days to respond to Mexico’s offer and that “only certain logistical aid” was ever accepted.

Although government aid never arrived, Mexico’s volunteer Red Cross sent food and supplies to storm victims.

That assistance, however, has been overshadowed by political differences between Mexico and the U.S.

For example, former Mexican president Vicete Fox tweeted that President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was “on the top of the vilest acts” Trump has ever “pulled off.”

“You’re destroying the legacy of greater men before you,” Fox wrote.

“It is the worst action you have ever done against the ones that cannot defend themselves,” he said in a separate video. “This measure is cruel and heartless, worse than any machine.”

Trump, for his part, has recently criticized Mexico on trade issues.

With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.

“With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other,” Trump tweeted.

Mexican media also highlighted the fact that Trump has not spoken about the earthquake.

What do you think?

   I am sure that FEMA was grateful for the AID that MEXICO originally made for the American victims of the TEXAS and FLORIDA Hurricanes.

   But from what I hear, 20 Straw Filled mattreses,  500 soft Tacos, 200 PINIATAs (filled with cocaine) 350,000 illegal aliens, 2 Donkeys,  a signed Photo of  "Pancho"Villa, and a pair of stained underpants of Generalissimo SANTA ANA, after he was captured by SAM HOUSTON and thousands of TEXANS after The Mexican General slaughtered the entire AMERICAN male defenders of  "The ALAMO" ............... The FEMA people considered the intended donation was NOT  suitable  for the HURRICAINE RELIEF.

  Then came the MEXICAN EARTHQUAKE and Former Mexican Presidente Vincente FOX blamed it on President TRUMP !!!!!  TYPICAL !!!!   For that,...........we should build the "WALL" 10 Feet Higher than intended !!!!!

So good, both of you!

Screw Mexico! Build that Wall!

I'm surprised Trump hasn't made a trip to FL yet since Irma hit......  hmmm?

 From what I hear, the Runways at all the Airports in the area are still not functioning at maximum yet.  As a former Air Traffic Controller, I can tell you that a "HIT" to an Airport by a Storm such as IRMA, does NOT present itself well. safety wise, for a "JUGGERNAUT" of a Plane such as AIR FORCE ONE. Remember, the Cadre of Secret Service, and hundreds of support staff, vehicles, Press, and scads of others are to be considered on a visit by the POTUS. Cut him some slack..... He will make it in due time,........ the people are STILL digging themselves out as well too !!!

Maybe.  BUT............he has a helicopter too...  How many SS do you need when nearly the entire state was evacuated?

So far I think Gov. Scott has done a phenomenal job with directing services in this terrible time for Florida. Law Enforcement has been exemplary always siding on safety of the people and no gun confiscation following the example of the Virgin Islands, a US territory under the umbrella of the Constitution of the United States of America a impeachment of the gov. of the islands may be in order.
Trump will be along directly I think Florida is in good hands with Scott at the helm.
God Bless America!
It takes only one dumb a** democrat and the nation is at the half way mark with those critters.
It's sad that two natural disasters took place for us to be a little optimistic about our own countrymen.

I find it strange that 9/11 and these two disasters happened at the same time of the year..... hmmmmm

YES !!!!  You could say that God has a peculiar way of sending messages !!!!!!!!

AL GORE would say it was "GLOBAL WARMING !!!!!!




Refugee Complains:
‘Too Many Laws’ In Western World

 During a recent interview with local media in Australia, a Sudanese refugee and mother of six suggested that the Australian government deserves the blame for her eldest son’s propensity for crime.

According to Nine News, Asha Awya’s eldest son is an unemployed gang member who has spent time in prison. Instead of pinning the blame for her son’s actions on him, however, Awya feels the Australian government deserves it for passing “too many laws.”

She said so during an appearance last week on the Australian program “A Current Affair,” where she also appeared to slam actual Australians for allegedly not making it easy for refugees to assimilate.

“They (her kids) came from a very traumatized environment, and coming to Australia, trying to fit in with the religion and the friends around them at school, is very challenging,” she said. “We have all these laws, so it’s just very confusing, and I feel sorry for the kids because they don’t know how to deal with this.”

But that’s not all. Awya also complained that the government provides her with too little money.

“The Centrelink money is not enough,” she said, referencing a welfare program operated by the Australian government’s Department of Human Services.

“Sometimes I cut some of their entertainment,” she added, saying in effect that she sometimes stops handing out allowances so as to reduce her costs.

And this, she believes, only serves to incentivize her son’s desire to commit crime.

“If mum always not giving me money, there’s no pocket money, then maybe I have to find a way of stealing and get my own money,” she said, articulating what she believes goes through her son’s mind.

So even though the Australian government graciously (and perhaps naively) allowed this Sundanese woman to migrate to the country, she basically resents this same government because it refuses to lavishly provide for her and her family’s every single need, including their desire for entertainment.

Behold the perfect example of a spoiled-rotten, ungrateful refugees, ladies and gentlemen.

You know, the media often accuse those who criticize their respective governments for allowing refugees to flood their neighborhoods of harboring racist views. If only it were that simple.

Many Westerners, including your truly — a citizen whose family immigrated to the West from India over three decades ago — take issue with the behavior of refugees.

Besides making nary an effort to assimilate, many refugees wind up on welfare, eschewing hard work and effort for a life of government subsistence and oftentimes a life of crime as well.

Now, consider what Awya told “A Current Affair” and answer me this: Is it really “racist” that Westerners such as yours truly prefer that migrants such as her remain in their own country instead of being allowed to migrate to ours?

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about this Sudanese refugee’s disgusting lack of gratitude.

What do you think about this migrant trying to blame her son’s behavior on the Australian government? Scroll down to comment below!
