Mexico Pulls Aid Out Of Texas After Earthquake, Hurricane

Share

It is noted that more victims were confirmed in the affected southern States of Oaxaca and Chiapas.

Mexico had pledged to offer food, generators and medical aid to Texas "as good neighbours should always do in trying times".

The government estimates that some 2.5 million people are in need of aid, and survivors are still waiting for help in some areas. The quake added to the impact of Hurricane Katia. Specifically, Mexico offered to provide Harvey storm emergency assistance, making a diplomatic and humanitarian show of goodwill amidst a politically contentious relationship with the president of the United States.

Such an interlude suggests that hurricanes are cyclical and not exponential as the leftist climate frauds would have you believe. That's all I did. 'But, Rush, but, Rush, when the hurricane hits and the water stops and the water...' I understand that.

On Sept. 6, Mexico received word that the US had accepted its offer, but would only need "logistical support" from the country, as the need in Texas had "declined considerably", according to the statement from Mexico.

According to a report from The Daily Beastearly Wednesday morning, the State Department said in an email that the United States would "work with our partners, including Mexico" if the need for assistance arose, although another email from an unnamed Mexican official stated that neither Texas nor the federal government had answered the offer. Mexico also suffered the passage of Hurricane Katia, which has left severe damage to the state of Veracruz and at least two dead. Mexico responded to those charges in the same statement it released offering Harvey help, saying that the country won't be paying for the border wall "under any circumstances".

The letter also noted that it was on August 27 that Mexican officials offered specific assistance to Texas in a phone call with Abbott, followed up by an offer of assistance to the U.S. State Department on August 28. "Tillerson offered his condolences for the loss of life and the devastation caused by the natural disaster in Mexico and from Hurricane Katia", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told the Los Angeles Times. Tillerson told Videgaray the US stood ready to help Mexico.
