Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Sires issued the following statement regarding the President’s most recent tweets about disaster response resources in Puerto Rico:

“The President’s tweets threatening to remove FEMA, the military, and other responders are heartless and completely unacceptable. Our fellow Americans on Puerto Rico are still suffering from the unimaginable devastation left in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  Much of the island is still without power, reliable access to drinking water, or medical care.  We must help Puerto Rico recover and rebuild, not tweet threats about removing aid.”
