An official from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) told CNN they will not be providing additional aid to Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico. He said January 31 was a date FEMA set for evaluating Puerto Rico's continuing need for aid. Bill Nelson, spoke on the Senate floor asking FEMA to continue providing aid to Puerto Rico until the entire island has water and electricity again. "You have to remind them, Puerto Rico is a US territory and its residents are USA citizens".
Maldonado said FEMA's aid is critical to residents, as much of the money they would have normally used to buy food is instead being used to buy fuel. "The College will continue to welcome students from Puerto Rico with open arms and provide them with the assistance they need to return to their higher education pursuits as they continue to recover from the storm". "This is another sign of a president that is totally disengaged from how they treat fellow citizens in the island of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands". This is further demonstrated by the cruel decision by FEMA today to pull food and water aid to the island, despite many residents still lacking access to running water and one third of the island still without electricity.
As of last week, approximately 2,400 students from Puerto Rico had enrolled in the Commonwealth's schools.

Members of the #Power4PuertoRico Coalition offered the following statements, reacting to President Trump's fleeting mention of Puerto Rico almost four months after Hurricane Maria devastated the Island and its people. "You have to remind them, Puerto Rico is a US territory and its residents are USA citizens".
"The commercial supply chain for food and water is re-established and private suppliers are sufficiently available that FEMA provided commodities are no longer needed for emergency operations", Booher said in the Tuesday statement.
The island government appeared blindsided by the decision, saying it was still in talks with FEMA on a timetable for assuming control of food and water distribution. So why should Washington treat Puerto Rico any differently?
But as public concerns mounted over FEMA's plans following NPR's report, the agency released a new statement.
