Mexico cancels Texas aid as it battles devastating losses

Mexico cancels Texas aid as it battles devastating losses

Addressing the twin disasters, the Mexican government announced in a statement that it would divert the resources it would have sent to Texas, reallocating them instead to those in need of aid within the nation's borders. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the country sent a convoy of soldiers, food and medical workers, along with water-treatment facilities and a kitchen to feed 7,000 people a day.

The announcement by Mexico that it was withdrawing its offer to help Texas must have caught someone's attention in Washington.

"Given this situation, the Mexican government will channel all available logistical support to the families and communities that have been affected in Mexico and has informed the Texas and United States governments that, unfortunately, on this occasion, it won't be possible to provide the assistance originally offered to Texas in late August in the wake of Hurricane Harvey", the foreign ministry said in a statement. And it expressed "full solidarity" with the victims of Hurricane Irma. Mexico also suffered the passage of Hurricane Katia, which has left severe damage to the state of Veracruz and at least two dead.

But it has also been widely noted in Mexico that President Trump did not send condolences after the natural disaster.

In other words, providing this kind of humanitarian aid to the United States isn't new for Mexico, despite the fact that the current American president regularly treats the country as a rhetorical and political punching bag. With the country of Mexico now dealing with its own natural disasters, their government has rescinded offers to help in Texas.

Mexico, which sent brigades to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, first offered to send help to Texas on August 27, when Mr. Videgaray spoke to Mr. Abbott by telephone, the foreign ministry said. "He emphasized to Foreign Secretary Videgaray that the USA government stands ready to assist our neighbors in Mexico during this hard time".
