Um, Trump officials took $10 million out of FEMA's hurricane 'response and recovery' budget and diverted it to ICE's 'detention beds' budget. It's the perfect snapshot of a cruel, venal, stupid administration
Having presided over a 9/11-level event last year, Trump, who thinks his architected tragedy a great success, diverts storm relief to fund concentration camps. The Republican Party still supports him. White Evangelical Christians remain enthusiastic.
Here's what we know: 1️⃣ Hurricane Florence is making its way towards the Carolinas and has the potential to be catastrophic. 2️⃣ DHS is choosing to reallocate nearly $10 million of disaster preparedness money from FEMA to ICE detention centers.
This administration has made the choice to let people die so they can put children in prison.
“As for FEMA, the notifying document states that the “Mission impact” will be “minimized,” as the agency will scale back training, travel, public engagement sessions and IT security support and infrastructure maintenance.” #EMGTwitter
Trump agenda: divert disaster funding to fund the administration’s policy disasters
every person who dies as a result of the hurricane will be in part a victim of white supremacy
This seems like a relevant bit of news for today.

Trump administration diverted nearly $10 million from FEMA to ICE detention program, according to DHS document 3,000 deaths in Puerto Rico wasn’t enough. This kind of transfer undermines FEMA.
Instead of saving lives in PR and in the US, Trump chose to jail little kids. $$$=priorities. Trump administration diverted nearly $10 million from FEMA to ICE detention program, according to DHS document
As hurricane approaches, document shows Trump administration diverted millions from FEMA to ICE detention program
As long as our executive branch has its priorities straight. I wonder if this is what Trump meant when he yelled at the people of Puerto Rico that they were "messing with our budget".
