I wonder if Trump will deduct this from the bill for the wall?
Mexico’s government is reaching out to the U.S. to offer help for the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray spoke with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) by phone Sunday evening to offer aid “as good neighbors should always do in trying times,” the Dallas Morning News reported.
“As we have done in the past, Mexico stands with Texas in this difficult moment,” said Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the Mexican consul general in Austin.
“The government of Mexico takes this opportunity to express its full solidarity with the people and government of the United States for the damages caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas,” the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
Houston got 25 inches of rain over the weekend from the storm, with much more still expected. Harvey has caused massive deadly flooding and mass evacuations.
Mexico offered similar help in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, sending troops, food, medicine and water.
