I heard this morning that you folks in Texas have had widfires eat up acreage ecquivalant to the size of Puerto Rico.

My understanding is your Governor requested some help from FEMA in the form of aircraft and crew to fight the fires.
My understanding is that the feds said NO!!

I also understand we sent some equipment and money to Mexico to fight the same fires at the border.
And in the mean time someone is visiting somewhere discussing how the borders are secured and it's time for amnesty?

On behalf of the United States of America, my apologies to the fine folks in Texas.

You might want to check out the thread I started 4/25 "Texas Wildfires". Shows some pictures of the fire and damage.
