President Trump, Sec. Mattis, and DOD should send the Navy, including the USNS Comfort, to Puerto Rico now. These are American citizens. https://t.co/J2FVg4II0n

The need is dire, and will be for many months if not years. And since the GOP perceives even Puerto Ricans as the wrong kind of American citizens, it will be a battle to get any government support. Who’s got links for the groups that can make best and fastest use of our donations?
Commentors have suggested a couple already:
The Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos”: A Hurricane Relief Fund for Hurricane Maria Victims in Puerto Rico
First lady of Puerto Rico Beatriz Rosselló’s United for Puerto Rico
And GoFundMe’s Hurricane Maria Relief Page, which includes fund drives dedicated to Dominica as well.
Puerto Rico officials describe “apocalyptic" conditions after hurricane. No power; no phones; vast destruction. https://t.co/OFt3y9hO7A
