NAPOLITANO'S INITIAL STATEMENT ON HAITI DOESN'T ADDRESS TPS

Rate this Entry

Secretary of Homeland Security has just released the following statement on the Haitian earthquake (which, according to CNN, now is expected to have a death toll along the lines of the Asian tsunami):

"The entire Department of Homeland Security (DHS) extends its
sympathy for the devastation and loss of life in Haiti following last
night's earthquake--a disaster that has called the world to action in
response. The U.S. Coast Guard and the Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) are leading DHS actions to support the larger assistance
effort. Several Coast Guard cutters and aircraft have mobilized and are
on the ground to assist the humanitarian effort as needed. FEMA has
been in close contact with the State Department and USAID, the lead
U.S. federal response agencies, and stands ready to provide assistance
as requested. I am being kept closely apprised of the developing
situation, and the Department will continue to support the people of
Haiti and others affected by this tragedy. I encourage the American
people to donate what funds they can afford to disaster relief
organizations such as the American Red Cross to allow these voluntary
groups to provide goods and services to disaster survivors as quickly
as possible."

On background: 

The Coast
Guard Cutter Forward arrived off Port Au Prince this morning and was
the first U.S. asset on the scene. The cutter is equipped with a
helicopter flight deck, satellite communications equipment, and the
ability to provide coordination to military aircraft in the area. The
Coast Guard cutter Mohawk is scheduled to arrive this afternoon. Two
Coast Guard C-130 airplanes are flying the coast of Western Haiti this
morning doing damage assessments and searching for people in need of
assistance. Two Coast Guard helicopters are also forward deployed in
the area to provide rescue or other assistance.
