Cuomo deploys National Guard to US Virgin Islands

Cuomo deploys National Guard to US Virgin Islands

Cuomo planned to return home to New York Friday evening.

"The governor understands that it will not make New Yorkers safer when working people avoid law enforcement and state government for fear of deportation", Choi said in a statement.

"New Yorkers know first-hand the damage Mother Nature's fury can cause, and we are proud to be providing expertise, equipment, and personnel to support the U.S. Virgin Islands on their path to recovery, because helping neighbors in need is the NY way", Cuomo said.

Andrew Cuomo has signed an executive order prohibiting state agencies or state officers from inquiring about or sharing a person's immigration status. NY has already deployed aircraft and personnel to help with search and rescue.

Hurricane Irma hit the U.S. Virgin Islands on September 6th, leaving St. Thomas and St. John heavily damaged after powerful winds at speeds greater than 150 miles per hour.

Cuomo said the Caribbean islands have been devastated, and Kenneth Mapp, the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands, invited him to visit.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announces a new wave of funding to combat the opioid crisis across New York State. We have a special connection with NY, as more US Virgin Islands residents list their place of birth as NY than any other state in the nation. Mapp is a Brooklyn native and was a New York City police officer.

He said 100 members of the New York Army National Guard and 30 members of the New York State Police will help with security in St. Thomas.

The trip likely will fuel speculation about Cuomo's interest in running for president in 2020.

"I love what I'm doing". "We call on local law enforcement to follow the Governor's lead and look forward to working with the administration to successfully implement the order to best serve public safety and justice for all". "I focus on one thing at a time".
