Over the last three days, confusion has erupted between the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Government of Puerto Rico. On Monday, NPR made a bold claim that FEMA was planning to immediately cut off aid to Puerto Rico at the end of January. This ignited the fire of legislators in Washington, members of both parties, arguing that there had been no such forewarning of this decision and that the people of Puerto Rico were still very much in need. Then on Wednesday, responding to the controversy, the New York Times quoted a FEMA spokesperson as saying the information NPR received was incorrect. January 31 was simply a benchmark for evaluating the status of ongoing aid to the US territory still devastated by the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
