Mixed reaction to Gov. Cuomo's visit to US Virgin Islands after Irma

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the deployment of members of the New York National Guard and personnel from the New York State Police to the U.S. Virgin Islands after touring areas impacted by Hurricane Irma.

"We have so much family connections throughout New York State that come from the U.S. Virgin Islands", Assemblyman John McDonald said.

"In the wake of Hurricane Irma, I invited Governor Cuomo to the US Virgin Islands to tour the damage and assist in our recovery effort", said Gov. Kenneth Mapp. "It's not a surprise to me at all".

Cuomo's office says the governor will travel with an assessment team from his administration.

"Transportation for this humanitarian mission was donated to the state delegation by John Catsimatidis at no cost to taxpayers", said Governor Cuomo's spokesperson in a statement.

Cuomo already sent 130 members of the New York Air National Guard's 106th Rescue Wing, along with equipment, to the U.S. Virgin Islands following Irma. "Guidance from JCOPE was sought and they determined that based on the emergency situation and circumstances this donation was permissible under the relevant state laws and guidelines". Mapp was born in Brooklyn, New York, and attended both New York City Community College and the City University of New York.

"New York became the Empire State due to the contributions of immigrants from every corner of the globe and we will not let the politics of fear and intimidation divide us", Cuomo said. But that's not bothering too many legislators at the Capitol. But I felt a real strength and a real sense of resilience in people. More U.S. Virgin Islands residents list their place of birth as NY than any other state in the nation. After being struck by Irma last week, the U.S. Virgin Islands couldn't look less like a tourist destination.
