Ambassador Jacobson Statement on the Earthquake

Mexico City, September 21, 2017—“Like everyone in Mexico City, Puebla and Morelos, I lived through the moments of anguish during last Tuesday’s earthquake. As president Trump noted, we are with our Mexican brothers and sisters in this critical time. I am moved by the palpable expressions of solidarity from so many citizens. I am deeply proud that my government deployed a Foreign Disaster Assistance team along with an urban search-and-rescue team from the Los Angeles County Fire Department. They arrived last night and will work hand in hand with their Mexican counterparts in these difficult hours to continue with the rescue efforts, carry out damage evaluation and deliver assistance. We are with you and we will continue being there for you.”
