Meanwhile, two major shipping firms serving Puerto Rico have said goods delivered to San Juan's port have been stranded due to a lack of diesel fuel for trucks and damage to the island's road network. Right now we have enough fuel. A similar law called the Passenger Vessel Act was passed in 1886 and prevented foreign built and owned ships from ferrying passengers from one US port to another.

Hillary Clinton weighed in on Trump and Puerto Rico, his criticism of the National Football League and private emails sent by members of his White House during a SiriusXM SIRI, -0.91% town hall event on Monday. Critics say it is a protectionist law, and multiple studies say it has cost the Puerto Rican economy billions of dollars.

"I'm no Trump fan, but at this point I don't have anything negative to say about what we've seen so far", said Soto-Class, whose think tank plans to lobby Congress so Puerto Rico gets the maximum funds available to rebuild after Maria.

Gregory Moore, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, an office of Homeland Security, said in a statement on Tuesday that an agency assessment showed there was "sufficient capacity" of USA -flagged vessels to move commodities to Puerto Rico.

The Jones Act was put in place after World War II, when the threat of German U-boats (which sunk nearly 5,000 ships during the war) was still fresh. "And that is critical". The Jones Act has also been suspended by former President George W. Bush after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and by former President Barack Obama after Superstorm Sandy in 2012, according to the Wall Street Journal. The relief effort for the military was "both professional and personal", Dunford said in a reference to service members who have families in Puerto Rico.

Tropical Storm Lee forms in the Atlantic, joining Hurricane Jose
Officials in the Dominican Republic urged people to leave areas prone to flooding and said fishermen should remain in port. That area was hit two weeks ago by Tropical Storm Lidia, which flooded streets and homes and killed at least four people.

The White House is expected to send Congress a request for a funding package for Puerto Rico in the next few weeks, a senior congressional aide said.

USA -based shipping firms also insist that the issue isn't the number of ships available but the ability to unload cargo in Puerto Rico and transport it from ports to other areas. "I mean, that place was just destroyed", Trump said. A spokesperson for Customs and Border Protection on Monday said "t$3 he limitation is going to be port capacity to offload and transit, not vessel availability".

"Trump wanted the message to be loud and clear, 'We care, ' " Naftali said.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke waived the law earlier this month to help ease fuel shortages in the Southeast following hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Thomas LaCrosse, the Pentagon's director of defense support to civil authorities, said US officials discussed sending the Comfort to Puerto Rico over the weekend, but ultimately decided not to because ports were not ready to handle a ship that large after the storm. It's the higher prices Puerto Ricans must pay. "But we have a lot of shippers, and a lot of people - a lot of people that work in the shipping industry that don't want the Jones Act lifted". McCain wrote in a letter to DHS Tuesday. Officials at the Homeland Security Department, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the issue by name, said the bottleneck is with unloading cargo at the island's damaged ports and getting the supplies inland. Waivers must be based on whether or not the there are enough US ships to keep up with shipping needs, which DHS is saying there are.
