Trump administration didn't charge people for Puerto Rico evacuations - but it did charge DominicansPresident Donald Trump’s administration is not forcing Puerto Rican hurricane victims to pay to be evacuated from the island, contrary to some reports, but evacuees from the island of Dominica will still owe money. The US State Department requires all US citizens to repay the costs of an evacuation, but this rule only applies to US citizens based internationally. Puerto Rico is US territory so evacuations do not fall under the department’s jurisdiction, officials have explained.
