The prohibitive Jones Act has been waived by President Donald Trump in order for Puerto Rico to receive desperately needed Hurricane Maria relief. Under the Jones Act, non-American ships are prohibited from transporting goods from one American port to another. The announcement was first made Thursday morning by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who tweeted the news. According to Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke, the waiver will be in effect for 10 days.
