From Washington Examiner:

“To avoid large lines of ships piling up, they instituted a triage system. You now need to wait your turn to come ashore, and if you have to wait because there isn’t enough room, you typically hang out at sea,” R Street Institute Director of Competition Policy Ashley Nunes told the Washington Examiner.

“I don’t know if I would say [the new queuing system] was done to make the administration look better — they are arguing it’s for environmental reasons — but the optics aren’t ideal,” Nunes admitted.

Asked if Buttigieg played any role in developing this new wait-at-sea system, R Street’s Nunes replied, “Not that I am aware of.”
