You cannot expect the government to be compassionate to the invaders with forced redistribution of wealth. The government cannot and will never be compassionate. We are 22 trillion in debt and can no longer take care of the world.

Let me guess , when the welfare check comes in , you believe that these people grasp it and say, OH THANK YOU AMERICAN TAXPAYER???? I am grateful for your compassion .

Talk to me when you head down there and help with your personal time , money, and energy..... Don't expect the government to help with stolen money, and dont expect any of these people to be Thankful .
I live 40 miles from the border in a small city. In the poorest state in the Union (except when Mississippi is). We are being inundated by 5,000 refugee seekers. We're helping them out as best we can without much help from the feds or you.

We don't do the right, compassionate thing because people are going to fall over us with appreciation. We do them because they're right. Letting people follow our laws in asking for refuge is not all that much of a burden for us.

Enough with the angry, bitter excuses for being mean. We have the money (more money than any other country on earth and a damn good lifestyle, despite overindulged whining of some people) and we don't have to help the whole world, but we do have to help the ones on our doorstep. We didn't ask for it, but here it is.

Florida is full of Hispanics, why not some more. Maybe start an income tax if you need more money to help them.

And no, Florida does not have sanctuary cities.

The last word is, they they will simply be released into the community since there are no facilities for them.

I think they should build a camp right next to Mar a Lago, and house them there.


Broward and Palm Beach counties bracing for planeloads of immigrants from crowded U.S. camps

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/po...5rm-story.html

The Trump administration is preparing to move hundreds of immigrants from overcrowded camps along the U.S. border to Broward and Palm Beach counties, local officials said Thursday.

Broward Mayor Mark Bogen and Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said they were told to expect two planeloads of immigrants each week, starting in about two weeks. The 270 weekly passengers — about 1,000 each month — would be split, with half going to Palm Beach County and half to Broward.

Local members of Congress, Florida’s two Republican senators and even Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said they didn’t know about it.

“The governor’s office was not informed of this decision,” his spokeswoman said in an email. “Florida counties do not have the resources to accommodate an influx of illegal immigrants.”

The federal government isn’t offering to help, he said.


uhm.. I thought the left was saying they are not illegal, but undocumented refugees


didn't the left say these were good people...so shouldn't Florida be welcoming them with open arms??


doesn't the left say that we don't give illegals anything....so what "resources" do the counties need to "accommodate" these undocumented refugees....where is the compassion for these poor hardworking nice refugees?

Keeping them at the border, and constructing facilities there would not change the number. A comprehensive overhaul of the entire system, including updating rules regarding asylum seeking would change the number.

Amen brother or sister.

On that note, isn't Trump's plan to only allow the brightest and best in going to take away good paying (not picking lettuce) jobs that could go to Americans?

So where do these hundreds of people go??? Are there organizations of some sort meeting them?

Taxpayer-funded housing. And all the other benefits and services they get: food, clothing beyond what they brought with them, health care, etc., are paid for by taxpayers because they've "claimed" asylum.

Of course, that drains the resources that poor US citizens need, so sucks to be them. They'll just have to take a backseat, as they're the lower priority, and do without. The Dems want an unlimited flood of poor migrants into the US, and they're pulling down the US GDP per capita (PPP: Purchasing Power Parity). The US fell from 10th richest country on Earth in 2017 to 12th richest in 2018 due to an increasing influx of poor migrants, mostly illegal aliens trying to "claim" asylum.

Compared to native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45% vs. 21% for natives) and Medicaid (50% vs. 23% for natives). As for the EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit), 31% of non-citizen-headed households receive cash welfare, compared to 19% of native households.

Releasing illegals into the community while they await their hearings is nothing new and has been standard practice for decades in the southwest. The illegals are turned over, in most cases, to charitable organizations who hold contracts with ICE to provide them food, clothing, and medical services. Most of them are relocated to other areas of the country - typically to relatives - where they await their court dates. The latest immigration trend is families claiming asylum status which is presenting great challenges to both immigration authorities and the contracted organizations. In any case, most of those going to Florida will only be there temporarily before they get relocated around the US.
