Does it ever occur to you people that maybe there really is a humanitarian crisis there and this isn't a deep state play to get more democrats? What if that were true? Would you want to help people worse off than yourself then? Baffles the mind, the level of heartlessness that (I imagine) otherwise good people can have on this.
Why can't other countries host them? Why specifically come to the US?

What is all the hullabaloo about here? ICE has been dropping illegals at the bus stations in Tucson, Phoenix, El Paso, and other south west cities for many years now. Big deal.

Reagan won 489 - 49, so it wasn't just the Mariel boat lift. It DID hurt Carter, especially when they discovered Castro sent criminals from prisons and the mentally ill from the hospitals to US with the refugees.

Thank your liberal legislators that have blocked any effort at keeping them out of this country-and for liberal judges that have demanded their release from detention facilities.

Or maybe he has written Florida off as a lost cause.
1.4 Million ex-felons can now vote plus tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans who came to Florida after Hurricane Maria will be able to vote with ballots printed in Spanish.

They're being crybabies because they're going to get that for which they've been advocating, and they don't like it.

Bingo! Time to live that for which you advocate, Dems. Actions. Not just feel-good words.

The felon voting rights was voted in by the citizens, but largely cancels by FL GOP. No one writes off Florida. That would be beyond foolish.

It's a routine maneuver from Republicans to do something, and then blame someone else.

Accountability is foreign language to them.

Then they are illegal. Horse before the cart.

They do. We are the richest country on Earth. Why can't we host the lions share? We are the lion.
