What a lame answer.

Talk to those who foster kids and take in one or more with little notice. You certainly can make room for a Bahamian family. Put them up in your guest room or get some air mattresses and let them sleep in your living room

What you're really saying is that "agencies and groups" should take them in at the taxpayer's expense. Typical. You talk the talk but refuse to walk the walk.

Anyone who has documents like a visa or a passport can easily track their info down digitally, once again thatís not the issue here. The issue is ferry boats full of refugees being dumped in Florida sort of how Mexico dumps its unwanted at our borders. This hurricane just gave the Bahamas a perfect excuse to export its undesirables.

I said weíre not stuck on an island, we have easier access to help. Not its not easy but more-so relative to people who live on an island.

Trump haters have plenty of room in their homes for the Bahamians but they don't care about them, they just want to make more posts about "Orange Man Bad"

I say so what. Our own 600,000 homeless deserve our help first.

Trump claims Bahamians are very bad people, criminals, refuses to let helpless Bahaman refugees into the USA...
Certainly countries have bent over backward to help, after Katrina, for instance, Mexico's help was sincere and well played.
