I guess you sometimes have to make that sacrifice. It will be negative 8 degrees F on Saturday up there. OMG I am from Florida and have traveled to Canada but have never experienced that Temp before. I am sure there are jobs in more moderate climates in the USA.

I am with you skeddy. They should stay in Orlando, with their own people, who speak both languages, and can direct them better. Especially, when many of them are older people, women with small children, and no husbands to help them, and the disabled. Read below, please.

And that's fine. But if come expect to live on welfare or FEMA, or even bring more crime, turn back around head the other direction.

They should venture further north to the welfare states like NY where they'll be sure to get more benefits than in FL. Upstate NY in particular has a Puerto Rican presence already and could use the population.

Nobody in my family has ever been on welfare. And not one of my friends. And yes, for women and children without a father, they can apply until they can get on their own two feet. We are AMERICAN CITIZENS and if we can help other countries like VENEZUELA, and MOSLEM countries to come into this country and apply for benefits, AMERICAN CITIZENS should come first.

Now that VENEZUELA is in turmoil, expect most of the country also to come to Florida. Already, Columbia is trying to close them out of their country. And Guatemala, is having a civil war.

My advise to you, MOVE OUT, if you do not welcome them here.

Ooook... That's going to be a very successful scheme. Yep!

I can guarantee you that the typical Puerto Rican that moved to Orlando after Maria has complained at least once about the 'cold winter' there. Where the sunshine strong, the days are still bright, most of the trees are green, and it warms up in the middle of the day and afternoon. This complaint is a given. Now you want to take those people from Orlando and shove them where? South Dakota? Are you serious? lol
Yea you can't really be picky about the weather when you are going through problems like this, lol.
