Ask A352...I'm not the one who posted it.

CNN isn't on the list, which is good since they are left.
Why would we trust that list?

What? LOL. He was in a hotel for a few months, rented an apartment for a few months, and then moved back. All the while, he was working and sending money home.
These people lost their homes and livelihoods. What the hell would you want them to do?

Do you have anything constructive to add to the conversation? Or just more racial nonsense?

How many rich people "flee" to the US versus poor?

Why would a rich person, assuming they have a great job, leave that job versus a poor person who makes dirt wages?

But... they live IN the US already.
It's not so much "fleeing," but rather temporarily relocating in order to still be able to plive a comfortable, healthy lifestyle while the place rebuilds. Why stay in a place with no electricity and limited running water, in ravaged homes with hazardous roads (downed power lines, trees, eroding terrains, etc) if there is an option to temporarily relocated to Florida, a place of similar climate where a large portion of Spanish-speaking folks already live?

When middle class people move, they do so with a plan. They do not just hop on a plane to a strange place when something bad happens, looking for free FEMA housing. These are not middle class coming here.

They are not sending us their best from PR.

You don't PLAN for this to happen.

FEMA exists specifically for this. What do you think FEMA is?

Puerto Ricans are US citizens and can freely move or temporarily go in the whole United States wherever they please, just like all CONUS citizens. Many come to Orlando (often temporarily only) because they have family members here with whom they can stay temporarily until they can go back to their beloved island.

Many Puerto Ricans still have not recovered from hurricane Maria and now have to deal with more hardship.
