Does Florida Government know who's coming?

Floridians, I just called the Governors office & asked if they had notice of which cities in Florida would be receiving illegals from Texas/Arizona. They had no idea if any such list existed & advised me to call Homeland Security. I find it hard to swallow that our State Government is not going to get any kind of heads up if illegals are coming here. She could not even tell me which Florida State Department might have any knowledge on this information. This person worked in cabinet affairs in Governors office. Does this sit right with you? We have to communicate with the Feds & our State Government will remain ignorant of the spillover? Maybe you can call & do better.

Thanks for your comments Pam.

Any word on how these illegals were given Florida as a destination to "resettle?"  I wonder if we will get any answers when we return to the phone lines tomorrow to (again) ask our elected leaders.

I wonder if those who feel we are not being compassionate have taken a look in their own communities at the needs we have right here. I know we have children being advertised like abandoned puppies. I have seen the children asking for someone to please adopt them & become their foster parents. There is a tremendous problem with child slavery. Many of These unaccompanied illegal children are unfortunately going to face this ugly disgusting possibility.

I have seen Broward & Miami Dade county food banks begging for more supplies as they are running low. These are for our citizens already here. We all know how wonderfully our vets are getting treated. Are they receiving the instant care the illegals are? Do you actually believe they should be thrown to the back of the line while we take care of people who are not even legal in our country? Another Veteran just DIED as he had to wait a HALF hour for an ambulance & died while doing so.

I wonder if those who feel we are not being compassionate give RIGHT NOW to their local food banks, volunteer any time to children with no parents living in our own country, or send their own money to any country with poot starving children, i.e., Haiti, Jamaica, Sudan, etc. etc ....

What do you think will happen if a hurricane hits Texas? Where will the money and help come from to help our OWN AMERICAN citizens ? Will those people who are crying to be compassionate be some of the first or last to volunteer their time, money, & effort?  They are stretched to the max!!!!

One last thought. I live in Miami Dade County. A woman from Honduras stated she was taking her children back to Honduras to visit her relatives . She stated on the radio that the situation was no worse than it has been over the years & that the reason this was happening was exaggeration of the truth. Since, most of us do not travel down there we have to consider this possibility. I wish more citizens who have come here legally from central America & have knowledge of what is happening down there through their relatives would speak up & tell the truth.

‎Below is e-mail I received back from Office of FL refugee resettlement I had written too.
So, I think best thing is to call our county commissioners, Florida Reps, & Gov office to see if they have any news. I heard our Miami Dade County School superintendent on radio last week. Mr. Carvallo said they are asking for more Fed funds. They are requesting $1950 per student above state funding to educate hundreds of students flooding into the district.
This is just for education never mind help with food, clothing, medical, etc they will need.....
Ms. Evans,
Thank you for contacting us.
The Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program is a federal program. The Department of Children and Families' Refugee Services program is not involved in the custody, transport or placement of ‎UACs.  I am therefore  unable to address your questions. 
The federal Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement Is the entity with responsibility for UACs, including placing them with relatives in states throughout the country while the immigration authorities determine their future.  As UACs are generally in removal (deportation) proceedings, they are not eligible for services offered by our program, nor for other state or federal benefits.
Additional information is available from HHS at
Thank you,

I plan to call again on Monday, July7th.  There has to be an answer by now.  I need to follow up with a few other calls to see if some of our elected leaders are "in the loop" on this issue.

Shame on Gov. Scott's if his office does not know about the illegal alien invasion. I moron would know all theses illegals will become Democrat voters sooner or later. It is very difficult to support a Governor who cares more about ILLEGALS than Florida LEGAL residents. Yes , I know Charlie C. would be worse, but when are we going to say "enough is enough". All illegals should be sent back immediately . If you want to help poor children in foreign countries, send your own money to them directly. I do not want my tax dollars to pay their welfare here.

I hope we find a way to care for these poor souls, these children who have been cast out and abused. It would be shameful to view them in any way other than the least among us. Shame on those from their homelands who care so little for them, may they reap from this harvest of callousness only misery. What these children have endured should be met with only compassion.

I called the Governor's office and had the same response, "knowing nothing about the situation but is aware that the children are coming to Fl."  She added, "We've had a lot of calls on this."  I was given Senator Rubio and Senator Nelson's phone numbers and called.  I only got thru to Senator Nelson's office.  I am expecting a call back tomorrow with details on where the illegal children are going here in Florida and the details of their care.  We will see.

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
