What about the people who got behind on their mortgages here in Florida from our last hurricane? They didn't get free housing... what about our families?

How do these people expect to make an impact if they don't speak English. I sympathize, but truth be told, most Americans are just annoyed by the language barrier. #nobueno

They're my people, but it's time for them to look for a job or go bsck to the island.

Boo Hoo... we have plenty of homeless vets that should come first.

Wish I could have all my rent paid for free then I would could afford more therapy and help for my son with Autism

More people unhappy with the help they have already got and want more by complaining said part is they will get it by crying

Yes they are Americans. We don't get free housing and free food. We work sometimes 2-3 jobs

Its not right..but there comes a time to look out for your own welfare and not depend on others..the older ones who can't work there should be some type of help in place for them...

There is plenty of jobs. They are just too relax. 7 months already have past since the hurricane. Plenty of time.

America in 2018. 😞. But we spend 50 million on missiles to help the people in Syria but not our own.

Oohhhhh...that's messed up! Telling them they were ok until May 14th and now the have to be out a month early?!?

Go back home hurricane is over ..free stuff over

It’s been long enough!! To get a job and housing

i sympathize but there problems stem from a non american corrupt government that has caused this for decades not the hurricane

Enough money for matching tshirts and banners...

They apologize but not all Puerto Ricans are the same, I moved to Florida because of Hurricane Maria and I started working fast and no government aid!

Go back and clean up your own homes.We don't get free rent .

Go to PR and fight with your Goverment!!! I moved to Florida from PR in last October and I bought a house and I Have a good job!!!

Get a job get an apt it's not our responsibility to take care if these people

But for how long do they need assistance?

Yes it is our responsibility since Puerto Rican’s are US citizens

Sorry folks it's not free we are paying for it taxes time to find your own way

This is an example of social parasitism. Get a job!

Because he was thrown out of his own habitat so tourist can vacation in it!

Maybe he just needed some beach time. Darn beachside people don’t want anyone or anything to bother them. Cats like water and they like fish! He’ll leave when he’s ready.

Poor creature...doesn't know where to go.

Boo hoo nature is in my yard!!!!

I hope nobody thinks they have to shoot it.

“On Edge” 😱😱😱 In other News, Coco Beach sells more “Depends” than any city in Florida.

I see foxes at night all over Orlando while splicing fiber.

I remember in the 60s, we would see them all the time. We lived in Melbourne Beach.

Hmm. It's really a shape-shifting neighbor. LOL

Leave him alone! His ‘tribe’ was there first!

Nicole Algeri, it’s our bobcat! 😜
