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?

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

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

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

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

Go back home hurricane is over ..free stuff over

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

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

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

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...

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

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

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!

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

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!!!

Enough money for matching tshirts and banners...

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

We have so many homeless veterans that don't get free housing, they get squat!!!! This is BS......

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?

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

They have no idea how to support themselves. Sad!

How long have they been in these hotels that they couldn't find some sort of work?

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

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

I hope nobody thinks they have to shoot it.

On edge? Whoever is scared of that little kitty has no edge... I realized the government thought if they raise a bunch of wimps it keeps them "safer" but not if it all goes down

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.

Boo hoo nature is in my yard!!!!

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

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

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

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

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

Nicole Algeri, it’s our bobcat! 😜
