my point was that Florida is a border state; maybe not by foot.

I understand the point you were trying to make, which is that undocumented immigrants enter Florida more than many other landlocked states because of our coastline and proximity to Latin America., 

But you also said that Biden and Obama shipped them here and made them our problem, when the facts say that their population in Florida decreased substantially under Obama - Biden. 

That's all I was saying.

he was implying that Florida did not have an illegal alien problem like Texas and CA ala people coming over the border en masse.  My point was that if they didn't come here from over the border, regardless of whether by foot or water, then were they shipped here by those administrations; how else would they get here, right?  My point was that it is one or the other.  The other was a hypothetical to prove the point that Florida does have an immigration problem.  Capish?

These numbers are from 2019....

But probably fairly close to current. 

And as you can see, Florida's ranking is a distant fourth place compared to Texas and California.

So it's not altogether inaccurate to say the we don't have a problem..... the way Texas and California do.  

If your Obama - Biden comment was meant facetiously then my mistake.

The ones coming over the border and claim asylum are processed and sent out to other states. That part is true. But many come across the border and are never caught. They go where the work is.

Sabatini’s at it again over in Lake County but it looks like he’s as popular as day-old fish from Lake Apopka.

It’s worth noting, however, just how Republican Lake County is now. That’s why Lake has some of the worst transit in the region and why OBX, which from the beginning was looking for support from Tavares, has never had much of a chance.

Republicans only support transit in Florida if it lines their pockets like they did with SunRail and CSX.

Miami Judge Rejects ANOTHER “Voter Fraud” Case:

https://www.tampabay.com/news/florida-politics/2022/12/07/miami-judge-rejects-another-desantis-voter-fraud-case/

From The Tampa Bay Times

’…Barrar added, "Let this be a lesson to all not to use the legal system for political gain and waste taxpayer's hard earned money."’

“Why do Republicans in New Mississippi waste so much taxpayer money on worthless lawsuits?” ….Asking for a friend in the civilized part of the country.

Rep. Stephanie Murphy does an excellent job of explaining the electoral debacle that gave us New Mississippi even as Democrats across the country were overperforming in 2022:

The consultants who make huge commissions on political TV ads handily forget that most of the folks watching TV are older folks who aren’t the ones in the state likely to vote Democratic. The result: Democratic voters stayed away from the polls in droves and let the GQP turn us into New Mississippi.

Miami’s Republican Mayor, Francis Suarez, decided to go all in on trying to make the city America’s cyber currency capital. We know how that turned out.

Now, his goal is to attract wackadoodle Elon Musk’s increasingly antisemitic,  racist and homophobic company Twitter to South Florida.

We’re getting a pretty good idea of why large cities are rarely governed by Republicans, but hey, he fits right in here in New Mississippi!

Go, Anna!

Anna is amazing! Possibly the best current Florida politician. The sky's the limit on her potential and future.
