Florida's governor has activated emergency services for evacuees in Israel

He’s ordering flights to bring Floridians back from Israel. Did the State Department ask for his help? If not, is he interfering with the efforts to bring people out of Israel? He’s using Florida taxpayers to do this. I’m just wondering if this is truly helping or political. If he’s helping why does it only refer to Florida residents..why not anyone?

I guess he feels he has to do something to bamboozle those remaining...

And he'll have to make room for them by shipping more migrants to NYC and SF.

Soon there will be no laborers in Florida

Not sure if he has started this political stunt yet.
He also said no one from Biden administration talked to Americans yet but there’s the 60 min interview about Biden speaking with families.

to him, but the US State Dept. Is already sending planes and really doesn't care where the citizens are from.

If you are talking about his executive order, that's not what he did.

He in essessence ordered his staff to work with the federal govt to facilitate the return of Florida residents who may be stranded.

In short, he ordered his staff to write an emergency memo to offer assistance to the federal government.

He isn't sending any planes anywhere.

Local news tonight reported nothing about working with the State Department. These funds he wants to use come from Florida taxpayers for Florida residents trying to get out of Israel
