Florida Gov. Rick Scott has sharpened his opposition to the federal governments separation of children from adults who attempt to illegally enter the U.S., specifically linking the policy to President Donald Trump and declaring in a letter late Tuesday that This practice needs to stop now.
Scott expressed his position in a letter to Health and Human Services Sec. Alex Azar seeking information about an HHS-run facility in Homestead that is housing 94 minors who were separated from their parents.

Predictably, Scott has been totally bribed and bought off by the cheap labor lobby led by the Chamber of Commerce, Mark Zuckerberg, the Koch Brothers, George Soros and Sheldon Adelson. Scott is now basically one of the "Paul Ryan Republicans" trying to get a Senate seat, a sold-out RINO who'd be more than happy to flood the US with mass immigration and cheap labor, suppressing US salaries and permanently changing the country's demographics so that we're no longer a Western country, let alone one supporting the most basic freedoms-- like free speech and the rights of gun owners-- that made America great in the first place. He must be stopped. Scott himself knows that all the whining and media frenzy about kids being separated from parents was a fiction concocted by the Washington Post and other MSM outlets. It was a misrepresentation of a basic policy the US has had in place for decades and that Obama himself used constantly, played up by the MSM for emotional effect and used as a battering-ram to try to force a vote on Paul Ryan's traitor amnesty bill, supported by the Koch Brothers and other open-borders pushers. Breitbart and a whole lot of other outlets very successfully debunked it and there's no doubt Scott knows the real truth, but he panders to the cheap labor mass immigration lobby since he's in the Koch Brothers' back pocket. This is the time for a true conservative challenger to step up and Cantorize this RINO sell-out, along with Scott's wishy washy stands on the 2nd Amendment, he is a traitor to everything the conservative movement stands for!
I knew Scott was trash when he supported new gun control in Florida.
Florida: elect this man to the Senate at your own peril. He is a younger John McCain, and we will not be rid of him for decades.
Florida is getting ready to elect another Bush League Republican like Rubio, hell bent on turning the USA into North Mexico.
AZ is being manipulated into electing McSallycain as the next Flake.
The state parties are still largely in the control of Bush League Republicans.
GOOS GOD!! Rick Scott, you are an IDIOT!!! Get real or you don’t get our votes!
Rick Scott needs to shut his mouth NOW.
This guy is the ultimate moistened-finger-in-the-wind politician.
The only good thing you can say is that he’s not Bill Nelson.
It looks like it’s between him and Nelson. Now that Scott has shown his true colors with the gun bill and blaming Trump for the child separation I may not vote for a Florida senator.
It’s not a ‘practice’, dumbass.
IT’S THE LAW!........................
Not everything is as it seems. The Palm Beach Post is delighted to see you angry at Rick Scott.
Rick isn’t a Rubio type RINO or a Curbelo type RINO, believe me.
He did succumb to the idiots who thought rifles shouldn’t be sold to people old enough to vote or fight in the military, and I think that was a stupid thing to do. But I think he knew the NRA would fight that in court, and they are.
Let’s not equate Rick with Bill Nelson. Nelson is much much worse. Rick has at least run a business successfully. :) This is more than we can say for Rubio or Curbelo.
Trying to sabotage his reelection ?
Yeah that’s my worry, Rick Scott seems incapable of getting real, he’s stuck in his own delusions of grandeur and swimming in so much money from the Kochs and other cheap-labor lobby pushers that he’s lost touch with reality. He would lead the GOP to an epic defeat if he got the nomination for the Senate race.
Scott is not running for Governor again.
He wants a new job.
As Amnesty Senator from Florida.
Yeah, Scott’s betrayal on gun rights should have been bright bloody red flag to any conservative voter years ago. He hasn’t changed his stripes a bit.
I’m not even sure of that faint praise, at least with Nelson you know what you’re getting, with Rick Scott your getting another Marco Rubio opportunist who says and goes and does whatever his bribers ask him to, poses as a conservative with an R by his name but then betrays and backstabs everything the conservative movement is built around— amnesty, gun rights, the rule of law. Nothing is worse than a RINO traitor quisling, and Scott is right in the Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham mold of bought and sold RINO shills.
Yeah. Meant to say election.
Florida can keep him. Don’t need another Rubio.
We might as well play the Democrat game and say what’s needed to win.
In this case, I could CARE LESS what he says - if he’s able to flip the seat and then votes for Trump’s judges, that is ALL THAT MATTERS.
Since you live in SoFlo you no doubt know the entire saga about Rick Scott and alimony reform.
The Florida Legislature passed legislation TWICE that would have eliminated alimony in Florida divorce cases. Rick Scott had said that he would sign it.
The first bill he vetoed because it was retroactive, which he felt would be unfair to women already dependent upon alimony and toss them onto the public dole.
So the Legislature redid the bill. It passed again, this time without the retroactive provision. It went to Scott’s desk.
At this point the NOW gang decided for the first time in history that they really supported the idea of stay-at-home moms. They lobbied fiercely, and one day before it would have become law without his signature Scott vetoed the bill.
Thus he reneged on his promise twice. I don’t have a dog in the fight when it comes to divorce law in Florida, but to me that is all emblematic of a jelly-spined individual.
Elect him to higher office at your peril.
