Migrant flights; insurers leaving Florida

Florida Immigrant Coalition

The state of Florida transported more migrants across the country. This time the asylum seekers were flown from the U.S. Texas border in El Paso to Sacramento, California. We take a closer look at the state’s newly expanded migrant flight program. Plus, we also hear more about the response on the ground in Sacramento.

Why are more property insurers leaving the state? 

While most Floridians know how to prepare for hurricane — such as stocking up on water and canned goods and having a plan of evacuation — it’s also time to review your insurance coverage.

But as of this week, there are fewer insurance companies available to Florida homeowners who also face ever-increasing premiums. We speak with a national insurance expert about the state’s growing insurance crisis.


  • Mark Friedlander, spokesman for the Insurance Information Institute.
