Lm Beach police along Lake Worth Lagoon confirmed to Acesparks that they had checked leaflets affixed to cars with New York license plates on a wealthy island that said, “If you’re one of those ‘awakened’ people — Florida leave. You’ll be happier elsewhere, and so will we. “
It was unknown who published the flyers.

“Free speech, first correction,” said Debbie, a Florida native who recently moved from New Jersey. “They’re not violent, not physically. They’re rightly pointing out in their First Amendment, and we don’t want them here, we’re never going to change that.”
Claudette, who visited Connecticut from Florida, told Acesparks: “It’s stupid because waking up means you’re current, aware, and sensitive. So when someone has a problem being aware of a problem, it’s pure ignorance.”
Gregory of Florida says he doesn’t think the flyers were posted by anyone from Florida.
“Our governor, [Ron] DeSantis, we love it, a lot of people don’t like it, ”Gregory said.
Susie, who visited Florida from New York City, disagreed.
“Your governor is stupid, that’s number one,” Susie said, pointing to DeSantis. “The second number, I think, is that this awakened thing went too far, on the other side of this book.”
“So I think people should just let people in,” he continued. “We need to talk to each other more, we need to listen to each other more, and maybe this country won’t be as terrible as it is now.”
