It seems grooms are getting more scarce in Florida. Anyone else have this problem? Now the legal grooms are asking for more money too. A friend of mine had a disgruntled former employee threaten to turn him in for employing undocumented workers. I’m very concerned for staffing for season.

Just a heads up for everyone driving into Florida without a USA passport they are checking your immigration status. My groom with Canada plates on my truck was stopped. I understand that they will be allowed to stop any vehicles with plates from Canada or Mexico and check passports and visas. You can be detained without the proper documents.

I had most of my staff scooped up years ago in an immigration sweep. Let me tell you how difficult it was to have no staff and to care for the horses and clients freaking out.
I have a friend going through a messy divorce with forensic accountants and she had to change her staff because she was paying grooms in cash and was no longer able to do that with every penny being traced.

Anyone with grooms that are not here with a proper work visa. There is a giant risk if a groom gets hurt and has to go to the hospital that they will be reported to immigration. DeSantis doesn’t want florida tax payers to pay these bills so be prepared to pay your grooms hospital bills my fellow employers. Make sure to get them proper travel medical insurance if possible to be safe.


“Since Senate Bill 1718 went into effect at the start of July, meaning Florida hospitals accepting Medicaid — acute care, critical care, and children's hospitals — are now tasked with asking hospital admission and emergency department patients if they are U.S. citizens or lawfully present in the country.”

Has anyone else noticed the amount of police driving around Palm beach point? Someone told me that they are going to start checking papers at the gate and making immigration arrests. Is this actually legal or just a rumor?
