        As reporters you HAVE a responsibility to report CORRECT information. Bahamians ARE ONLY required to have US visa if the are entering the United States from an island that DOESNOT have US preclearance. Bahamians can travel to the US With a valid passport and a clean Police Character Certificate.

              Of course USA has the right to accept whoever they want . And to request legal documents to do so . There are already illegal people living at the Bahamas .  Mostly Haitians living without legal permits .

                        Dirty S.O.B.s, You can’t imagine it unless you live through one of these disasters, you are weak, weary, hot, tired, hungry, thirsty and desperate. It is very, extra hard on babies and old folk. Please help the Bahamas and the people of Bahamas. Some people just don’t know tradgedy and have always had their needs met, Just think of yourself in the Abaco where all was destroyed and you survived, it could happen to any of us. If not by storm or water, by fire, by tornado, by earthquake, a disaster is just that disaster and people need help. How in the hell you gonna get documentation in a damn storm, y’all need to quit it. And yes I’m upset about it.

                                  Why Florida - it's only 60 miles away. There are 14 other districts of the Bahamas and most people are being relocated to the capital of the Bahamas.

                                  @Adam I was in NOLA for Katrina I know what hurricane can do. What part of there is a cat 5 heading for the Bahamas didn't they understand. Now the US has to pay for their stupidity? The Bahamas is a UK protectorate. Send them to England.

                                        This isn't true. You do not need a visa to travel from the Bahamas to the US by plane.

                                          AND -the Bahamas belong to the Brits. LET THEM TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN!!!!

                                                      This is so wrong. They lost everything, including their ID’s and passports. So how would they get a visa? And then they have to have money to get on the boats. So the poorest residents who don’t have money and a visa, are screwed. This is so wrong.

                                                        I wish there was something set up so that we can donate to help pay to get the ones who cant afford it to safety. Most of the times, the poor ones are the back bones of the country. I'm middle class in America and I highly doubt I'd be able to gather enough funds to get to a safe and dry place.

                                                        Chelsea Shurmantine well, I grew up in conservative home, and as adult tend to view those tidbits of news. I’ve never seen this guy. He’s good at explaining things and then when he’s running with the camera he’s good at narrating quickly. Too many reporters don’t seem emotionally connected to their content, which is critical in their business. Empathy is a must!

The United States will do what it has to do... And block the bad by their records ,,,why the Bahamas government is not there in full strength cleaning up and helping is beyond me. I don't understand
