    Kissimmee, Florida - Puerto Rico's financial crisis is driving tens of thousands of people to leave the island in search of jobs and security.

    It is estimated that 1,000 Puerto Rican families a month are arriving in Florida, a US state that is already home to a million Puerto Ricans.

    But for many, life in the sunshine state is proving equally hard as they struggle to find affordable housing.
