Before WELLS, CORTIÑAS, and LAGOA, JJ. WELLS, Judge. Affirmed. See Flores v. State, 35 Fla. L. Weekly D1562, D1562-63 (Fla. 4th DCA 2010) (stating that when the trial court advises that a plea may result in

deportation, the defendant has the affirmative duty to speak up if the attorney has promised something else and that the "court's warning that [the defendant] may be deported based on his plea cured any prejudice that might have flowed from counsel's alleged misadvice"); Bermudez v. State, 603 So. 2d 657, 658 (Fla. 3d DCA 1992) (holding that any prejudice flowing from misadvice of counsel regarding deportation consequences of a plea is cured by the trial court's inquiry whether the defendant understood that he could be deported as a consequence of the plea).
