My name is Alex and I'm 25 years old. I want to open an LLC in Florida; however, I'm not a lawful permanent resident, I have a B-2(Tourism) Visa. The idea of the company is to be able to work remotely for US companies through that LLC despite the fact that I do not currently reside in the US. I was previously studying and I have an SSN( which needs approval from DHS). Is it possible to open an LLC and do I need to fill the papers for a person ITIN before filling up the Article of Organization.

The Social Security number or TIN will only be needed to set up the EIN with the IRS. So as long as you have that it should not be a issue. If you are here in the US working then you are in violation of your status unless you have a visa that permits you to do so. But you are free to operate the entity from your own country of course.
If you need clarification, I suggest that you consult with a lawyer in private and discuss your objectives in more detail. You can start by calling around to several for a free phone consultation, get some insights then pick the best fit to work with.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.
