Earlier: Conservatives Leave California For A More Recognizable America
Here’s an update from California. It’s still overtaxed and diverse — two factors that are connected because foreigners like big government and newbies require special services, like English classes, in school designed for non-speakers.
Americans have largely quit moving to the state and citizens are leaving, but immigrants still are flooding in, shown by the 11 million foreign-born residents as of 2017.
Here’s an update from Fox News reporter William La Jeunesse:
Political, economic fallout from California exodus https://t.co/6r4b64BAcW— VDARE (@vdare) February 14, 2020
WILLIAM LA JEUNESSE: California is growing wealthier, more liberal, more expensive — forcing 52 percent of residents to consider leaving, including 71 percent who identify as conservative. Many businesses already have — this company leaving LA for Texas which is set to add three Congressional seats; California is losing one. . .
CEO Magazine calls California America’s worst state for business; quality of life — the worst according to US News. Add taxes, traffic, housing, energy costs — almost 700 companies left in the last two years. . .
Yet California is growing, thanks to immigrants from abroad. Its diverse economy, among the world’s largest, attracts more college grads than any other state. . .
Some super-rich and retirees are leaving, but overall the state is gaining those that make over $125 grand, losing those that make under 75.
