Immigrants coming illegally from Mexico arent high education . They are there to replace American low wage workers. Youre ending up with a society of wealthy legal Americans (some of whom may be immigrants) and a foreign worker class doing the grunt work.
Yeah, but California has Silicon Valley, which attracts many high education foreigners. That was mentioned before.
Moreover (and this matters for Mobius' stats) income is not a constant. Low income, high education immigrants (domestic or foreign) may greatly improve their income in the state and when they emigrate back home they end up being counted as high income emigrants.
Overall, Californians clearly are fine with affairs by a large majority or else they wouldn't keep re-electing Democrats. And that's not about gerrymandered districts as in Wisconsin where the Democrats won the popular vote , but Republicans outrageously held a supermajority. We saw a 62/38 divide in the governor election as well.
What we're seeing here is Republican bashing of the Democrats' success story, California. Republicans cannot stand that their full control Republican orthodoxy policy experiment Kansas is a disaster, while the Democrats' full control Democratic party orthodoxy/progressivism experiment California is a clear success.
Hence the smear attacks on California, including misleading claims and cherrypicking about migration. Neither the Rich are fleeing the state because of taxes nor is investment depressed because of taxes nor does the middle class flee the state because of taxes, nor are the state finances still in a bad shape as they used to be with Republican policy elements (especially their refusal to increase taxes). Republicans were wrong about almost everything in California.
Meanwhile. Republican experiment laboratory Kansas is a gross failure.
“There never was a shot of adrenaline. If anything, that shot put the state on life support,” she said. “It’s the same thing that Trump is saying: there’s going to be tremendous job growth. Well, that didn’t happen either. It’s going to take an entire generation to undo this damage.”
Ochs said: “I just hope the country can listen to us. Don’t do what we did.”
Job growth in the state lags behind neighboring Missouri. The cuts to pass-through businesses gave some small businesses a small tax break – but didn’t spark the promised hiring boom.
The Republicans began to experiment with Kansas effective in mid-2012. That's when Democrats gained control in California and California's stats began turning for the better.
Meanwhile, Kansas net migration per 1,000 residents:
So, as mentioned with the figures of California, that's "barely perceptible" migration. Still, democratic policies experiment saw outmigration shrinking very much, Republican policies experiment saw outmigration starting and grow very much.
Republicans better stfu about migration effects of either party's policies when someone is in the room who may bring facts to the table.
A citizen should participate in the political process of the country, and contribute to the pursuit of good governance. This requires a certain amount of attention, knowledge, clarity of thought and reasoning. You guys should better shake off the influence of propaganda and work on meeting these requirements for a purposeful participation.
So far, you seem to believe too much in mythology that was spoon-fed to you from propaganda outlets.
Also, pay more attention to science and less to obviously incompetent ideologues (people who comment on many if not all areas of policy, sch as talk radio hosts, political commentary hosts, journalists without specialisation). Pay attention to how often pundits were wrong in the past. That guy who had beat the drums for the Iraq War? Don't listen to him about Iran or Venezuela. That guy who warned about inflation from 2010-2016? Worthless commentator on all economic affairs.
Or be non-diligent, enjoy your echo chambers, avoid cognitive dissonance and put no effort in. Politicians who care only about their own benefits and ideology will exploit your support thoroughly (but not thankfully).
