This is a rather amusing story about an entitled jerk who moved to Austin and discovered that it wasn’t San Diego, but this stat stood out:
For every one person that moved out of the Texas state capital, 1.53 people moved in, according to the data.
Even before the pandemic, 687,000 Californians have relocated to Texas in the last ten years.
US Census Bureau data from 2010 to 2019 showed Californian transplants made up about 13 per cent of the entire population that has moved to the state since the beginning of the decade.
That’s like the entire populations of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, and West Allis moving to Texas in a single decade – with most of them being liberals. No wonder some of these conservative states are tinging purple lately. Lefties are fleeing the states they destroyed (California, Illinois, etc.) and spreading like locusts across the nation.
