California’s poor flock to Texas as West Coast homes and jobs fall out of reach

They got tired of California dreamin’.

Skyrocketing home prices and fierce competition for jobs in the Golden State are prodding poor families to pack up and head to Texas. Our state was the top destination for low-income residents leaving California between 2005 and 2015, according to a recent data analysis by the Sacramento Bee.

In that time period, about 293,000 impoverished people left California for Texas and nearly half that figure moved into California from our state, for a net loss of 156,000 people, the Bee reported.

The fact that people are moving in large numbers to Texas is an indicator that the state has economic growth and opportunity, said state demographer Lloyd Potter.

“Of course, the ideal is for Texas to be adding more higher-income, higher-skill kinds of jobs relative to lower-income, low-skill, low-education kinds of jobs,” Potter said. “But you need the whole spectrum in a functioning economy.”

In past decades, many Californians have resettled next door in Arizona, Nevada and Oregon, said James Gaines, chief economist at the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University.

They still do. The Bee’s analysis shows that after Texas, those three states are the largest recipients of California’s low-income migration.

‘You Are Europe’s Future’: Erdogan Tells Turks in Europe Have Five Kids, Not Three

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday urged Turks resident in Europe to have five children, telling the millions strong diaspora community “you are Europe’s future.”

Turkey and Europe are locked in a bitter spat after Germany and the Netherlands blocked Turkish ministers from holding rallies to campaign for a ‘yes’ vote in next month’s referendum on expanding Erdogan’s powers.

Erdogan has repeatedly accused EU states of behaving like Nazi Germany over what he sees as discrimination against Turks, in comments that have caused outrage across the continent.

“From here I say to my citizens, I say to my brothers and sisters in Europe… Educate your children at better schools, make sure your family live in better areas, drive in the best cars, live in the best houses,” said Erdogan.

“Have five children, not three. You are Europe’s future.”

“This is the best answer to the rudeness shown to you, the enmity, the wrongs,” he added in a televised speech in the city of Eskisehir, south of Istanbul.

Some 2.5 million Turkish citizens resident in Europe are eligible to vote in elections in their homeland. But millions more people living in EU states have Turkish origins.

The Truth About America’s Survival | Demographics and the 2016 Election – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

While many are unaware of the coming demographic winter in the United States, the future of freedom in the country will be decided in the 2016 election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Immigration, voting patterns and demographics are the only true issues that matter in this upcoming election, as Hillary Clinton’s amnesty to the 11-30+ million illegal immigrants in America will prevent small government ideas from being politically viable for centuries.

Parliament: Danes Should Not Become the Minority in Denmark

The Folketing, Denmark’s unicameral parliament, has passed a resolution stating that Danes should not become minorities in Danish communities, as figures show the migrant and migrant-descended population are now a majority in Brøndby Strand and Odense.

“Parliament notes with concern that today there are areas in Denmark where the number of immigrants from non-Western countries and their descendants is over 50 percent,” the resolution states.

“It is parliament’s opinion that Danes should not be a minority in residential areas in Denmark.”

Denmark, like many other European countries, saw a surge in sexual assaults and harassment by migrants after they began to arrive in large numbers.

Rafi Ibrahim, a Syrian who has been settled in Denmark for many years, told reporters that the new arrivals find it difficult to control themselves around Western women.

“If they see a girl, they go nuts. They simply can’t handle it,” he said.

“In Syria and many other countries, it is not normal for a strange woman to smile at you. Those girls who are harassed aren’t necessarily scantily-dressed or drunk. Sometimes it is enough just to be a girl.”

Danish immigration minister Inger Støjberg confessed in late 2016 that “integration in Denmark has failed”, following a damning report on criminality and unemployment in thirty-one increasingly migrant-dominated ghettoes.

“In my opinion it is because we have been too scared to set out clear demands to the people coming to Denmark,” she said.

Intelligence Agency Warns Of 15 Million African Migrant Surge By 2020

New estimates revealed by the Austrian Military Intelligence agency show that the migrant crisis is far from over as they predict a surge of economic migrants from West Africa in the coming years.

The report by the intelligence agency showed that between the years of 2013-2016 around half a million migrants had traveled from various parts of Africa to Europe. It also found the vast majority of the movement did not come because they were fleeing war or oppression, but rather for economic reasons and the agency believes that trend will continue to rise in the years ahead Bild reports.

Of all African migrants who arrived in the three-year period since 2013, the largest amount came form the war-torn country of Eritrea, one of the few African countries deemed as unsafe enough to grant legitimate asylum. Some 100,000 migrants travelled from Eritrea and 80,000 came from Nigeria, often considered one of the safer countries in West Africa and the country with the largest population on the continent.

A sharp rise in unemployment across the African nations will lead to a massive increase of economic migrants by 2020, the agency predicted. This surplus of workers who will be unable to find a job in Africa could reach as high as 15 million people by the year 2020, a number that dwarfs the just over 1 million migrants who have arrived over the course of the migrant crisis.

Rome on verge of WAR between migrants and the poor, mayor of Italy’s capital warns (Video)

Rome is on the verge of war as friction grows between poor Italians and and an increasing number of migrants, the city’s mayor has warned.

Virginia Raggi told an immigration summit of European city leaders mayors need to be the first to welcome refugees with “warmth, shelter and accommodation”.

She was speaking just days after a Moroccan family was prevented from moving into a council flat given to them by the authorities after neighbours shouted: “We do not want these n*****s.”

Italy has seen the largest increase in migrant arrivals to Europe this year after the European Union (EU) made a deal with Turkey which meant migrants headed to Italy instead of Greece.

Ms Raggi, said: “Our cities seem to be closed off with their self-interest and the mayors are the ones who should give the first reception.

“We must guarantee human warmth, shelter, accommodation.

“The attitude that we have seen, unfortunately, offends our dignity as mayors and people.

“For this we must take action, even more in the suburbs, which are the most abandoned parts of the city, where there is a risk of a war between the poor.”

‘We’re being invaded right now’

Michael Savage describes Obama’s ‘Scorched Earth’ approach to demographic warfare.

History isn’t about tolerance or peace or understanding. History is about war. History is about conflict. History is about invasions – and the most consequential invasion in human history is well underway.

“We’re being invaded right now,” says talk-radio host and best-selling author Dr. Michael Savage.

“We’re being invaded from the south. We’re being invaded from the north, from the east and from the west. You might say, ‘Well, that’s the way of things,’ and you might get used to it. They’re here, they’re near, they’re everywhere. The question is, why are liberals so quick to embrace this invasion, and why are traditionalists and conservatives like myself so resistant to erasing the borders, language and culture of this great nation?”

More than 3 million foreigners came to the United States in 2014 and 2015 according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies. The foreign-born population in the United States, now standing at 43.3 million people, is at an all-time high. Immigrants now make up almost 14 percent of the population, the highest percentage in 105 years.

And the rate of immigration is increasing. If current demographic projects are left unchanged, immigrants will compose a record share of the population in seven years.

Record 64.7 million non-English speakers in U.S.

If you leave the President blank and don’t vote for Trump you will be writing a blank check for Hillary’s dream of open borders and globalization – this is a must read! – Janine Turner

A new report shows explosive growth in the number of U.S. residents 5 years of age and older who speak a language other than English at home.

The report by the Center for Immigration Studies, which breaks down new Census data, shows a record number of new immigrants in the country whose primary language is not English, and the fastest growing language is Arabic.

In 2015 a record 64.7 million U.S. residents spoke a foreign language at home – up 5.2 million since 2010 and up 1.5 million in just the last year. The largest percentage increase from 2010 to 2015 was for speakers of Arabic, Hindi (an India language) and Urdu (Pakistan’s national language).

More than one in five U.S. residents now speaks a foreign language at home, according to the CIS report.

“A common language is the means by which immigrant groups communicate with each other and with the larger society,” said Steven Camarota, the center’s director of research and co-author of the new report.

Unlivable: Exodus from California Increases Due to Cost of Living

Crippling home prices, traffic congestion, high taxes and the rising cost of living have all contributed to an increase in “net outward migration” from California, particularly in the Bay Area.

“They are tired of the expense of living here,” Scott McElfresh, a certified moving consultant, told the San Jose Mercury News. “They are tired of the state of California and the endless taxes here.” One Bay Area resident told the publication that living there was like being a “gerbil on a wheel.”

The Mercury News reports that over 61,000 more people have exited California for another state than the number of people who moved into the state over the duration of 12 months ending on June 30.

In addition, the Bay Area’s middle-class jobs are dwindling at a stunning rate. The Mercury News notes that a state labor report released on Friday reveals that in since 1989, the middle class has diminished by at least 10 percent, having accounted for 56 percent of all households in Silicon Valley that year, but dropping to just 45.7 percent by 2013.

The median rent for a 1-bedroom apartment in San Francisco is $3,490. The prices are creeping up in Southern California, too, where the median monthly rent for a one-bedroom apartment is $3,000 in Santa Monica, $2,930 in Venice, and $2,550 in the rapidly up-and-coming downtown Los Angeles neighborhood.
