In the 90s, after the Cold War ended, Virginia had AOL, telecom, and a decent tech industry. But since 2010, when the rest of the country recovered strongly, it got hit with defense cuts and sequestration, and had nothing to counter that with.

My only thought is that there might be some outlying US possessions that are being counted in the domestic population numbers... i.e. Guam, Saipan, USVI, etc. I have no idea if they are counted as international migrants or domestic. I'm not sure why they'd be considered international.
