Soon Native Texans will be unemployed while transplants from California and the North take our jobs. Good thing Perry is taking action to stop this from fruition!

^It's the State of Texas' fault that it hasn't created a qualified workforce that's large enough to prevent that from happening. I was visiting my friend in Sugar Land and in between there and Houston, I saw nothing but a bunch of Texas/Confederate flag waving hicks. These are not folks that are fit to work at Fortune 500 companies(unless it's as a janitor, mechanic, etc). Even many of your college-educated folk are notably inferior than people up in the Northeast. This situation is an example of market forces at work.

While that is a little harsh...often true that people from north come down south and walk circles around their coworkers. The competence levels, professionalism and what is expected for certain jobs is drastically different between regions in my experience.

This isn't saying much for the people of Houston is it? You guys are in the United States correct?
This goes back to which states don't teach students to be able to function everywhere.

Coloroadan's have a lot of trouble with more and more Californian's moving in. Utahn's also don't like all of the non-LDS Californian's moving to Salt Lake City and Park City.

The reason Illinois has become more Democratic is because of the amount of people coming from more liberal New York and Los Angeles since the late 1980's.

Eh...maybe. Have you been to Dockweiler beach on a hot weekend. Last heat wave was out of control. I live in PDR so I drive by there every day. The people were parking all along Vista Del Mar even in no parking zones and up into the residential area and almost every single person I saw was Hispanic. Then one night I saw about 30 getting arrested. The beach was even packed on the weekdays. I thought to myself, Why are people at the beach on weekdays? Then I noticed almost everyone was Hispanic and remembered that they don't work.

Californians should stay in California because it is so beautiful.

What does this have to do with illegal immigration?

Not too many of them in Kansas City, thank goodness.
Sadly, the Ozarks will never be peaceful and pleasant again, thanks to the Californians. You can't throw a rock without hitting someone's house down there. It's downright depressing how overcrowded southern Missouri/northern Arkansas has become.
Overpriced land, McMansions... don't those morons know that you don't have to pay that much in Missouri? Wherever Californians move to, you'd think ocean-front property was around every corner.

Because there are way too many Hispanics in LA and many are illegal immigrants.
