^I find it unlikely that the majority of illegals have the type of mindset that's required to be engaged in the sort of behavior that you described in your prior post.

No, they do. They act just like citizens of the US and even want government rights......they're not citizens...

Umm don't most Illinoisians live in Chicagoland? That is a big city and metro, right? The 5,000,000 in the city and inner-ring suburbs also the reason that it is a blue state.

I have no problems with any Californians moving into my area, and I can't understand why anyone would.

His problem is more and more Californians keep coming in and pricing them lower down in the valley. Pretty soon his choices are going to be live in Twin Falls a few hours away, or move and find a job elsewhere.
If your brother lives in a rich area, wouldn't he be rich? And if he was rich, how can he "forced" to move down lower in the valley~ with those other pesky poor people!?

I had to laugh at the post of "they open pottery shops" OMG! A pottery shop in our quaint little town! Get a grip and listen to yourself!

The truth is most CA people came from other states and if they want to sell due to overcrowding, crime, traffic, and illegals, that is their perogative.

Not all CA people are tanned and toned, or have conspiracy plans of changing your little town into a liberal oasis. LOL.

We have a neighbor who actually listed her property at 3X the value because she wanted to see if a CA person would buy it. And she lives in a trailer. Idiot. Of course no one touched it.

Here in Oklahoma, we have a number of people who left CA at the right time and sold their house for $500K and with that money were able to relocate comfortably. I don't have a problem with it, because most had roots here to begin with and they are not the liberal, mcrancher boogey men some make them out to be.

Why would anyone have a problem with someone from Cali moving to their area? This is the kind of thing that stops societies from growing.. keeping people out, lol.

I have lots of problems with them. Just yesterday I had to hose-off a Californian that wouldn't stop hugging the tree out front. Also, one keeps toking up in front of me, but refuses to share. And don't get more started on the Californian who brings her dog for a walk everyday by pushing it in a stroller while wearing stilettos.

You can't just stereotype Californians like that. We had a few move into the neighborhood, and one of them kept trying to show everyone his made-for-TV-movie screenplay and asking us to do a pilot, but otherwise he was harmless. And another one kept insisting on getting a fish taco at Taco Bell even though they don't have them, but the manager called the cops and he took off without hurting anyone.

Plus there's a Californian family down the street, and other than how they look and talk, they're just like regular people, they have kids and jobs and just want to live in peace and eat their weird food and stuff. But they're mostly like normal people. So you can't judge a book by its cover. I mean, I wouldn't want one of them dating my daughter, but they're fine if they just keep to themselves.

I think most of the dissenters in this thread have no idea what actually happens to an area when Californians come.
