Arizona is ground zero for immigration-- both from Mexico and from other parts of the US

In Florida, alot of people from the Northeast and Midwest move down in relatively equal numbers. In Georgia (more so in the Atlanta area) alot of people move from Florida, but were originally from other northern states. Where my cousin lives in North Carolina, most of the new residents are from New York (usually NYC area) or New Jersey. My other relatives in Pennsylvania say alot of the new residents there are usually coming from another county nearby (this is in southwestern PA) or in come rare cases, Ohio or West Va.

OK, thanks.

Thanks for the feedback, the census data in particular. The trick, as always, would be to spot the next trend before it picks up...

BTW I don't think this discussion should have been moved here (Politics and Other Controversies > Immigration)

I guess having "(Im)migration" in the title made it sound like it, but I in now way wanted to get into the international and controversial type of migration. I was interested in statistics and trends purely domestically, no controversy and certainly no politics involved.

Cool Logic

I really don't believe that poll. From Missouri on up it is starting to look like Mexico. They say meat packing companies are bringing them. How do you count them? No paper trails. No Soc. Sec. Cards. How you going to count people that don't exist on paper? I just don't think they know exactly how many or people would be a lot more scared. Iowa is over run with them and they are still coming in on the interstate highways. People have reported cars and van loads coming in. Some leave and 10 times that amount comes in.

Are these numbers related to LEGAL immigrants only? I think so.

NYC is getting a large amount of migrant hipsters from all over USA

They are driving the rents up, and forcing the old time NYers to NC, FL, PA

There is a thread in the NYC Forum called "the truth about bushwick gentrification" or something like that. It is a real interesting read.

In all fairness; the winters in NC are much milder than the Wash DC through NYC ones-------try at least least 10 degrees warmer. Plus NC's are shorter in duration
