Ok, so we agree. A third element is that California simply cannot sustain more population growth given our water situation. Any leader of California should push the Federal government on immigration and demand that California's fragile ecosystem be considered together with its water limitations. California should be the first state to tell all, "sorry, no more". Hawaii should follow.

Well, this is a whole other issue, deserving of its own thread. I don't think the US in general can handle more immigration. I've been concerned about that for decades. Aside from the H1B visa issue, there's a multiplicity of legal immigration programs that should be called into question, IMO, not to mention illegal immigration.But I think this complex topic is beyond the scope of this particular thread.

Did you think that the drought would just disappear for good because of one season's rainfall?

"Even in times of drought, California’s natural and human-made arteries run with the nation’s cleanest, most accessible water. So fundamental is the stuff to the state’s identity and to its residents’ daily lives that California law recognizes a human right to “safe, clean, affordable, and accessible water adequate for human consumption, cooking, and sanitary purposes.”

Yet the taps in hundreds of communities produce only toxic brown fluid because years of environmental degradation have contaminated parts of the water table, and because extreme poverty has blocked residents and their leaders from upgrading their water infrastructure..."

Don't forget one other immigration problem, chain migration.
