Waves of California's economic and medical refugees begin moving to Texas in search of freedom

Economic refugees

(NaturalNews) As the state of California becomes less free, more expensive, and harder to sustain, thousands of residents are voting with their feet for freer, cheaper environments that come with greater opportunities. Texas is the biggest recipient of that outflow.

The Washington Times reports that a recent analysis found that the numbers of California residents fleeing the state are "unprecedented" and that Texas is the greatest destination by far:

About 5 million Californians departed the Golden State between 2004 and 2013, while 3.9 million arrived from other states for a net population loss of roughly 1.1 million...

That amounts to an estimated loss in tax revenue of about $26 billion annually, according to an analysis by the Sacramento Bee.

Using tax return data from the Internal Revenue Service, the analysis found that about 600,000 former California residents made their way to Texas, while about 348,000 Texas residents moved to California. Other top recipients of former California residents included Arizona, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

California's population has nonetheless increased – from 37 million in 2010 to 39 million today – but that is primarily due to an massive influx of foreign-born immigrants, many of whom are in the country illegally and are net recipients of government aid rather than contributors. Overall, the analysis showed, people who leave California earn more than those who enter the state.

Although former Texas Governor Rick Perry made it a point during his final years in office to lure businesses and residents away from California to his state, California politicians have done far more to drive residents from the Golden State.

SB 277 driving people away

In recent months, statist Democrats who dominate the state's legislature, along with Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, passed the most authoritarian mandatory vaccination law in the country, denying residents the right to refuse to vaccinate their children for religious or philosophical reasons.

As Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, noted before the measure passed:

California will be the origin of America's first wave of medical police state refugees fleeing medical tyranny if Gov. Jerry Brown signs SB 277 into law.

Natural News has heard from dozens of readers who tell us they are making preparations to flee the state if SB 277 is signed into law. Mandatory vaccines at gunpoint are "the last straw," according to one mom who wrote Natural News about her concerns. "All these state senators voting for the bill received campaign donations from the drug companies. They sold us out to the corporate interests. There's nothing else we can do but leave..."

Drought migrants

In a separate piece, Adams noted that because of California's ongoing, historic drought, "climate refugees" would begin to stream out of the state for safer, more environmentally stable climes simply because they won't have much choice economically:

The only proof you need that many Californians are still living in a water fairy tale is the fact that California real estate prices haven't yet collapsed. Even as the California Governor has declared a state of emergency -- and emergency water rationing is under way -- there are still people purchasing commercial and residential real estate in precisely the areas that will be hardest hit by that rationing.

What is the value of a home or business that has no functioning connection to a water system? Essentially ZERO.

A historic drought. Crazy public policies such as permitting "gender-confused" students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex. Vaccine violence.

It's no wonder California is losing residents. The people who run the state have lost their minds.
