    The same for Florida. I did live in Tampa for 3.5 years and hated it.
    Absolutely.

    Florida is not quite as awful, but pretty damned close.

    As an aside, it appears this thread has completely veered off course into the corn field. We are not even talking about the damn kneeling thing any more.

    Don’t worry, Trump will tweet about it in a few days when he wants cable news to talk about it for another 72 hours.

    Sadly you are probably correct.

    This is an anti-immigration think tank spit-balling tax expenses, with some wild ass guesses thrown in, and does nothing to estimate the economic benefit of immigration (for instance the overwhelming percentage of immigrant laborers California depends on to pick fruit).

    Also there’s just inherent deceptiveness to this kind of statistic because since almost all gov’ts run in the red, you could come up with a much larger estimate to the amount legal citizens “cost” the government, even though they’re the ones driving the economy that funds it.
    You obviously think that these figures are opinions of what someone thinks has been spent. The budget figures are public information and these numbers are derived from each states budget numbers. It not an estimate or an opinion. It’s compiled figures from this organization. Here’s another one you can pour over.

    San Diego is full of Navy retirees. The area south of Los Angles has a lot of Military retirees.

    Yeah I know one retiree who had planned to stay in San Diego, then she married someone who was Active Duty, now they’ve transferred to Biloxi, and the downgrade in quality of life is... significant.
