Drlee pretends this is an issue of racism and not an issue of controlled vs. open borders, when the actual actions of liberal politicians in positions of power has lately been to promote "sanctuary" for convicted criminals which is just a euphemism for open borders.
Controlling the border is easier than controlling under the table hiring and payments.
Once supply of foreign labor is under control it might be fair to discuss racism, such as if someone does something that could be considered racist (wanting to control a nation's border not necessarily being racist).

Wealth clouds judgement. It also gives false entitlement. I have never known anyone pick and choose what is acceptable biblical dogma or not than Hindsite. For someone who claims the bible speaks the truth and is indeed factual evidence, he sure doesn't adhere to any of the bible's messages.

California has the third highest median home value in the country behind DC, and Hawaii.
The state rakes in enormous amounts of cash from California landowners.
Even at an effective rate of 1%, they pay more property tax than most people in the US.
I pay 1.5%, because my home is brand spanking new.
That has almost nothing to do with it.
You have no such problems in Montana, Arizona, Kentucky, or North Carolina who are taxed at very similar rates.
States like New Jersey and Illinois would be absolute paradise if high property taxes were some sort of panacea; they are not.

However, remove the cancer that is the West Coast from the United States, and things will be better. Get rid of California, Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii and there will never be a Democratic Congress or President again. FREEDOM WILL REIGN all over a revitalized America, now able to make the Kansas miracle, which the GOP has pushed to go national, will march on without any limp wristed coastal elite being able to stop it.
We will be so sorry. But we should learn from our errors. Kick us out, or admit that we’re the only grownups in the room willing to pay for your constant failures and you need us to discipline you and your childish temper tantrums by paying yet another one of your bills...

One of the best economies in the world is a 3rd world renter state because you can find some pictures of tents. Lame.
Look at this slum in Georgia, USA! What a third world shit-hole state!

Even in expensive California, affordability is still possible.

If the price of a home is ten times that of Georgia then that suggests the demand is higher in California. Demand is usually linked to desirability. Desirability could be created by many factors but it is usually down to job opportunity or quality of life. If immigrants were making California so bad to live in people should move states, take their skills with them or invest in jobs somewhere else. But they want to remain in California. Why? Maybe it is because it isn't that bad over there.
So where is the shit-hole? California or Georgia?
B0ycey wrote:If rents are so damn expensive, how are illegal immigrants on very low wages affording to live there? I suspect the rents are expensive in direable districts and low in others. So supply and demand. And it seems perhaps people are too precious to live in multicultural areas and rather complain that gated districts are too expensive for them. But you can't hardly blame migrants for this. You can only blame the snowflakes who believe they are above poverty areas.
Nonetheless your worry of over inflated rents and houseprices will equal out in the very near future if for every one person relocating to California three leave as you suggest. It is only a matter of time.
Also, and I cannot stress this enough, if people can't afford to live in California, why are they not moving to say Georgia? Perhaps California has more to offer in terms of jobs and quality of life. The average American isn't a complete moron. They aren't going to bankrupt themselves if the grass is greener in another state with their cheap rents and fantastic job opportunities.
Despite pristine beaches, the glitz and glam of Hollywood and being one of the technological capitols of the world Californians reportedly have one of the lowest qualities of life, according to U.S. News and World Report's annual "Best States" rankings.
The study ranks states on a variety of metrics, including quality of life, opportunities for residents, education, healthcare, economy, infrastructure, crime and corrections, and fiscal stability.
Metrics are weighted based on what more than 30,000 participants indicated as the most important aspects of livelihood. Healthcare and education were the heaviest scores, followed by economy, opportunity, and infrastructure.
Overall, the Golden State came in at 32, though scored last in quality of life and near last in opportunity and fiscal stability.
