Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. ...Companies get cheap labor out of immigrants, and so argue that they are good for the economy, but that doesn't take into account all the welfare, crime, and other problems.
California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation's welfare recipients. ...
55% of immigrant families in the state get some kind of means-tested benefits, compared with just 30% of natives.
The NY Times reports:
Part of the reason is that Sweden’s gang violence, long contained within low-income suburbs, has begun to spill out. In large cities, hospitals report armed confrontations in emergency rooms, and school administrators say threats and weapons have become commonplace. Last week two men from Uppsala, both in their 20s, were arrested on charges of throwing grenades at the home of a bank employee who investigates fraud cases. …Trump is one of the few truth-tellers in public life today.
Last year, Peter Springare, 61, a veteran police officer in Orebro, published a furious Facebook post saying violent crimes he was investigating were committed by immigrants from “Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown country, unknown country, Sweden.” It was shared more than 20,000 times; Mr. Springare has since been investigated twice by state prosecutors, once for inciting racial hatred, though neither resulted in charges.
Even President Trump weighed in on the issue, saying that after taking in “large numbers” of immigrants, Sweden was “having problems like they never thought possible.”
Here is another low California rating:
Stop bragging about your beaches, mountains and culture, Californians. The latest study by U.S. News editors say all those amenities add up to nothing short of the worst "quality of life" in the United States.This is a polite way of saying that California has the best natural environment, but the worst people because it has been ruined by immigration. Nobody likes the immigrants, and they don't even like each other.
The annual Best States ranking was part of a study that scored all 50 states across eight categories: health care, education, economy, opportunity, infrastructure, crime and corrections, fiscal stability, and quality of life.
More weight was given to scores in categories that, based on a survey, "mattered most to people." ...
In this ranking, quality of life is defined by more than just the sunny skies.
"In addition to a healthy environment, a person's quality of life is largely a result of their interactions with those around them," U.S. News writes. "Studies show that when people feel socially supported, they experience greater happiness, as well as physical and mental health."
Meanwhile, the white-haters are rioting in Michigan:
Violent clashes erupted Monday when Richard Spencer, a leading figure in the white nationalist movement, visited Michigan State University to spread his message decrying diversity and taking aim at a society where "everything that is good is anti-white."These riots should prove that some people are unfit to be citizens in a civilized society. If Spencer had trouble convincing anyone, he could just tell his audience to look out the window.
Fights broke out as some protesters hurled bottles, rocks and horse manure to block Spencer's supporters from entering the Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education, a venue at the southern tip of campus where Monday's event was held. Punches were thrown as members of the two groups hurled insults at one another. ...
Law enforcement were out in full force. Helicopters buzzed overhead as more than 100 officers clad in riot gear guarded the entrance to the pavilion and escorted some of Spencer's supporters inside. Dozens of police vehicles lined the street near the venue, and protesters at one point lied down on the street to block an armored vehicle moving down the road.
