After President Trump was elected in 2016, prominent liberals in Hollywood and on social media threatened to leave the country.
Under Biden, inflation has skyrocketed to the point where many middle-class Americans cannot afford everyday necessities like gas and food.
Violent crime has skyrocketed across the country, particularly in liberal cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles who saw record-high homicide rates in 2021.
Instead of fleeing the country under Trump, many liberals are leaving under the current administration as states like California have become virtually unlivable under Biden and Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom.
The Daily Mail Reports–
“Thousands of Californians are fleeing to Mexico amid the soaring cost of living in the golden state. Americans taking advantage of work from home are reaping the benefits of US salaries, while living off Mexico’s cheaper lifestyle.
Others are living in Mexico, while commuting to work in the US. But critics have argued that the influx of Americans in cities south of the border has begun to price out local Mexicans.
Many feel forced out by rocketing inflation in the golden state that has gas, grocery, and living costs soaring under Governor Gavin Newsom.
‘I would say at least half are coming down from California,’ Darrell Graham of Baja123 Real Estate Group told CNBC while speaking about the real estate trends he has seen.
‘Suddenly the cost of taxes, the crime rates, the politics, all the things that people are unhappy with in California are are coming down to Mexico.”
California saw a decline in its population for the second year in a row in 2021. Significantly more people left the state than moved to it, following a decades-long trend. In 2021 alone, 280,000 more people left California than moved in.
