Apparently surging violent crime, massive tax hikes and insolvent public pensions are bad for attracting new residents...who knew? On the other hand, 364 days of sunshine per year, minimal crime, brand new infrastructure and some of the lowest tax rates in the country seems to be, to our complete shock, somewhat appealing to folks looking to relocate.

But that is just a couple of many interesting takeaways to be gleaned from the latest annual "U.S. Migration Report" from North American Moving Services which found that Illinois was the most ditched state in 2017.

And they are taking all their liberal proclivities to the red states they are moving in to. Before you know they'll be voting blue and making those states just as bad as the ones they left.

Which proves their lack of critical thinking skill on WHY they needed to run away to a republican leaning state, only to promote their leftist bull crap all over again.

People have been leaving MI since the 70s, when the auto industry started it's long decline. They used to move from metro Detroit to GR, but there are only so many jobs in West Michigan. And everyone who can is leaving Flint after the lead poisoning incident.


On the up side, Detroit's homicide rate has slipped down to the lowest level since the 67 riots. That is amazing to me. I credit DPD/Chief Craig with it.

Something stinks in that article....

Growth States are calculated by the net gain of one-way U-Haul truck rentals entering a state versus leaving a state during a calendar year. Migration trends data is compiled from more than 1.7 million one-way U-Haul truck rental transactions that occur annually.

Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina and Tennessee rounded out the top five, and North Carolina was seventh, continuing a strong growth movement in the Southeast. California overtook Illinois on the list as the biggest net-loss state.
