More foreign migrants make their way to Texas

by Texas Tribune  |  published on October 15, 2015


Thousands of migrants born in other countries continue streaming into Texas, but lately more of them have lived somewhere else in the country first, according to a new analysis.

The fluctuations in migration come as the share of people from Latin America coming to Texas is falling and Asian migration to the Lone Star State has increased dramatically. The changing patterns captured in a report by the Office of the State Demographer, which provides periodic snapshots of the state’s growth are lending the state a more international flair, especially its metropolitan areas. Texas’ population is more international today than at any time since it became a state in 1845, according to the demographer’s report.

In 2013, almost 39 percent of the foreign-born people who moved to Texas had lived somewhere else in the United States first, mostly California and Florida, the study shows. A decade ago about 34 percent came here from other states. Meanwhile, the share of immigrants moving straight to Texas from another country dropped from 66.3 percent of newcomers in 2005 to 61.5 percent in 2013.

    They better listen to the folks of Texas in that they had not stay here. Life expectancy here is very short.

  • Judge Ely

    Texas is awake. I am sure they will be leaving for California, NY, or for some other state.

  • CharlieSeattle

    The correct term is……………..illegal aliens NOT illegal immigrants.

          • The Redhawk

            WEll May be there can be a section of the border where Invafers can be made to approach in single groups for Target practice… My way would get Immediate Results throughout Central America and be very Cost effective in the Short run…:0)

          • Patricia

            Sad but true!

          • The Redhawk

            Copy That!!!

  • Graywolf12

    All a part of plan to make Texas blue. If Texas ever becomes democrat there will never be another Republican president.

  • carpkiller

    • Graywolf12

      Since when can a Governor stop people from other states moving into their state?

      • carpkiller

        They are not just moving in there. The dickhead in the whitehouse is just saying I am sending them. He has no authority to send those fuckers to any state. —– Original Message —–

        I think he is referring to “illegals”?

  • KDC

    Did you see the picture of all these illegal immigrants? This regime is breaking the backs of Americans. We can NOT sustain this much longer. They need to leave.

  • bluebonnet

    stand up TEXAS and do not allow this to happen to TEXAS
    TED CRUZ 2016, he listens

    • obama

      Makes sense for Texans. In general, Asians tend to be highly educated. So of course they will tend to vote Democratic.

      Since Texas doesn’t want to be viewed as a mecca of intelligence, it makes sense that they want to kick out the educated in favor of the good ‘ol boys.

      • Elizabeth

        You must be a Democrat, because you sound ignorant. The Republican Party has a greater share of educated, white collar citizens. After all, Democrats are blue collar union workers and aliens.

        • obama

          Believe what you want. But what I stated is the truth. Republicans never let the truth get in the way of what they believe.

          • robmanwiller

            What’s the ‘truth’ about Obama and when did he ever tell the truth? Case closed, lib-tard mouth-piece-of-shit.

          • bluebonnet

            gads, you have to be a troll?
            TED CRUZ 2016, he listens

      • Graywolf12

        You sure don’t reek of intelligence.

        • obama

          You need some intelligence to recognize intelligence. Case proven.

          • The Redhawk

            BUT you cannot prove “CASE” so what can you be called???

      • bluebonnet

        you area so clever?

      • robert sanders

        you must be an educated DickHead

        • The Redhawk

          NOT EDUCATED….INBRED DICK HEAD!

          • robert sanders

            your right. inbread

  • teaman

    Wakeup Texas, their sole purpose is to change the voting dynamic of your state in favor of the dummycratics. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to learn, that they are being paid to relocate. Perhaps by George Sore-ass.

    • KDC

      Exactly….Under our Constitution all persons residing in a state are counted for the Electoral College purposes. Legal or not. Voters or not….all counted.

      • SDofAZ

        Absolutely true and the popular vote means nothing as we have all seen for many elections. The Electoral vote is population weighted including everyone in the state per the census. The dems know exactly what that means and BO and his minions opened that border with utmost intent to tip that scale. Truly traitors all.

      • The Redhawk

        Oh heck MOON BAT Brown ( CA) gives legal driving licenses to all illegals so they can REGISTER to vote…

        • Miriam Farnum

          They are AUTOMATICALLY registered to vote when they get new or renewed license. Ca. allows illegals to get lic. then the wi be registered to vote! Brown passed this law this past week.

          • The Redhawk

            So how soon before the North East , Illinois, Maryland and the States in need of being DEFUNDED will do the same???

          • Patricia

            Sick, sick, sick!!!

        • Patricia

          Same in Colorado with our Gov. Hickenlooper!
          What a name, Hickenlooper, his nick name is Chickenlooper, because we had “The Chuck-E Cheese” murderer, (Nathan Dunlap, he Killed four and seriously injured a fifth) was up for execution, and he, for now, he put a stay on him. He wants to either pardon the sick bas#ard, or give him life in prison.

          The killer described killing as “Better than sex”. SICK!!!

          He also made us a “sanctuary city” and allowed for Illegals to get CO Drivers Licencses.

          I can’t believe what is making the Democrat Party so full of hatred for our beautiful country, America!

          We definitly need to turn this around and fast of we will be no more!!

          Choose Cruz! tedcruz.org It’s all there 😉

          • The Redhawk

            I’ll take CRUZ over T-rump the loud MOUTH WHINER..and I’ll vote for

            A-nyone
            B ut
            C linton ( ABC)
            However the Best of the THreesome with a Record of GETTING THINGS DONE THE RIGHT WAY is KASICH

          • Patricia

            Don’t know about Kasich, my understanding is that he went for the Federal money to expand Medicaid big time! This will cost Ohio in the near future, after his term is up .

          • The Redhawk

            OHIO was 8 BILLIONS in the RED and had HIGH taxes and 9’3 Unemployment with TOO many Uninsured folks.when JOHN was elected …He took the “FREE” money , The State is in the Black and More Citizen have HC including in mental and drug rehab facilities, unemployment below Fed avg,,,and JOBS increased Dramatically…and as a REPUB he got 62% of CLEVELAND ETHNIC VOTES!!!
            and the others??????????????????????

          • Patricia

            Yes, however, at what cost to the tax payers.
            It will be felt in the near future.
            It’s not free, it needs to be paid back and the cost will go up to the states when the 50-50 split of the money stops!
            Then what?
            I know we did it in Colorado, we are also a “Sanctuary City” and our state government is scrambling trying everything to raise out taxes.
            We have what is called The Taxpayers Bill Of Rights (TABOR) and the state is dying to get rid of it. It only allows taxes to go up with the rise of inflation / cost of living. Instead, sales taxs, income taxs, property taxes any tax they can find (that doesn’t fall under TABOR) is going through the roof! They are fixing our roads, but adding high tolls. Our electric, phone, cable bills have tripled.
            I believe in the Constitution! It does not have any Articles or Provisions for the state / fed government to be involved in paying for health insurance. One can have health insurance and not be able to get Health Care. My deductables have gone up 400%!!! Our version of the ACH in Colorado is so expensive, most new people to having coverage are on Medicaid. We the tax payers are paying for it with our policies.
            I hate this law, it will break the backs of the states that have chosen to accept it and the so called “middle class”. I stand firm on this because this is how it was set up = REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH.

        • champion2211

          Not in Texas. If they aren’t American Citizens then no vote.
