California residents fleeing to Nevada and Arizona as high taxes, home prices force them out

According to Census data, 660,000 people have flooded out of California to avoid high taxes and find a cheaper cost of living in neighboring states like Nevada and Arizona.

Fox News reports California had the highest out-migration than any other state in the country, according to 2017 US Census data.

As the California high cost of living continues to squeeze out middle-class homeowners – putting more and more out on the street - along with every-increasing taxes, unemployment and liberal policies that just make it all worse, a growing number of people are moving out and heading to nearby states.

States like Nevada and Arizona are happy with the exodus, saying it leads to more jobs and attracts different companies.
