It also found that 53 percent of Californians would like to move somewhere else. These findings are interesting because immigration advocates maintain that immigration always promotes cultural and economic enrichment.

The Census Bureau projects that our current population of 325 million will rise to 404 million by 2060 if the current level of immigration continues. Almost all of that growth–a total of 75 million–will be due to immigrants (legal and illegal) and their families.
