    LOS ANGELES — With a house purchase near Denver in the works, the 38-year-old engineering contractor plans to move his family 1,200 miles away from his home state's lemon groves, sunshine and beaches. For him, years of rising taxes, dead-end schools, unchecked illegal immigration and clogged traffic have robbed the Golden State of its allure.

    Is there something left of the California dream?

    "If you are a Hollywood actor," Reilly says, "but not for us."

    I left nearly 8 years ago. For the same reasons.

    England is losing massive numbers of it's citizens too. Too many muslims have been let in and are taking over and are driving out the English citizens.

    Our city has had a massive influx of immigrants but there's no where for us to go. When my husband was unemployed for 3 years, we looked into emigrating, no other country would have us, either because we were too old, not educated enough, or had two special needs kids.

    Where do Americans go when the immigrants have wrecked our country?

    The search for sunshine is probably a bigger reason for Brits to leave the homeland rather than too many muslims, though they do piss me off.

    I live in California. If you can move, you should move.

    You can fix it. Just do what our county and now our state has done. Spend the money to get your police ICE trained. Then, on every police stop of an individual, have their immigration status checked. Detain the ones that are illegal until ICE can deport them.

    It has an Oh so chilling effect on the illegal population. Meaning they scatter like roaches when the lights are turned on. We now have our county back. :clap2:

    We let illegals appeal against deportation until they die in their free housing of obesity, due to stuffing themselves full of food and drink bought by the money the state hands out to them for free.:evil:
