    Where is Texas’ growing population coming from?

    The U.S. Census Bureau’s latest population estimates confirmed what many Texans already knew: People are still flocking to the Lone Star State.

    Texas is growing at a rate of 1,000 people per day, and roughly half of these new Texans are migrants, according to State Demographer Lloyd Potter. The other half are newborns, Potter added.

    The state gained 187,545 people from migration between July 2017 and July 2018 — even after accounting for people leaving the state, according to U.S. Census data.

    In 2018, the majority of migrants to Texas — 104,976 people — came from other countries, with the rest arriving from other U.S. states.

    Snip

    Meanwhile, Texas has seen an increase in migration from Asian countries, particularly China and India. Potter said around 45% of international migrants came from Asia in 2016.

    “Over the 2000s, we saw a pretty significant opening of China and kind of increasing number of Indian students coming over to study,” Potter said. “And I think what happens frequently is once they finish studying, they are able to get sponsored by a company for a work visa. … Once they get a green card, then they can start sponsoring their family to come over as well.”

    Jobs are also the main magnet for domestic migration, particularly for highly educated individuals, Potter said. The biggest flow of domestic migrants comes from California, but Potter said many domestic migrants also come from New York, Illinois, Florida and Louisiana.

    I don't think Chinese and Indians could give a rip about guns, and CA, NY and ILL , a lot of Democrats are already there or on their way there or plan to move to Texas. EC votes in Texas is 38. The Democrats can use the EC's votes. Sure the Republicans will be begging to stop the EC. LOL.

    Oh yeah. It's a no-brainer. Texans are gonna vote for unlimited illegal immigration, destruction of the oil & gas industry, and to turn in all the guns.

    That's not voting for a democrat. We do not want illegal immigration and won't make all people turn in guns, assault weapons and large magazines, yes, hopefully there will be non in 20 years except in the military , and clean energy, companies are already at it.

    More and more people are not on health ins since tramp, so that is what we should run on.

    Oh yeah. Thanks for reminding me. You dumb bastards want to kill off our private health insurance plans too. That'll go over real big. Blue State for sure. By the way. There are no Democrats anymore. They've all turned into idiot socialists. Biden is only in the race to make the generational hand-off to the new socialist order in your stupid party. He'll be dead or incapacitated before the election anyway. (Not to say that he isn't already, right? LOL)

    assault weapons?

    Why not go after handguns?

    they cause the majority of the problems.

    the Va Tech shooter, Cho used two pistols during the attacks: a .22-caliber Walther P22 semi-automatic handgun and a 9 mm semi-automatic Glock 19 handgun.[4]

    Killed 32, and wounded an additional 17.

    I believe it's still the worse shooting in US history.

    in nearly 40 years, 'assault rifles' have been used in mass shootings less than 100 times.

    Is it any wonder I laugh at you fools trying to ban them?

    if you idiots were trying to stop drunk driving, you'd try to ban the cars or the booze, not take care of the real problem.
