California Dreaming No More: "32% of the nearly 1.8 million Latinos who settled in California in the '80s were living in poverty in 1990, compared with 23% by 2000. Likewise, Latino immigrants from the '70s had a poverty rate of just 17% by 2000. Contrary to stereotypes, about 70% of Latino immigrant children in California graduate from high school, Myers said. And 55% of middle-aged California Latinos who immigrated at least 20 years ago own homes. That number increases to 68% after 30 years of residence."
Increasing numbers are selling California homes and moving to other, lower cost states. And more immigrants are arriving into other states. "census figures confirm the trend: Just 25% of newly arrived U.S. immigrants — about half of whom were Latino — settled in California in the 1990s, compared with nearly 38% the previous decade." 9:39:09 AM
