California has beaten Illinois for net out-migration from the state. California has become one state that there are more people trying to get out than moving into it. So while California wants to protect illegal aliens and fight with the Federal government over sanctuary cities contrary to the Constitutional Supremacy Clause, according to a November report from the U.S Census Bureau, the Golden State has had 142,932 residents exit the state. This domestic out-migration has been the second largest outflow in the USA behind only New York and New Jersey. The net out-migration from California jumped up 11% compared to 2015.
