Do you think foreigners now get it about illegal immigrant problems?

California residents are fleeing to the country of Portugal and in many cases bringing problems that have made life more difficult for natives, according to the Los Angeles Times report.

In a story titled "Welcome to Portugal, the new expat haven. Californians, please go home", that the number of Americans living in Portugal has risen by 45% in the past year with many of those Americans moving from California in order to escape high housing costs, pandemic lockdowns, and "Trumpian politics."

The article explains that "resentment of newcomers is growing" in Portugal as California expats have become the "root of questions over gentrification, income disparities and immigration."

Portuguese activists have reportedly taken to the streets to protest the gentrification caused by Americans, many of them Californians, who have moved into the neighborhood and caused skyrocketing rent and evictions.

At least these Californians are going there as legal residents instead of just crossing the border illegally. If they did they would probably wind up in jail. Seems the US is the only country who takes in all illegals with open arms. Frankly, this is the first I've heard of this.
