    Biggest problem are cost of living,housing,and traffic.The biggest problem is the policies of the Democrat who control the State, it invites and protect illegal alien.The number One criteria of a residence is safety of the family and children.It is expected that crime rate will go up, because when an illegal alien committed a crime he will be set free immediately by the Police, instead of turning in to ICE for deportation. Trump will cut Sanctuary City funding, but Democrat leaders insisted to remain as Sanctuary City. The only way to feed and take care of the illegal alien is to increase property tax, add new taxes, add new fees and increase of licenses billed to the residence. That is one of the reason why the residence are moving out to non Sanctuary City, and plan to live to a low or no tax State.
