    The U.K. government is looking to reduce migration, which could impact international students' ability to study in Britain. LONDON — Foreign students wanting to study in Britain may be turned away unless they have secured a place at a "top university," according to a report by The Times newspaper. Ministers were allegedly discussing how to reduce flows to the U.K. after record levels of net migration were reported on Thursday.  According to the report, there will also be restrictions on how many family members the students are able to bring into the country with them. The rules will also only apply to foreign students who aren't already living in the U.K. Roughly 1.1 million people arrived in the U.K. in the year to June, with around 560,000 emigrating in the same period, leaving net migration at a record 504,000 people, according to the Office for National Statistics on Thursday. The reported plans to deter foreign students from studying in Britain seem to go against the government's International Growth Strategy from 2019, which was designed to increase the number of international...
    by Bethany Blankley   Florida ranks first in the U.S. for attracting and developing a skilled workforce, according to Lightcast’s seventh-annual Talent Attraction Scorecard. Florida ranked first overall in education attainment, jobs, skilled jobs, migration in 2020, competitive effect, and skilled job openings. Gov. Ron DeSantis says Florida ranking first in the U.S. confirms his administration’s commitment to an open economy, and its emphasis on training and developing workers with the technical skills and credentials. “By keeping Florida free and open, we have created a positive economic environment and invested in our state’s workforce and communities,” he said, while also leading the U.S. “in net migration and talent attraction.” He said while “other states continue to struggle at the hands of poor leadership, people and businesses are flocking to Florida.” Lightcast says it created the report to help businesses find employees “with the talent and skills they need” and “to help communities understand how they were doing at attracting and developing talent to help meet this need.” The report measures seven growth areas over the most recent five-year period analyzed,...
    LIZ Truss will vow to slash net migration - but has no plans to bring back a cap on numbers. Allies of the PM and Home Secretary said the pair were in agreement that the numbers of people coming to Britain were still too high. 1Liz Truss vows to slash net migration - but has no plans to bring back a cap on numbersCredit: EPA Net migration is currently running at around 230,000 a year. David Cameron set a target to get it down to the tens of thousands, but this was downgraded by Boris Johnson. It comes after backbench Tories hit out at reports the PM wants to increase migration numbers in a major shake up. Home Secretary Suella Braverman and other Cabinet ministers only want to loosen the rules if it helps boost GDP.

    Two Bay Area counties were among the 10 in the nation that lost the greatest percentage of their population in the first 15 months of the pandemic, according to new numbers released by the U.S. Census Bureau. San Francisco saw a drop of 6.7% and San Mateo 3.5% from April 2020 to July 2021. That put them at No. 2 and No. 5 on the list, which was led by New York County (down 6.9%). Twenty-five of California’s 58 counties saw population decreases in that 15-month period. The state’s greatest increase was San Benito County, up 3.8%. Overall, California saw a 0.8% drop, a loss of just more than 300,000 residents. The “net migration” loss of 415,522 residents to other states or countries was offset by a gain of 115,215 in “natural change” — births minus deaths. The chart below shows the net migration and natural change numbers for the nine Bay Area counties.
                 Tennessee ranked third in the nation for growth in moves to the state in the year 2021 according to a press release by the moving company U-Haul. The ranking is based on the company’s yearly U-Haul Growth Index which analyzed the net gain of one-way entry to states for the year. The Tennessee Star previously reported the Volunteer State posted the largest net gain of U-Haul trucks crossing its borders in 2020. Texas took the number one spot as the leading growth state of 2021, narrowly beating Florida for top honors, according to transactional data compiled for the annual U-Haul Growth Index. Tennessee ranked third, South Carolina fourth and Arizona fifth among the top growth states. Indiana, Colorado, Maine, Idaho and New Mexico rounded out the top 10 growth states of 2021. “We see a lot of growth coming from the East and West Coast,” said Matt Merrill, U-Haul area district vice president of the Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex and West Texas. “A lot of people are moving here from California (and) New York. We also see a lot of...
                 While the nation recorded a historically low population growth rate from 2020 to 2021, the state of Florida had the second highest population increase in the U.S. behind Texas, according to a report on Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau (USCB). Following Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ efforts during the pandemic to keep Florida relatively open compared to most other states, from July 1st, 2020, to July 1st, 2021, the census report showed that the state’s population grew by 211,196, to a total population of 21,781,128. While Texas’ had the largest amount of population growth during the same time-frame with 310,288 new residents, Florida had the largest increase of net domestic and international migration, which measures the amount of people coming in and out of the state. However, in addition to Florida being the top state in net domestic and international migration, it also had the largest “natural decrease” – meaning it was the state with the largest percentage of deaths to births. The USCB report states that the natural decrease in Florida – and other states with high...
    U.S. population growth dipped to its lowest rate since the nation’s founding during the first year of the pandemic as the coronavirus curtailed immigration, delayed pregnancies and killed hundreds of thousands of U.S. residents, according to figures released Tuesday. The United States grew by only 0.1%, with only an additional 392,665 added to the U.S. population, from July 2020 to July 2021, according to population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau. The U.S. has been experiencing slow population growth for years but the pandemic exacerbated that trend. This past year was the first time since 1937 that the nation’s population grew by less than 1 million people. “Population growth has been slowing for years because of lower birth rates and decreasing net international migration, all while mortality rates are rising due to the aging of the nation’s population,” said Kristie Wilder, a Census Bureau demographer. “Now, with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this combination has resulted in an historically slow pace of growth.” The population estimates are derived from calculating the number of births, deaths and migration in...
    A report from the Migration Observatory at the University of Oxford has estimated that the Office for National Statistics (ONS) undercounted net EU migration to the United Kingdom by an average of 93,000 per year between 2012 and 2020. The study estimated that, in total, net migration to Britain was 15 per cent higher than previous estimates from the ONS, with many more people entering the country than initially believed. The discrepancy between the former figures and the reality came as a result of the structural problems inherent in the previous immigration counting system — the International Passenger Survey — which was in effect until recently. Under the old system, the government would compile an estimate of immigration based on a voluntary clipboard survey of 250,000 arrivals per year at some points of entry to the country, rather than actually counting the number of people coming in and out of the country. Updated methods still refrain from doing an actual tally but include supposedly more reliable means of estimating numbers, such as tracking taxes and benefits. Under the new counting system, the...
    Mass immigration into the United Kingdom increased by tens of thousands in the year to mid-2020, according to estimates from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). “Net migration, largely driven by non-EU arrivals but also some British citizens coming home before the pandemic fully hit the UK, was higher than the historical average up to March 2020,” the state agency explained in a blog post — although it cautioned that its figures are “highly provisional and uncertain” due to already inadequate data collection methods being disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. The ONS said that there appeared to be “a notable change due to the impact of travel restrictions” from March, with net migration over April, May, and June — the endpoint for the estimates — thought to be around -50,000. “Taking this data into account, our preliminary analysis suggests the UK population grew to 67.1 million by mid-2020 – a 0.5 per cent annual increase from mid-2019,” the explainer noted. Britain’s governing Conservative party claimed it would reduce net immigration “from the hundreds of thousands to the tens of thousands” ahead of...
    When people vote – with a moving van or a U-Haul truck – they vote for lower taxes and smaller government. That’s the conclusion from comparing a new report on freedom at the state level with the most recent U.S. Census Bureau data.    Over the course of a year a net of 788,381 people moved to Florida, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, the "freest" five states in America, according to the Fraser Institute’s annual Economic Freedom in North America index.   The annual report, published by Canada’s Fraser Institute, ranks the states and provinces of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico using objective measures of government spending, tax rates and labor market freedom. The least-free U.S. state is New York. West Virginia, Alaska, California and Vermont round out the bottom five.   RNC CHAIR McDANIEL: WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH – REPUBLICANS' LONG HISTORY OF CHAMPIONING WOMEN'S RIGHTS, CAUSES According to Census Bureau state-to-state migration estimates through mid-2018, the freest five states attracted a net of 270,608 people from other states while the bottom five saw a net outbound loss of 398,067 residents through domestic migration. New York lost the most, as 458,014 left the state and 254,447 moved in for a net loss of 203,567. California’s net loss was 190,122...
    Fewer Americans are moving than at any point in more than 70 years, but those who are moving are abandoning major urban centers at the fastest pace in two decades as they relocate to the suburbs. A new report from the U.S. Census Bureau found about 29.8 million people, or about 9.3 percent of the nation’s population, moved homes in 2019. That is the lowest figure the Bureau recorded since it began collecting moving data in 1948. Those who did move tended to land in suburban areas, at the expense of both the major cities at the heart of those suburbs and the rural areas that surround them. An estimated 2.6 million Americans moved into major cities in 2019, compared with almost 5.1 million who left, a net outward migration flow of 2.5 million people. Cities attracted almost half a million migrants from abroad, but that still means major American cities lost a net of 2 million people in the last year. A net of almost 3 million people, including close to 400,000 international immigrants, moved to the suburbs. Close...
