El Paso on National List of Cities That Residents Are Fleeing
El Paso has made national news once again ranking as the number one city that lost residents to other parts of the country in 2014.
According to a Bloomberg News analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data between July 2013 through July 2014, 20 cities saw a loss of residents including the city of El Paso.
El Paso lost over 8,000 residents in one year followed by New York coming in second, New Haven in third and Honolulu coming in fourth.
The problem analysts say is that young college graduates are leaving El Paso after they graduate in search of better jobs and opportunities to our neighboring metropolitan cities such as Dallas, Austin and Houston. While these residents fled there was also a small influx of foreigners coming into our city from Juarez, Mexico.
