Please take your tripe elsewhere. In the U.S. people are free to move
from state to state without restriction. Get over it. Replace
Californian with nigger/jew/whop/chink/irish/injun/wetback/etc. and
see how palatable your xenophobia becomes.
More people move to California in any given year than Oregon and
California is similarly "defenseless" against these migrations. Since
this is largely an economic decision, the solution lies in: (1) make
Oregon a prohibitively expensive place to live; and (2) make Oregon a
prohibitively expensive place to do business. If you succeed in both of
those, I'm sure migrations will dwindle to a trickle. Of course, it
might make Oregon a less desirable place to live for the "natives" as
