What Cuomo didn't anticipate was that the homes would refuse to take proper precautions on their own, like isolating those patients taken in, not sharing staff with other patients, etc. Honestly, more proof of the need for regulation than anything else.
Anyone nearing retirement moving from Illinois to Tennessee really needs to rethink their planning. I'm not saying staying in Illinois is the best thing for them, but Tennessee will just nail them with taxes - there's no income tax there (none on retirement income in Illinois either, though). But their sales taxes are high and are far broader than those in Illinois.
IF people are a) the sort of people who like to move around, b) the sort of people who can easily find jobs in different locations, and c) relatively affluent... then they may very well decide to move somewhere else with better culture, nicer climate, a livelier arts scene, etc. .... but that does not describe the average person. The average person doesn't like to move. And they don't move unless they have to. And the only reason they would see it as a necessity is if they couldn't feed themselves.
Even if a place is statistically or relatively less safe, people get used to it. They learn how to be safe. It's exceedingly rare that large numbers of people leave for safety, and requires an extreme situation like war.
I have moved blindly to some far away place without first having a job there... but... I'm unusual.
In any case, these states are the ones providing the surplus taxes that fund the states these immigrants are moving to.
What do you think the results would say then?
Also, I should mention that a good reason that protests aren't a reason that people are leaving now is because most people in the cities where the protests are support them. People protesting for justice don't scare me compared to white supremacists who scare me a lot and are out to kill and cause havoc.
Of course bad management of the coronavirus in this country is getting people with money to leave denser cities for less dense parts of the country where they can roam without restriction and fear of catching a deadly virus and is a likely cause for a major uptick in homelessness.
