Read ’em and Weep

The numbers we’ve all been waiting for have arrived, and they’re not pretty.

Between 2017 and 2018, the population of the City of El Paso actually decreased by 269 people, according to the latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau.

That means that between 2012 and 2018, El Paso’s population only grew by 1.1%, over six years.

Regardless what you may have heard from other sources.

  1. How does this surprise anyone? El Paso is slowly but surely making sure no one wants to move here while incentivizing anyone who can afford to leave to go quickly.

    Bankruptcy is in El Paso’s future, but they want to keep spending money on things like baseball stadiums for wealthy locals. Next up, a taxpayer funded arena that, ironically, taxpayer’s have to pay attorney’s fees for the city to bypass state law so the arena can begiven to, you guessed it, wealthy locals.
