More Americans Are Flocking To The South

A new New York Times interpretation of census data looks at where Americans living in each state were born. It finds that states in the South, typically are home to many people who were born there, are for the first time seeing significant in-migration.

The Atlantic’s Derek Thompson joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss these new migration trends.
