That has nothing to do with "the coasts" but small town v. big city. I came from the east coast and live in Texas. My hometown in Upstate NY (plus I also lived in New England) was very insular where as big Texas cities are very welcoming of immigrants.
Houston owes its existence to three Upstate New Yorkers: Augustus Chapman Allen, John Kirby Allen and Willis Haviland Carrier
