It MUST be....why else do people move? Paranoia for sure. Americans, by nature, are a pretty 'rooted' people, and just aren't a society prone to move ...unless, of course, they're paranoid...or discover gold in the next state..

We have laws for a reason, all laws. This isn't Burger King. You are either a criminal or "not", taggers are criminals.
Here in Phx the authorities will drop the hammer on taggers----------illegal aliens or not.
