And, I would think if I decided to go to, say, Ireland illegally...that I would try to keep my head down and stay unnoticed. I wouldn't go to the cops about anything...not even for a restraining order. Yea, it would suck. But, I'm pretty sure I would understand that's the life I would be choosing when I decide to circumvent legal means.
BTW: I'm also not for rounding them up and deporting, either. That's a massive waste of funds and energy to seek them out. But, whenever they're dumb enough to poke their head up and call attention to themselves...I don't get why anyone would be upset that they end up being sent back to where they came from.
For your second point, let's say ICE is just sitting on their ass outside a church used as a hypothermia shelter waiting for people to walk out and then storming them, checking everyone's papers. You mean like that? Or setting up checkpoints at intersections in immigrant neighborhoods and checking everyone as they pass. Is that what you're against?
Personally, I don't know any Mexican Muslims. Or Muslims from anywhere in South America. Or Central America. A couple from the Caribbean.
