    That's not a matter of law and enforcement. What you've just described are bigots being bigots.

    You don't think bigotry exists in the law and enforcement.

    We already do. Doesn't stop bigots from using them with racial prejudice.

    I'm certain there are bigots in every sector, in every government, in every population around the world.

    As far as I know, that describes the current federal laws. Don't you agree?

    I stand for treating the refugees humanly.

    I don't know who are illiegals you want to deport but until you can identify them as being separate from the refugees, then I have to assume you mean to deport all illiegals regardless of circumstance.
