I don't ignore any illegal activity, period.
If I see someone breaking into a home or car, I'd turn them in. If I saw someone shoot someone, I'd turn them in. If I saw someone steal a lawn ornament from a yard or a pack of pens from a store, I'd turn them in.
I didn't write the laws, but I obey them. I don't agree with all of the laws, but I obey them. I don't ignore the ones I don't like, and I consider those who do as aiding and abetting. Depending on what an illegal does/doesn't do, the law agrees with me.
An illegal is breaking several laws just by being here, regardless of whether they are hard workers or criminals. I tend to lump people who ignore that in the same camp as the illegals, because NEITHER has any respect or care for the US ~ and both cause harm to the US.
If any of us snuck into 'mom and pop's' country and opened a business, would the citizens OR the gov't. ignore it or turn us in/punish us?
