How do I know whether a group of random people are "skirting the law" or just some tourists that got lost?

Hell, I wouldn't even know how to contact ICE myself. I almost asked "are they in the phone book?" but then I remembered we don't have phone books these days any more than we have rotary dial phones. I do know how to hand someone a sandwich and a bottle of water if they need it, and how to call 911 if emergency aid is required. With most Americans the first action upon encountering someone in distress is "can I help you?" rather than calling ICE. At least for know.

What next, we're going to ask anyone from south of the border to sew a little green leaf on their shirts?
