Illegal supporter? What the hell does that even mean?
It means you, who'd support illegals over people who don't support illegals.

You seriously believe that when the police put out a bulletin on possible suspects after a robbery, that is similar to the general idea behind racial profiling? So in your mind, the idea behind trying to describe a SPECIFIC INDIVIDUAL doesn't play into it at all? That seems monumentally stupid on your part.
It's the same idea as going after a "5'10" man with dark complexion and brown eyes wearing blue jeans in the vicinity of...." which is frequently the description given on the news when they're after "a specific individual".
No...it definitely is NOT "the same idea".
Yeah, it is. Except in the one, they're profiling black men and in the other, they're profiling hispanics. Especially since most news edits don't give a specific height, they say "medium build" and such.
So, would the AZ bill be okay with you if they only went after "medium build" type people who might have committed the CRIME of ILLEGALLY crossing our borders?

No, but you have a limited intellect.
