The imperial coach was armored with iron and Napoleon III did not had a scratch during the 1858 attack, but it used it to have a law voted against republicans, and banned or deported several hundreds of people who had been granted an amnesty 5 years before and had nothing to do with the attack. Makes me think at your ban on Muslims targeting refugees.
