“Go back to your own country.”

At the same time, a similar number reported someone expressing support to them because of their faith.
The video above, drawn from many sources, illustrates the challenges Muslims face today and their aspirations, as well. You can also read the full Pew report here: “U.S. Muslims Concerned About Their Place in Society, but Continue to Believe in the American Dream.”
