Amnesty Bill Also Outlaws Profiling Illegal Aliens by Ethnicity, Race or Fence Climbing

The Amnesty Bill is clear proof that there are worse things than Obamacare. It’s packed so full of legislative waste and political junk that it just might blow up.

A truckload of young Hispanic men is spotted by a U.S. Border Patrol agent rumbling down a dusty road a mile north of the Mexican border toward El Paso, Texas.

How should the agent respond?

Under the immigration-reform bill currently under consideration by Congress, Border Patrol agents or any other law-enforcement officer who stops such a vehicle to demand identification might be found in violation of the law.

The legislation bars all federal law-enforcement officers, including border agents, from using race or ethnicity “to any degree” while making routine or spontaneous law-enforcement decisions, a WND review of the legislation has found.

The bill further calls for the Homeland Security Department to collect data on immigration enforcement activities to determine the existence of racial profiling.

The data would be utilized to issue future guidelines to officers regarding the use of race or ethnicity during routine enforcement.

Enforcement is the punch line here, because that is going to become a thing of the past. But this will be just one more way to intimidate border patrol agents into not enforcing the law.

    The left is fine with racial profiling for scholarships, hiring, and the awardi of government contracts.

  • pupsncats

    When the government talks about racial and ethnic profiling, what they mean is no non-white is ever going to be required to follow all laws which are established for whites only.

    The Beltway Elite is “electing a new people” by high immigration and lack of immigratiion and border enforcement.

    This is a LOT shorter than 1500 pages
    and it is easy to understand too !

    1) the senate bill was written by LA RAZA. so
    it deserves to be dead on arrival.
    2) NO PATH to citizenship – NO AMNESTY
    would FDR or TRUMAN or Eisenhower or Kennedy have the
    nerve to cancel out our vote – for what ?
    By who – an illegal criminal ?
    4) NO CHAIN MIGRATION – use a calculator to see where that leads.
    5) NO TAX BREAKS FOR OUTSOURCING or moving factories out.
    6) LOWER legal immigration levels.

    Not to mention the synergistic destruction from having both.

    Mexican greasers must not be allowed into the USA. They only bring trouble.

    How in the hell can these border patrol agents do their job if they can’t stop people coming from our borders “ethnically”? This is insane! Who else would be coming across the border? 95% would be Mexicans and yet they can’t stop Mexican looking people because it’s a violation of some sort of law? Honestly? This is so nuts you have to give “nuts” a new definition!
