Federal officials don’t make “traffic stops”. They screen who gets on an airplane.
Really? ever been through a border checkpoint near Mexico? I believe La Migre are Feds.
It's a misleading red herring thrown in by some dishonest drafters.
They want people to think this is about the supposed "driving while black" police stops.
Legally, you can pretty much ignore the "such as..." phrase. It doesn't limit the preceding language.
The important language is that ICE and the Border Patrol would not be allowed to use ethnicity in routine law enforcement decisions.
The problem is that they need to be able to do that to do their job.
To take a hypothetical, if our illegal problem was 90% Chinese people and Chinese people were 5% of the population, then they should focus their resources to a large extent on Chinese people. But under this standard, they should focus only 5% of their effort on Chinese people.
It's a way by the Left to make it legally impossible to control the Mexican border. The Republicans agreeing to this have been snookered again.
