But buried inside the 844-page Senate immigration bill is a section specifically prohibiting the use of race or ethnicity as a factor in “routine or spontaneous law enforcement decisions, such as ordinary traffic stops.”

I stopped you because your tail light was out, not because you're Mexican. Is that an ordinary traffic stop?

We're so screwed.

From my observation, persons who do not speak English as a first language and are suspected of being from Mexico (legally or illegally) are sometimes cut loose (where they might normally be tested for DWI) IF there is suspicion that they may possibly be here illegally. Officers don't want to open that can of worms.
