Seems like Rep. Luis Gutierrez is running the show when it comes to immigration.

Gutierrez is such a liar as most pro-illegal ethnocentrics are. How does the law "spur" racial profiling? Racial profiling is prohibited in all of these new laws. Isn't that a smear of all of our LE officers? We have many LE officers that are Hispanics themselves. Besides what does a legal Hispanic have to fear as they would have proper I.D. to be here?

Personally I'd be perturbed if my Representative spent so much time outside of my district to lobby for causes elsewhere but I guess the voters in his very heavily gerrymandered district don't care.

What is a "pro-illegal ethnocentric"?

The de jure prohibition of an act does not necessarily entail the de facto prevention of its occurrence.

"Hispanics" are not a racial group. However, darker-skinned and more "ethnic" looking people are more likely to be perceived as others by Mexican, and more likely to experience negative discrimination. This is evidenced in Blurred Borders for Some but not Others: Racialization, Flexible Ethnicity, Gender, and Third-Generation Mexican American Identity: "[D]arker persons were less likely to identify as white, more likely to be perceived as Mexican, and more likely to experience stereotyping and discrimination."

Many people of various ethnicities object to arbitrary police contact, detainment, questioning, and permanent cataloging in field interrogation (FI) reports, which are now often computerized.

Somewhat of a moot point don't you think & way off
topic.

Gutierrez doesn't think he's POTUS, he thinks he's
God.
