Answer: It gives law enforcement the ability to enforce laws, that are already laws. If you are an illegal alien and you are lawfully detained, they may ask your immigration status. If you cannot prove you are here legally, you may be deported.

"They want to punish the immigrants when illegal immigration is only a minor misdemeanor"

I have this one on the Kindle, and it translates well. Footnotes, TOC work fine. But most of all, it's the text and the mechanics. This is a classic in the San Francisco community college arena, where English 101 instructors push the text, through anthologies that have included it, or the book itself. He was a bit more frequent on NPR 5 or so years ago, but not as much. As soon as affirmative action comes into play again, they'll call him back. Some say he's too flowery, something characteristic of minority English students. There are two other books that come to mind when I think of pulling this one up: Reality Hunger: A Manifesto and Ilustrado: A Novel. I'll be rereading Hunger of Memory shortly.
