Escondido Police Under Fire

I'm a liberal, and I don't actually have a problem with this person being reported to ICE. I would think as a police officer you have to assume that ICE has their act together.

I don't understand whether it's legal to automatically stop people in this type of checkpoint when there's no 'probable cause'. Also, why is there a DUI checkpoint at 9:30 in the morning? Seems like DUI is a euphemism for immigration.

Also the point that these checkpoints are financially beneficial for Escondido police and their partners is very wrong. Incentives seem completely misaligned here.
