At last, the issue of the checkpoints has come to light, thanks to an investigation done at UC Berkeley and published in the New York Times and PBS, among others.

La investigación analiza las cifras producidas por distintas agencias de autoridad pública y concluye que el retén es más eficaz para aplicar leyes antimigrantes, como la discriminación que prohibe licensias a conductores indocumentados, que para contrarrestar los conductores ebrios. Además, recalca que las encautaciones de autos resulta con grandes ganancias para municipalidades.
The investigation examines figures from various law enforcement agencies and concludes that the checkpoint is a much more effective tool to enforce anti-immigrant laws such as the discrimination that prohibits licensing of undocumented drivers, than it is to halt drunk drivers. Furthermore, it points out that checkpoints are a cash cow for the municipalities that use them.
