Laws like Arizona's SB1070 require that police determine the immigration status of people who are arrested or detained when there is "reasonable suspicion" that they are not in the country legally. This has opened the door to instances of racial profiling among Hispanics during routine traffic stops, like running a red light.

Univision's Andrea Sambuccetti traveled to Maricopa County, Arizona, and set up a hidden camera to determine how easy it is to become a victim of racial profiling when driving while Hispanic. Check out the video above to see what she discovered.
