CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS

      Section 108(a) of div. C of Pub. L. 104-208 provided that: "The
    Congress finds as follows:
        "(1) Immigration checkpoints are an important component of the
      national strategy to prevent illegal immigration.
        "(2) Individuals fleeing immigration checkpoints and leading
      law enforcement officials on high speed vehicle chases endanger
      law enforcement officers, innocent bystanders, and the fleeing
      individuals themselves.
        "(3) The pursuit of suspects fleeing immigration checkpoints is
      complicated by overlapping jurisdiction among Federal, State, and
      local law enforcement officers."
