oppposition to the immigration bill = populism

Since the Iraq war in 2003, I haven't seen an issue that gets my fellow students as excited and involved as the new immigration bill.
While the mainstream press has been covering Bush's toting of the bill and student protests of the bill, there has been little mention of the reason for the intense opposition to the bill: it makes being an illegal immigrant a felony, and helping immigrants a misdemeanor.
Besides being entirely unenforceable, the bill will create a culture for immigrants where they can be exploited by their employers, who can turn them in at any time. Likewise, I find the bill's criminalization of helping immigrants, especially coming from a president who claims to be a compassionate conservative, hypocritical.
Love your neighbors, but only if they've got a green card? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, but only if they're legal?
