California's got a law similar to SB 1070?

According to the Washington Times, California already has a law on the books that looks rather similar to the law just enacted in Arizona.

(b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the following: (1) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanent resident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of immigration laws. The verification process may include, but shall not be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding documentation to indicate his or her legal status.

I guess since California never enforces that, there's no need to boycott CA along with AZ. I'm amazed that so many people are offering opinions and criticizing the law without even reading it. There's enough to criticize there in the law already, why resort to making extra stuff up? It just makes you look horribly ignorant.
