Does the US code title 18 chapter 13 sec 242 have any bearing on these laws? I have been told that it would be illegal but I am not constitutional lawyer.
If not, why not?

Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any

or to different
punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being
an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed
for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or
imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury
