Please explain your answer.


1. "making" in A cannot modify "a law" but rather "immigrants", suggesting that "immigrants make it a crime..."---> awkward

2. "immigrants" with a law passed sounds awkward

3. should include a conjunction to join two indepent clauses

4. "Because of" cannot modify "immigrants"

5. E win the game
