Shakira Speaks Out Against Arizona Immigration Law
Shakira has cleared her calendar and is heading to Phoenix on Thursday, where she plans to meet with the Mayor and Chief of Police to discuss ways to campaign against the controversial immigration law passed in Arizona last week.
The law — signed Friday by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer — makes it a state crime to be in the US illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they’re illegal immigrants. The statue is believed to be the nation’s toughest on immigration, with even President Obama questioning its legality amid fears that the system could lead to racial profiling.
