Colombian pop singer Shakira was in Phoenix to join the fight against Arizona’s tough new immigration law. It reminds me a lot of the ‘80s, when the Beastie Boys came to Arizona to fight for our right to party.
I think that if every immigrant looked like Shakira, there would be no immigration laws except the ones that would keep immigrants in the country.
They say there are about 12 million illegal immigrants in this country. But if you ask a native American, that number is more like 300 million.
“As you know, Arizona recently passed the toughest anti-immigration bill in American history. The idea behind this bill is to drive illegal immigrants out of Arizona and back to their homeland of Los Angeles.”
