What an unfortunate example of American airport culture!!!
Opinionated documentary creator Michael Moore got SUPER DUPER pissed when he found out that his friend — the Oscar nominated Palestinan filmmaker Emad Burnat — had been DETAINED by LAX immigration because they did not believe he was actually in town for the Oscars!!
Emad, his wife, and their 8-year-old son were held at LAX for over an hour before FINALLY getting "permission" to stay in the country until the Oscars were over.
Michael Moore tweeted EVERYTHING about the incident (his version of events), which we've collected for your reading convenience!!
Rosario Dawson wanted her voice to be heard at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday because she was speaking up on behalf of undocumented immigrants.
She shouted, "Education not deportation" through a megaphone while holding up a banner reading, "Undocumented."
The actress joined others for the cause following the Voto Latino policy forum "People Powered Politics,” at which she was featured on a panel discussing issues like immigration, economics and education.

But we still wish they could have abolished ALL of these ridiculously RACIST and unjust policies!
The U.S. Supreme Court finally ruled today MOSTLY in favor of the federal government in regards to the controversial SB1070, a policy in Arizona immigration that has caused quite a bit of controversy regarding its support of blatant racial profiling. Although the 5-3 vote was largely a success, the judges upheld the arguably most CONTROVERSIAL provision, which allows police to check the immigration status of individuals while enforcing other laws!
Ch-ch-check out a news report on the semi-victory!
