Ricky Martin appeared at the Billboard Latin Music Awards yesterday and took the opportunity to voice his opinion about the recent anti-immigration law that passed in Arizona.
"This is not in the script," he said. "You are not alone. We are with you. Put a stop to discrimination. Put a stop to hate. Put a stop to racism… Long live love, long live peace."
He received a standing ovation and we couldn't agree more!

After the passing of the outrageous immigration law in Arizona, Shakira has gone to help the cause to revoke the mandates.
The Columbian singer will meet with the mayor of Phoenix Phil Gordon on Thursday along with other critics and families who might be affected by these new policies.
Not only has this measure been called unconstitutional but it's said to lead to ethnic profiling.
Go get 'em, Shak!

And rightfully so!
A new law passed in Arizona that allows the police to question members of the public they suspect could be living in the United States illegally and it also requires legal immigrants to carry their registration documents at all times!
Ricky Martin is one of the Latino stars voicing his opinion on his Twitter! He Tweeted:
"Equality is understanding that we all come from the same place. Racial profiling should never be tolerated, in the U.S. or anywhere in the world. We're moving backwards. Scary."
Eva Longoria Parker echoed his sentiments by re-Tweeting the message. And George Lopez added:
"Arizona. George Lopez is coming… Oops… I just got pulled over… apparently I fit the profile… Gacho!!"
Who else is going to speak up?!
