NOOOOO! Other States Want Immigration Laws Too!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

ap10050241033722.jpg

Even though Arizona's new immigration law doesn't go into effect until July 29th, many other states are planning on following in its footsteps.

The law requires police to check immigration status of anyone they think is in the country illegally with violators facing up to six months in jail, $2,500 in fines, and federal deportation.

Unfortunately, as many as 20 other states such as Florida, Minnesota, Idaho, and Oklahoma are planning on pushing similar measures in 2011.

Supporters of the law say that illegal immigrants are taking jobs, consuming public resources and services, aiding in gang violence and filling prisons.

However, those who oppose the bill say that citizens with the "wrong color" would be unjustly harassed.

This would be terrible!! Immigration laws like these would just fuel more racism and hatred!!

We need to put a stop to these offensive measures and show that we will not stand for this kind of discrimination!

Latino Stars Speak Out Against New Law In AZ Targeting Immigrants!

Filed under: Eva LongoriaPolitikRicky Martin

wenn2729486rm.jpg

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!!"

Here! Here!

Who else is going to speak up?!
