Shakira On Account Of Poor Latinos Hits Back At Arizona Immigration Law
In account to Arizona’s imposition of Immigration law, the Grammy award winner Colombian singer Shakira had visited Phoenix to head with the chorous of opposition, taking in concern of its adverse effect upon the poor Latinos.
Shakira is very disturbed by the impact of this immigration law that will have an adverse effect on the Latinos, Trevor Nielson, the singer's political and philanthropic adviser stated, "Shakira is deeply concerned about the impact of this law on hard-working Latino families. She is coming to Arizona to try to learn more about how law enforcement is reacting to this and how we can ensure that people in the state of Arizona are not being targeted because of the colour of their skin."
Shakira is involved with groups that are active in Central and South America who has called for a major boycott whereas President Obama has questioned its legality and Linda Ronstadt has called for its repeal.
According to the bill 1070, signed into law by Arizona governor Jan Brewer on Friday stated that if police suspect anyone of being an illegal immigrant then it will direct officers to interrogate on their immigration status and to detain them for committing crime if they are found guilty for not carrying proper papers.
According to Nielson, Shakira cancelled other commitments in her visit to Phoenix and is hoping to speak with Governor Brewer and his staff who stated he was too busy.
With an astonishment Shakira enquired, "Are they really willing to enforce [a] law [when] they know it is going to crush the dream of so many immigrants who would like to have a shot at the American dream, like so many minorities in this country have in the past? We all know how America has been forged by the dreams of those people, and by their passion, and by their contribution to the economy – by working really hard."
