Shakira to Arizona: You're Violating Human Rights

by at . Comments

The She Wolf is on the prowl, and she's set her sights on Arizona.

In response to that state's incomprehensible new immigration law - which allows the police to ask for the identification of anyone suspected of being an illegal alien - Shakira is going on the attack.

She's headed to to Arizona today to get involved in the issue, telling Ryan Seacrest on the radio this morning:

"As a Latina, I'm very concerned how this law can impact working Hispanic families. I think that being detained in the street just because of the color of your skin is just wrong, and it's a violation of human and civil rights."

From the American Idol stage to the rights-violating streets of Arizona, Shakira is everywhere this week!

The Colombian-born singer, who is as charitable as celebrities get, will hold a press conference with Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon this week.

Like her truth-telling hips, we hope Shakira gives it to the lawmakers straight. After all, Arizona has actually made it legal for cops to make like Nazis and order: Show me your papers!

"They're really willing to enforce the law even though they know it's going crush the dreams of so many immigrants who would like to have a shot at the American dream like so many minorities have in the past in this country," Shakira said, continuing:

"We all know that 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, and that's what Latinos do in this country, is work tirelessly.

"I wasn't born in this country, and I know what a great country this is. It depends greatly on creating union, not division, and I think this law will create chaos and create division instead of progress and union, and I don't think it's fair."

We'd love to see anyone argue with that.

Im totally agree: many of the terrible human crimes start like this. This is not right, this is a violation to any human, besides race, religion.
Shakira is not only beautiful and talented, but a very smart woman. She speaks many lenguajes, she's committed to help people in different places of the world. Im admire and adore her. Shakira, eres una mujer muy inteligente, bondadosa y comprometida, no solo con tu gente latina, pero el mundo. Te admiro desde siempre, desde "Magia".. Sigue llevando esa magia donde quiera que vallas. Felicidades por tu Bebe!

I agree with Shakira 100 percent. My fiance came here when he was 16 from Mexico. I have been with him almost 7 years now. In those years I have witnessed so much discrimination against him because of the color of his skin. This law is just going to make it worse for Latinos. Besides at one point and time our families where all immigrants.

Everything in this World is relevant. If I would be mexican and illegal, but this is the ONLY chance I have of feeding my family because I couldn't find work in my own country, then this Law is unfair, because I may just happen to be a Decent person who doesn't do any harm to anybody. But if I would be White/Caucasian and it so happens that I have my neighborhood and my life and peace of mind "altered" by some "bad-apples" mexicans, then I would Love this Law. It depends on where you are in the Spectrum. I know a lot of mexicans that are BAD-APPLES and Like to do As Much Harm as Possible, or They are Using and Abusing the System. But I also Know a Lot of White/Caucasians, and Blacks, that are TERRIBLE people Too. Who Everything's to Their Own.

I live in Arizona and frankly I don't give two shits what Shakira has to say. I'm proud of my Governor. I'm sick of people shooting off at the mouth that do not even live here. Move here for a year then tell me there is not a problem with illegals. And BRAVO Paul! I'm sorry you are lumped in with the criminals breaking the law.
