On the House floor today, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) took on the only piece of the Arizona law still intact after the Supreme Court’s ruling earlier this week. The “show me your papers” law allows police officers to check the immigration status of any person they stop for unrelated issues. Opponents of the law say it will encourage racial profiling.
To illustrate that point, Gutierrez played the “Pick Out the Immigrant” game, which included a comparison for the “young C-SPAN viewers”: teen celebrity duo, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Bieber may look like the all-American boy next door, but he’s a Canadian. His girlfriend and Disney channel star was born and raised in Texas.
Before moving on to the next comparison, Gutierrez had this warning for the pop star: “Justin, when you perform in Phoenix, remember to bring your papers.”
