Artists Join Arizona Immigration Law Protests

Artists Join Arizona Immigration Law Protests

Artists, most of the foreign roots, have joined the mounting protests against the implemented law in Arizona where being an illegal alien means facing a criminal offense.

Among those who already spoke up are Colombian singer Shakira and Puerto Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin. Some Canadian indie singers have joined the foray too.

Shakira, who was in Arizona, declared on Ryan Seacrest‘s morning radio show that “In my opinion, it dulls human and civil rights of citizens and non-citizens.” She also said that the law is inhuman.

While on the stage to introduce a fellow Latin act during the Billboard Latin Music Awards, Martin said in Spanish, “This is not in the script… this law makes no sense. 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.”
