Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez on Illegal Immigrant Discussion!

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez found themselves at the center of discussions surrounding Arizona’s tough immigration law on Wednesday (27Jun12) after a congressman used them to highlight flaws in the ruling, reports contactmusic.com

The controversial legislation, which was passed in 2010, gives Arizona police power to detain anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant.

Officials discussed the issues surrounding the ruling during a debate at the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, and Congressman Luis Gutierrez used Justin Bieber and girlfriend as an example of how complicated the law is.

Showing a picture of Selena, who was born in Texas but is of Mexican ancestry, next to her Canadian boyfriend, the congressman declared:

“These young people have overcome their very different national origins and become, apparently, a happy couple. I’m sure Justin helped Gomez learn all about American customs and feel more at home in her adopted country.

“Oh wait a minute, I’m sorry, because I’m not a trained Arizona official – I somehow got that backwards. Actually, Miss Gomez of Texas has helped Mr Bieber of Canada learn about his adopted country.

“Justin, when you perform in Phoenix, remember to bring your papers.”

Lady Gaga, Jessica Alba, Kanye West and Eva Longoria are among the other stars who have condemned the new law.

  • Ash

    - Okay, I don’t even understand half of that stupid law. WTF, this has to be a rumor. But they are a cute couple by the way.

    • Ash

      - Nevermind it’s not a rumor. SMH.

  • Hey

    For those of you that don’t understand it; if the new law is passed basically racial profiling will be legal in Arizona. Police will basically be allowed to assume that
    someone is an immigrant based on their appearance. The point trying to be made was that; if the law were to go through someone like Selena could be detained just because they are of Mexican decent, yet since Justin is Caucasian the police would not bother to think that he is not American.

    • Desss

      omg thats sooo sad and mean who ever came up with that law should be shot everyone should be treateed equally no matter what size color shape! shouldn’t matter

      • Hey

        I completely agree.

  • Its pinche Rosalina! :P

    Omfg that must suck for justin! He could have gotten into serious trouble idgaf about selena she can die ina hole and i wont gaf!
    @haha gtfo nobody likes u fàggót!

    • Hey

      You are such a cold hearted, spiteful person. You could go fall off a cliff and I can assure you that Justin wouldn’t care. Does it hurt knowing that he doesn’t know you exist? Does it anger you to know that Justin and Selena are in love? Do you ever get tired of wasting your life hating on somebody who doesn’t deserve it ? After going back and forth with you for a while these are the questions that keep popping into my head. I can’t wait for the day when reality hits you and you realize how immature you’re being.

      • trent

        @hey don’t even bother you are waisting you brain on this biggot. basically the law in arizona is if you are brown mostly latino they can legally check if you are legal or illegal.offcourse the congressman was making an example justin would be fine because he’s white.

    • Its pinche Rosalina! :P

      Actually justin knows i exist cuz i met him at a meet and greet. Dont believe me cuz idgaf. You call a stupid girl using her bf love?! Ha lmao. Yea trent the biggot here is right. Stop wasting ur brains (that is if u have one or even used it!) on me and focus on school kiddo.

      • Hey

        First off what reasons do you have to justify you saying that she’s using him? Second off you should be the last one telling somebody else that they need to go to school, considering that you don’t know the definition of “enlighten” and referred to it as a weird word on a previous article.

  • trent

    guys i saw the video its a senator or congressman named gutierez from puerto rican decent. he was making an example of what police in arizona is doing. by the way selena was born in texas and her mom is italian justin is canadian and basically if your skin is brown the police can check if you are illegal or not basically its called racial profiling.if you haven’t seen the video check you tube and search justin and selena and the guy its making an example of what police is now allow to do. in other words what they are doing its call racisim.

  • kaymon$eys

    lol i find it funny at the end when it talk about him porforming their and that he better bring his papers …idk if i should take wat their saying in a bad way or good way..i dont get it…and justins not ever registred here he cant ever vote if he wanted he said in a interview

    • rez

      its a serious issue ask a teacher or some one who knows about the law but basically the new law in arizona says that it doesn’t matter if you are legal resident if you are latino and most latinos there color is brown they can check for papers even if they are legal in the us. i got an example the nazis in germany did the same to the jews.some people call this law racist or racial. but basically is racial profiling.

      • david b conway

        im going to use my brains better than using in,salt to selena gomez , and to say that about this new law what do they think this is may i ask , this is not the year of racism in the 1960,s or the the 1970,.s or the 1980,s and why are they making this new law now , just when this is the election year 2012 , and the eilzbeth warren might be wining the election this year and she what,s to stop this problem just about the racism of meixcan,s , love david b conway

  • iyana luvs justin bieber

    I cant believe that’s a law

  • love

    This pure racism this go against every thing america stand for i will snap if someone had check me in their computers see if legal because my skin.When ppl do stuff like this they show KKK or other racial society it OK to keep hating ppl because skin . were not olden day anymore cmon guy you can not be serious

  • love

    um their some mistake in the first comment

  • essie j

    justin looks so amazing :) and he will treat any girl like a queen :) i love him p.s selena bitch gomez looks like a dog with him ;) my opinion

    • Hey

      Lmao your comment is not only pathetic but also irrelevant.

  • Belieber!

    Ok, i don’t get anything! Is this normal English? Sorry but i’m not from amarica or england but can someone explain it in easy English?

    • Hey

      Basically they are saying that if law were to go through a police officer could question Selena’s citizenship and could assume that she was an immigrant just because she is of Mexican decent even though she is an American citizen. However it is less likely for a police officer to assume that Justin is not an American citizen because he is white.

  • Tiana

    I live in Arizona and this law annoys the hell outta of me. And they’re not gonna stop Justin cause he’s white they only stop the people who aren’t white in Arizona so he doesn’t need his papers just sayin

  • swagger

    that is dumb. Selena was born in Texas. Arizona get your sh*t together!.

  • a belieber for life
