Shakira Visits Phoenix Over Immigration Law


The Grammy winner was set to meet with Phoenix’s police chief and mayor to learn more about how the law will be implemented if it goes into effect this summer, said Trevor Neilson, her political and philanthropic adviser…”Shakira is deeply concerned about the impact of this law on hardworking Latino families,” Neilson said. “She is coming to Arizona to try to learn more about how law enforcement is reacting to this new law and how we can ensure that people in the state of Arizona are not being targeted because of the color of their skin.” He said Shakira canceled other commitments to make the visit and also planned to meet with Hispanic families in Phoenix to see how they’d be affected by the law.
