Shakira Investigating New Arizona Law, Racial Profiling
Linda Frye Burnham / 11:46 AM

Colombian singer Shakira is visiting Phoenix today over concerns that a sweeping new state law cracking down on illegal immigration will lead to racial profiling, says Amanda Lee Myers in the Huffington Post (4/29/10.) 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. The law makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they're illegal immigrants. Shakira visited earthquake-ravaged Haiti earlier this month, expressed her support for Cuban dissident group Ladies in White and has worked as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. Her Barefoot foundation provides nutrition to more than 6,000 children in Colombia, and she is a member of the ALAS foundation that advocates for children across Latin America. Last month, the U.N. labor agency gave the singer a medal for her work to help impoverished children.
