Seth Myers asked that question on SNL’s Weekend Update, in the wake of the New Immigration law signed by AZ Governor Jan Brewer, which requires police officers to verify a person’s immigration status who, in the course of a law-enforcement action, has come under a “reasonable suspicion” that he is an illegal alien.
Seth’s remark is considered by some to be one of the dumbest things said about the new immigration law…as was this incredible statement made by the President:
“You can imagine, if you are a Hispanic American in Arizona…suddenly, if you don’t have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to be harassed.”
Guess what? When Obama visits a factory in NJ to talk about the economy – if you want a chance to talk to him….you’re going to “be harassed”:
The team will identify a few employees to talk with the president, check their backgrounds for immigration status and child support delinquencies, brief the company execs on protocol, arrange for top-notch sound equipment and lighting, risers for the TV cameras to see over any crowd and importantly arrange the proper backdrop for the president’s remarks. They even carry cans of women’s hair spray, which dull the glaring sheen on those large banners often hanging over the stage.
