Representative Luis Gutierrez of Illinois conducted a pop quiz on "spot the immigrant" this morning on the House floor while discussing the Supreme Court decision to allow the "papers please" provision of SB1070 to stand.
On this C-SPAN video (fast-forward to 15 seconds), Gutierrez blasts the law as unAmerican, and Arizona officials for claiming "with a straight face, no less," that they will be able to enforce this law without engaging in racial profiling.
See the video below.
With large photos of well-known faces -- Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez, New York Knicks' Jeremy Lin and the San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker -- he pokes fun at Arizona officials who clearly must have telepathic powers to be able to develop "reasonable suspicion" that someone isn't a U.S. citizen without judging them by their appearance, the color of their skin or the pronunciation of their last name.
