Family Guy fans are no doubt familiar with Consuela, the Griffin family's dutiful Mexican housekeeper.

And Family Guy creators are clearly familiar with Arizona and its anti-immigrant reputation.

In last night's Valentine's Day episode, watched by millions of people across the country, they took a shot at the state by having U.S. Border Patrol agents take several shots at Consuela.

Video below.

"This is Arizona," one border patrol agent tells another. "We can shoot a Mexican for using a water fountain."

Watch the video.
