Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Show up in Congress! [VIDEO]
The floor of the United States House of Representatives is probably the last place you would expect to see Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, but that’s where the two were spotted—or rather, their faces were spotted on Wednesday morning.
Images of Selena and Justin’s faces appeared side by side, as you can see in the video below, used as a prop by Representative Luis Gutierrez from Illinois to discuss the impact of Arizona’s immigration law SB 1070.
“Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez,” began Gutierrez, “these young people have overcome their very different national origins and become apparently a happy couple.”
“I’m sure Justin helped Gomez learn all about American customs and feel more at home in her adopted country. Oh wait a minute, I’m sorry,” he continued, “Because I’m not a trained Arizona official, I somehow got that backwards. Actually, Miss Gomez of Texas has helped Mr. Bieber of Canada learn about his adopted country.” He finished by stating, “”Justin, when you perform in Phoenix, remember to bring your papers.”
What is all the ruckus over? In a controversial decision on Monday, the United States Supreme Court declared some portions of the Arizona law unconstitutional. According to the Washington Post, one of the changes is that an individual is no longer allowed to be arrested “based solely on the suspicion that the person is in this country illegally.”
According to Politico however, it was upheld that an individual could still be stopped and asked to “show their papers,” if they are believed to be in the country illegally.
