Latinos in the Limelight Tweet About Arizona’s Immigration Law
Posted on Apr 26, 2010
George Lopez, Ricky Martin and Eva Longoria worked their Twitter platforms over the weekend to protest the passage of Arizona’s contested and detested new immigration law. For his part, comic Lopez cracked wise about racial profiling, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and Taco Bell, while Martin struck a more somber note. Longoria showed her support by giving both stars’ tweets a boost and adding the input of yet another high-profile person of color: President Obama. —KA
