Immigrants Of The Week: Shakira, K.R. Sridhar, and David Feherty

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: SHAKIRA - SINGER

 
Colombian-born Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, better known simply as superstar singer Shakira, met with President Obama at the White House today and urged the President to approve comprehensive immigration reform legislation. According to Foreign Policy Magazine:

... Shakira isn't confining her advocacy to education; she also wants Obama to push forward on immigration reform. White House officials told Shakira that they hope to reach an agreement this year with the Republican Party to legalize undocumented immigrants, her representative said.

A lot of politically active performers have been reluctant to embrace immigration reform because of fear of a tea partyish backlash. I'm glad Shakira is not afraid to speak her mind.
