Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez Brought Into Congress Debate Over Immigration (VIDEO)


By Daniel Gates



Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez made an unexpected “appearance” on Wednesday — on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives during debate over Arizona’s controversial immigration law.



The pair were used by Congressman Luis Gutierrez to highlight the inherent difficulty Arizona law enforcement officials face in trying to determine — based only on sight — who is and is not American.

To illustrate the shortcomings of such profiling, Rep. Gutierrez used five side-by-side comparisons in which the individual you’d assume is American is not.

Gomez is from Texas, while Bieber is, of course, from Canada — a distinction Gutierrez argues might not be so obvious to the untrained eye.

The Bieber/Gomez portion begins around the 2:20 mark.
