Rep. Luis Gutierrez took Arizona to the woodshed this morning over the remaining shreds of SB 1070. After using the example of Ted Koppel and Geraldo, he turned to the example of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber to illustrate that Gomez would be the one targeted by the 'papers, please' request even though Bieber is the immigrant.
