Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were strategically brought in the middle of a badass congress debate surrounding Arizona’s “Show Me Your Papers” law. Congressman Luis V. Gutierrez introduced the guessing game ‘Spot the Immigrant’ and during round two (around 2:19) he revealed flashcards of the happy celebrity 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 said sarcastically. “I somehow got that backwards. Actually Ms. Gomez of Texas has helped Mr. Bieber of Canada learn about his adopted country. Justin, when you perform in Phoenix remember to bring your papers.”
Of course, Bieber was born in Canada. The congressman was trying to show how you can’t judge a person’s origin by their appearance. We love that he busted out the celebrity flashcards, considering it’s a decent pull for the younger crowd and is outside of the politico box.
