Shakira is set to meet Phil Gordon, the mayor of Phoenix, Arizona, to discuss plans to oppose a controversial new law that requires immigrants to carry documents verifying their status, reports AZ Central.
Under the law, police officers will be required to question people regarding their status in the country if there is suspicion that they may be illegal, according to CBS news.
“She is in town to talk the mayor about the harmful effects of this bill,” said Debra Stark, Phil Gordon’s chief of staff.
Following the meeting, the Latina “She Wolf” will be shown around the Arizona capital by Vice Mayor Michael Nowacowski, the city’s only Hispanic councilman.
The Colombian singer will have the chance to meet with families who will be affected by the new law before heading to the state Capitol, where protests have been constant since the bill was signed last Friday.
Stark said that Shakira was behind the mayor’s plan to file a lawsuit to try to stop the immigration law.
“Shakira supports the mayor and likes his message about the bill,” Stark said.
