The Colombian singer Shakira visited Phoenix, Arizona, yesterday over concerns that a new state law cracking down on illegal immigration will lead to racial profiling.

The Grammy winner hoped to meet Phoenix's police chief and Mayor to learn more about how the law will be implemented if it comes into effect this summer, said Trevor Neilson, her political and philanthropic adviser. The law, signed on Friday by Governor Jan Brewer, is viewed as the toughest of its kind in the US.
