Buried in another thread was a link to a new song Britt performed in Tucson, AZ. I thought the song deserved its own thread because it is very touching, especially given the location where it is performed. The song begins "If the immigrant is not your brother than God is not your father", which is quite a moving statement considering the anti-immigration sentiment in Arizona. The anti-immigration climate in Arizona is high because their governor recently signed into law extremely discriminatory legislation. The Arizona law will be struck down because immigration policy is handled at the federal level, but still hateful actions create hostile environments for people who contribute significantly to our society. My heart swelled at the end of the song when a lady in the audience screamed "We love you", she meant it! Undocumented people often don't have a voice in our society and I think it is a bold move for Britt to stand up for them, despite who it may alienate.
