With the big news about Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) signing the tough anti-immigration bill into law on Friday, you knew Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were gonna be talking about it on Monday, and they didn't disappoint.  From Jon's pictorial lesson on how to spot an illegal immigrant and calling Arizona our "meth lab of democracy", to Stephen's Wørd segment, they did not disappoint.  :-)  Stephen left all Arizonans with this advice:

Better yet, leave the police out of it.  They don't make the laws, they just enforce them.  Instead, everyone in Arizona should go to the Governor's mansion, and show her your paperwork.  (Perhaps a flaming bag of paperwork)  Or, even better yet, prove to her you're a citizen... when you vote.

Videos below the fold....

First up, here's the Daily Show coverage of the immigration bill.  For those non-regulars, what makes the clip even more ironic is that Jason Jones is NOT an American citizen.  He's Canadian.

And here's Stephen's Wørd segment.

Poor Esteban Colberto, being treated like that by the police.  :-(

So to any Arizonans reading this, like Stephen said, register your disapproval with Jan Brewer this November at the ballot box when she's up for election.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
