When asked, in the context of Arizona's new immigration law, about a Justice Department  report showing that one-out-of-five American teenagers uses illegal drugs and that most of those drugs come out of Mexico, Sherri Shepherd, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” said she did not care. Arizona’s new law against illegal immigration is “very unfair,” she said, and America has got to do better.

Shepherd spoke with CNSNews.com at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on May 1 in Washington, D.C. CNSNews.com asked her, “A lot of celebrities have come out against the Arizona immigration law recently, what’s your stance on it, do you have an opinion on the law?”

Shepherd said, “It’s got to be better. It’s got – the fact that you can stop somebody under reasonable suspicion and there’s people from Canada that are over here legally who will never be stopped. I think it’s, you know, it’s very unfair, and I think that it’s just got to be, you got to do better than what you’re doing, and I think the federal government needs to get involved.”

CNSNews.com then asked Shepherd, “The Justice Department recently released a report saying that one-in-five teenagers in the United States use illegal substances and those illegal substances are from Mexico, that’s the main provider –” and she said, “I don’t care! You still have to do better.”
