Seth MacFarlane likens Arizona's immigration law to Nazi Germany

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has spoken out against the Arizona immigration law that allows police officers to request proof that people are in the United States legally if they have “reasonable suspicion” that those people aren’t. “Nobody but the Nazis ever asked anybody for their papers,” MacFarlane told Reuters Television. “Walking down the street, a cop can come up to you and say ‘May I see your papers?’ — I think they should be required to ask that question in German if the law sticks around.”
MacFarlane said he couldn’t fathom how the legislation passed. “I don’t know, people are getting crazier maybe…When I read that, I said, ‘Wow, that’s more shocking and egregious than anything we’ve ever done on the show, and it’s a law.'”
It’s nice that MacFarlane weighed in, but really, we’re just waiting for Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s take on South Park.
