Vandals smeared a swastika made of refried beans into the glass doors of the Arizona's State Capitol building and is an apparent reaction to the state's extreme, new anti-illegal immigration law. This is the first case of vandalism reported since the law was signed on Friday, reports KTVK.
"Capitol police arrived on the scene at about 6 a.m., after a swastika was found smeared on the glass doors of the House and Senate buildings. While it first looked like mud on the doors, it turned out be refried beans. On the sidewalk, beans were used to write "AZ=Nazi," again with a swastika. It's not clear when exactly the vandalism happened, but police believe it was some time overnight. "That is what happens when there is so much fear and there is so much disappointment," said Gustavo Ramirez, a protester from California. 'The laws that have been passed, they are Nazi laws. They are not considering humanity. They are a crime against humanity.' Ramirez said while he does not support the new law, vandalism is not the way to make a statement."
Meanwhile: Mexican President Felipe Calderon describes Arizona's new law as "racial discrimination." Calderon said his Foreign Ministry and consuls in the United States are seeking to challenge the law, which allows police to question and detain anyone in the they believe may be an illegal entrant.
