As the U.S. state of Arizona prepares to enact a new law which will allow police officers to ask for proof of residency from anyone being investigated for a crime, the spotlight has shifted on the role immigration plays on developed countries around the world.

Opponents of Arizona's SB 1070 say the measure is discriminatory and invites racial profiling, but supporters say it's necessary to curb the flood of illegal immigrants in the border state.
On July 21, ten nations joined Mexico's opposition and signed a declaration expressing their "strong condemnation and profound rejection of the law," according to Senate President Carlos Navarrete Ruiz.
As countries around the world voice their opinion on the Arizona law, the debate brings into question the role that immigration can play in a country and whether it either helps or hinders.
Countries like Canada have gained a strong reputation for embracing immigration from countries around the world and today, Canada is one of the most multicultural and diverse nations on earth.
Other countries like the United Kingdom and Australia have had more difficult paths to multiculturalism.
In Australia, Pauline Hanson's One Nation party won a handful of seats in the Queensland parliament on the back of an anti-immigration message.
In the United Kingdom, Nick Griffin's British National party also received a great deal of attention for their right-wing policies, but remains relatively ignored in mainstream politics.
