  • Harsh Immigration Laws Threaten "Humanitarian Crisis" in Alabama, Prompting Latinos t

    The state of Alabama became the latest hotspot in the national immigration debate when it enacted a new law, HB 56, that requires police to arrest anyone they suspect of being in the country without legal status. It also prevents courts from enforcing contracts involving undocumented immigrants and allows public Read more here



    After Alabama Immigration Law, Few Americans Taking Immigrants' Work
    ONEONTA, Ala. -- Potato farmer Keith Smith saw most of his immigrant workers leave after Alabama's tough immigration law took effect, so he hired Americans. It hasn't worked out: Most show up late, work slower than seasoned farm hands and are ready to call it a day after lunch or by midafternoon. Some quit after a single day. Read more here

      No crisis, it is working as intended.

        I don't think they intended illegal immigrant kids not turning up at the public schools. When that happened AL officials were practically begging the parents through the media that this law would not be a bar to enroll in school and please send your kids in! Of course the numbskull AL politicians should have seen that coming..presumably they couldn't be bothered

          'Harsh' laws? This is America...we make our own laws....but illegals obey paltry few of them, including our immigration laws....if they get frightened and go back to their own country, good riddance. The agricultural whiners forgot to mention that they pay their (illegal) workers pennies, so it's no wonder few Americans show up to do the work....now, if the agricultural types paid a living wage, things would be different (and no, a head of lettuce would not suddenly cost $20, as that phukkhed Rush Limbaugh claims)....paying better wages might cause the price of fruits and veggies to go up by 15 cents to a quarter a pound...big FN deal.

            That is exactly what they intended. It was intended to encourage illegal aliens to leave Alabama.

              Under the Federal Law of the land (the Constitution if you prefer), ALL children of school age cannot be denied an education based on race or immigration status. If AL were intending to deny them as you imply then that would be illegal. It's one of the reasons this law now on hold and will likely get struck down as unconstitutional. You really should read the laws of the this land sometime fedNUT.

                  No Amnesty, congratulations also on opening up jobs for your unemployed friends and family on the farms,hotels and all the places that previously hired both documented and undocumented immigrants. Hopefully, they can drive up wages since there will be more jobs than the number of workers willing to do the jobs. ps: don't tell the employers.

                    Alabama's law is working exactly as intended.

                    The liberal media's attempts to engender sympathy for illegal aliens by the constant printing of such stories is falling on deaf ears.

                      If that's the case, why are AL school districts administrators "crying and begging" both documented and undocumented immigrants to return their children to schools? Empty classrooms is the intended goal?

                      Why are the farmers complaining about replacement farm workers not being able to stay on the field jobs and fruits rotten away? I guess that is also the goal of short sighted AL Gov.

                      "Sundevilish" i'm waiting for the day you will shoot yourself in the head just to treat a common headache. You are that kind of person.

                        Lets see..how many illegal immigrants has the new AL law removed? None. How many illegal immigrants has the US Government removed? 396,906 so far this year.

                        Why should the US Government help AL with a law that it wrote to try and circumvent Federal Law? Way to go Janet!

                        No US help on Alabama immigration law, Homeland secretary Janet Napolitano says

                        The U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security told Congress Wednesday that her department, which includes the agency responsible for enforcing federal immigration law, is not helping implement Alabama's new immigration law.

                        The comments from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano throw into question the ultimate effectiveness of Alabama's crackdown on illegal immigration, which allows local police to detain people who are in the country without permission. If the federal government doesn't follow through and deport them, they stay in the country.

                        Blog.al.com

                        Bottom line. If you want to create your own State immigration law in violation of the Federal Law, you have to physically carry it out including the removal process otherwise its a meaningless exercise. Since the Federal Government will not help them will AL start their own immigration courts and removal/COR system??

                          S.tupid Brit. There is no Federal "law" allowing illegal aliens to attend school. There is a Supreme Court decision that prohibits States from denying them admission or expelling them for their immigration status. They are still illegal aliens and subject to deportation. And they are prohibited from attending school in the U.S. under Federal law.

                          And, no, it is not the intent of the law to expell or prohibit the students from attending schools. It is the intent of the law to discourage illegal aliens from remaining in the State and encouraging them to leave.

                          The purpose of the identifying illegal alien students is to prepare the ground to challenge the Supreme Court decision, which Chief Justice Roberts has already publically stated was wrongly decided.

                          Poor Brit don't know nothin'.

                              Really? Yes there is. Whose the idiot here? In cases where the Federal Law is challenged, a SCOTUS ruling becomes the Law of the Land and is final unless a new challenge is made and accepted to be judged by them you dimwit!

                              Ever wonder why AL didn't make their Law to specifically deny education to school age illegal immigrants? Duh!

                              You even then mention the SCOTUS ruling after wrongly claiming there is no Federal Law
