BIG news for our neighbors in Alabama. Fox Latino reports that "In the wake of growing criticism of Alabama's new immigration law business leaders, religious leaders and the federal government, the man who would be charged with defending the law in the courts, Alabama's attorney general Luther Strange, is suggesting that state lawmakers need to repeal some portions of the statute that have been put on hold by federal courts and to clarify others. In a letter to legislative leaders, Strange argued that the proposed changes would make the law easier to defend in court and would "remove burdens on law- abiding citizens." Strange recommended repealing a section that makes it a crime for an undocumented immigrant to fail to carry registration documents... He also suggested repealing the requirement that public schools collect information on the immigration status of students."
Yes, the Alabama law is bad, probably the worst in the country, and the legislature there is taking note. Too bad the Georgia legislators are standing idly by.
