Alabama’s new immigration bill

“The tough new bill includes strict provisions that go even farther than the controversial Arizona law that sparked national debate last year

Alabama’s legislature has passed a hard-hitting bill that would make it a state crime to be an undocumented immigrant. Inspired by Arizona’s controversial law, the Alabama bill would make cops ask for proof of legal residence from anyone they think might be in the U.S. illegally, with the person jailed until their status is verified.

It would also penalize anyone who hires, shelters, rents to, or gives a ride to illegal immigrants, and bars illegal immigrants from public universities.
