New Alabama Immigration Law Tougher Than Arizona's SB-1070 Measure | PBS NewsHour | June 10, 2011 | PBS
The law contains similar provisions to the hotly-debated Arizona law now making its way through the federal court system -- but Alabama goes even further.
"This signals real momentum on the side of immigration hawks," said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank in favor of stricter enforcement. Among the provisions of the new law:
-Public schools will have to confirm students’ legal residency status through birth certificates or sworn affidavits.
-Illegal immigrants are banned from attending state colleges.
-Transporting, harboring, or renting property to undocumented immigrants will be illegal.
GRANNYSAYS:I hope more stringent laws follow. U.S. taxpayers have been exploited for decades, being forced to support anchor babies of foreigners while they evade taxes by working for cash, steal our identities and jobs and then send billions of U.S. dollars illegally obtained to their own country every year.
