Alabama Immigration Law Delayed

Looks as though unemployed Alabamians will be without jobs for longer, and illegal workers will still get paid. At least, that’s what supporters of the illegal-immigration law HB56 may think after a federal judge blocked the controversial law from going into effect. HB56, one of the strictest measures against illegal residents, stops citizens from renting to them, transporting them, or giving them a place to stay. The measure even makes public schools check the paperwork of students. The law was blocked because the judge needs to “address the numerous challenges” the law presents—primarily by taking the authority over immigration out of the federal government’s hands.
