Alabama immigration law challenged by Justice Department

Posted on November 28th, 2011 No Comments

Alabama’s immigration law, H.B. 56, heralded as the toughest immigration law in the nation, has been challenged in federal court by the Justice Department.

This week, two officials from the Justice Department will visit Alabama to gather more information about the impact and legality of the law. The assistant attorney general of the Department’s Civil Rights Division says he is concerned after hearing that thousands of children have dropped out of school following the law’s passing. He also believes H.B. 56 has led to racial profiling and employers using the law not to pay workers.

Another official states that the federal government has primacy in regulating immigration, and that state’s individual immigration laws make the problem worse.
