    Alabama promises revisions to tough immigration law.


    BIRMINGHAM, Ala (Reuters) - Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said on Friday he would work to revise the state's tough new immigration law following embarrassing incidents of foreign workers being detained because they were not carrying sufficient identification.
    Alabama promises revisions to tough immigration law - Yahoo! News

    Alabama should not apologize for the fact that car-company employees were detained for not having their papers available on request.
    The Immigration and Nationality Act requires all aliens 18 years and older to carry their green card at all times. It is the car company's responsibility to ensure its employees comply with our laws

    Illegal immigration is a crime but being in U.S. is not a crime? That’s like saying breaking into my house is a crime but being in my house is not?
    U.S. troops can raid civilian Iraqi and Afghanistan homes looking for “suspected” terrorist terrorizing women and children but cannot raid homes in U.S. “suspected” of harboring Illegal Aliens? Botched raid in Iraq and Afghanistan have killed civilians. No Illegal Aliens has ever been killed in an immigration raid.

    'The details are to be announced later this month, but they are apparently precisely in response to fewer immigrants attempting to cross the border illegally.'

    Fewer illegal crossers today does NOT mean fewer illegal crossers tomorrow.

    So we are going to buy a few million dollars worth of drones and be able to see the illegals but not capture them.

    In wake of immigration law, some migrants return to Alabama
    21 Feb.`12 - When Alabama's immigration law went into effect in September, it sent shock waves throughout Hispanic communities within the state. Whole families left overnight, parents pulled their children out of school, and city centers became ghost towns as legal and illegal immigrants alike hid from police.

    They could have made that back in tax revenue from legal immigrants.

    I applaud Alabama for taking a serious approach that got results. It does need to be tweaked a bit so that citizens aren't subject to be caught up in random type actions. But over all, I think Alabama may end up with the blueprint for getting this right. Go after the employers and the illegals where they work. It's the only way to get results. Alabama experienced the sort of immediate self deportation that is the key to addressing this in an economically practical manner. Make them afraid to show up for work and make the employers scared to hire them and the rest takes care of itself, practically.
