    Update: Top Alabama lawmaker says new immigration law will withstand court challengeJuly 21, 2011,

    "Make no mistake, this lawsuit will not undo Alabama's immigration law. If the court finds problems with parts of the law, tweaks can be made," Hubbard said in a statement issued after today's motion was filed. "But Alabama is not going to be a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants. Alabama will have a strict immigration law and we will enforce it."

    Hispanics Flee Alabama’s Immigration Law
    Jun 28, 2011

    When Tuscaloosa, Alabama, begins rebuilding more than 7,200 homes and businesses leveled by an April 27 tornado, it may find itself missing a workforce capable of putting the city together again.

    What they are saying is that Americans will not do the job but Americans are not capable of doing the job. WTF?

    The Monitor's View
    'Jobs that Americans won't do'

    With millions of native-born people desperate for income, those jobs presumed to be too menial are now acceptable – a point to remember in the immigration debate.

    With people desperate for income, downward mobility may be on the way up. News reports show long lines of applicants for a janitor's job or for work at a factory after a federal raid clears out the illegal workers.

    Maybe it's a myth that Americans won't take certain jobs. In fact, a study by the Center for Immigration Studies used 2005-07 data to look at 465 occupations. Only four had a majority of immigrants in them: plasterers and stucco masons, agricultural graders and sorters, personal appliance workers, and tailors and dressmakers.
    In every other occupation, such as janitors, maids, and groundskeepers, a large majority were filled by native-born Americans. The report's conclusion: "The often-made argument that immigrants only take jobs Americans don't want is simply wrong."

    The uneducated whites and blacks and the legals. So who is this country letting down??? The uneducatd whites and blacks and the legals. And of course the rest of the poor who were not given perks or special preference to attend college 'for not having the advantage of being in this country illegally'. Go figure!!

    Since the Federal Government REFUSES to protect our borders every State has illegals and needs their own laws to make up for the failure of the Fed.

    This is not surprising and completely appropriate.

    The ‘reporting requirement’ with regard to undocumented children attending school, while it doesn’t prohibit enrollment, will clearly intimidate parents and keep children from enrolling in violation of Plyler v Doe.
