"Alabama’s H.B. 56, signed into law on June 9, 2011, is the nation’s harshest anti-immigrant law. The bill makes it a crime to be without status, requires law enforcement to check the papers of anyone they suspect of being undocumented, mandates that public schools check the legal status of their students, abrogates any contract made with an undocumented immigrant, and makes it a felony for undocumented immigrants to contract with a government entity (including for such basic human rights as having water connected to your house)."

Profiling’s Legal! Court Upholds Alabama’s Worst-in-Nation Immigration Law - COLORLINES

Profiling’s Legal! Court Upholds Alabama’s Worst-in-Nation Immigration Law - COLORLINES | Digital Research Project on Racial Profiling (Immigration Laws) | Scoop.it

"The Department of Justice and other groups argued that Alabama violated the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, which says that federal law takes precedence over state law, and that Alabama “pre-empted” federal immigration laws by attempting to create its own statutes and enforce them on its own. Traditionally, only the federal government has had the right to write and enforce immigration law, and Alabama had no right to step into this territory, the DOJ argued."

 

“Not only will we appeal the court’s decision, we will also mobilize and organize Alabamians to repeal this law and stand up for immigrant justice,” Isabel Rubio, executive director of the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama, said in a statement. HICA is also a plaintiff in the case."
