Alabama having second thoughts on harsh immigration law

One can only hope that the state loses even more money to other states before they finalize realize the obnoxiousness of their actions. NY Times:

Nearly a year after enacting an immigration law that supporters describe as the toughest in the country, Alabama is considering major revisions to its immigration policies.

On Thursday, a sponsor of the law, State Representative Micky Hammon, proposed eliminating or altering several of its most controversial sections. The law, which enhances police authority to deal with illegal immigrants, is popular with most Alabamians but faced a backlash from civil liberties advocates and business leaders.

The law’s supporters said the changes would make it clearer, easier to enforce and less susceptible to legal challenges.
