"Alabama’s controversial immigration law, considered one of the toughest in the nation, is costing the state’s economy up to a whopping $10.8 billion annually, according to a new study.
Under the law, which passed in the state last year, police are allowed to detain individuals suspected of being an illegal immigrant and cannot produce proper documentation to show their status. Some provisions of the law were stayed by the courts, but the law has still resulted in families fleeing the state to avoid the new strict rules."
