Hundreds rally against immigration lawPublished: Feb 15, 2012 11:30 am By: Brian Lyman
"Irma Alvarez and her niece, Carmen Espinoza, moved to Alabama from southern California a few years ago to enjoy "small town life."
"(California) was a really crazy environment, kind of rough," Espinoza said. "We heard it was really peaceful out here, so we moved out of here four years ago. And it was really nice."
Now, they said, they see their neighbors leaving to avoid the impact of the state's immigration law. "We see friends moving to other states because they're scared about being stopped," Alvarez said. "They have small children and they're scared about being stopped for papers."
Espinoza and Alvarez joined a few hundred people who crowded into the plaza outside the Alabama State House on Tuesday to protest the state's immigration law, known as HB 56."
