Alabama amends immigration lawPublished: May 17, 2012 9:00 am By: Tim Mak
"The Alabama legislature approved Wednesday changes to the state’s controversial immigration law - keeping key portions intact while adding a new provision to publish the names of undocumented immigrants who appear in court, regardless of the trial’s outcome, according to reports.
The state’s House and Senate approved changes to the law that would require the Department of Homeland Security to post a list of undocumented immigrants who appeared in court for violations of state law, even if they are not eventually convicted of a crime, reports the Montgomery Advertiser.
The bill kept in place the immigration measure that has generated the most controversy: the requirement that police verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally, according to Reuters."
