Discredited Southern Poverty Law Center meddling in Alabama
The sorely discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is advocating for an Alabama legal lot line for illegal aliens.
From the CNN June 6, 2012 article "Civil rights groups urge immigrants to use hot line":
The hot line launched in September, shortly after the state's original immigration law went into effect. The law had several provisions, including one that allowed police to check a person's immigration status if they suspected the person may be in the country illegally. The law was changed in May in what lawmakers said was an attempt to fix some of its unintended consequences and to simplify the law. The new law also clarified what constitutes proper documentation and relaxed provisions dealing with religious leaders and subcontractors who unknowingly hire illegal workers.
