Immigration groups oppose Alabama immigration, warn tourists
United States, 3rd June: Several labor and civil rights organizations are up in arms against the recent approval to Alabama immigration changes.
They are asking tourists not to visit Alabama following recent crackdown on undocumented immigration.
And they also stated that they will be promoting advertisements throughout the nation asking tourists not to visit various sites in this US state.
Groups oppose changes to HB 56—As per the reports, coalition leaders are against the recent changes introduced to Alabama immigration law. They maintain that Alabama immigration law, also known as HB 56, is indeed, one of the harshest immigration law passed till date by any US state.
Demonstrations are likely to be held in front of various Hyundai car dealerships throughout the nation to urge the South Korean auto manufacturer to take a standing against Alabama immigration law.
The base of such a widespread criticism from coalition is because HB 56 criminalizes all aspects of an undocumented immigrant in Alabama, thus making the harsh legislation worst than the prior one.
Life a hell for undocumented immigrants in Alabama—If you happen to be an undocumented alien living in Alabama, then life is surely going to be a hell.
Living in Alabama as an undocumented immigrant is a crime to---
• be found without legal immigration documents;
• work in Alabama.
In addition, if any resident of Alabama signs any contract with an undocumented immigrant in Alabama or rents his or her property to an undocumented immigrant knowingly, it is considered as unlawful.
And the provisions of Alabama immigration law also require all K-12 schools to verify the immigration status of the students enrolled in public schools in this US state or whether the student is a foreigner living in the US unlawfully.
Panic and fear engulfs undocumented immigrants--All such provisions of the highly controversial Alabama immigration legislation have invoked fear in parents and students alike forcing them to miss their classes in Alabama state.
And Alabama Governor did not care to give any justification to undocumented immigrants for making their lives in Alabama miserable. This is especially noteworthy keeping in view the fact that Alabama is home to nearly 168,500 immigrants.
