Alabama Signs into Law Immigration Enforcement Bill

On Thursday, Alabama signed into law HB 56, The Beason-Hammon Alabama Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act, a punitive immigration enforcement bill that would require local police officers to check the immigration status of anyone they “reasonably suspect” of being in the country unlawfully, make it a crime to transport or rent property to undocumented immigrants, and require education officials to check the immigration status of all public school students before enrollment and report it to state officials.
