Ruling on Arizona's Immigration Law Likely to Impact Alabama's Law
The Supreme Court's decision on the Arizona Immigration Law will set the stage for a ruling on Alabama's law. CBS 8 Legal Analyst James Anderson explains what we can expect to see here.
"If they block this law, I believe it's good news here for everybody in Alabama."
"I travel a lot and I've been pulled over a couple of times and I believe they did it because I'm hispanic," he said, "He asked me for my drivers license. He asked me for my insurance card and I showed him and he let me go."
The ruling on Alabama's law will come from the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. Anderson says they will follow the guidlelines from the Supreme Court's ruling on Arizona's law.
Governor Robert Bentley says his office is analyzing the effect today's ruling will have on Alabama's law, but says the heart of Alabama's law does remain intact.
