Strange Says Some Immigration Law Changes Are Okay
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says he is not opposed to the Alabama Legislature making some changes to the state's immigration law. He says he only wants lawmakers to hold off on changing sections dealing with provisions being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court in its review of a Arizona law.
Strange said last week that the Legislature should hold off on legislation changing the immigration law until the Supreme Court rules in the Arizona case.
But Strange said in a statement Tuesday there may be "good reason" for the Legislature to make changes not related to the Arizona case, such as making the law easier to comply with and enforce. A bill making some changes in the law has passed the House and is pending in the Senate.
