Of course the governor of Alabama is looking to make changes to the immigration law. After the arrest of the Mercedes Benz executive from Germany, they have no choice. I am sure they are going to put another spin on it to make it look like they are concerned about the people. I hope the citizens of Alabama will deal with the governor at the appropriate time.
