    #Alabama Immigration Law

    In other words, Alabama’s anti-immigrant law effectively makes it a crime to simply live as an undocumented immigrant in the state.


    Am I wrong in thinking, "Why is this supposed to be shocking?" Being an undocumented immigrant, aka Illegal immigrant, is, well, illegal. I understand all of the possible mitigating circumstances, and I'm not defending the law that is the subject of that article. But to use the above statement as the final sentence of your article makes it sound like it's supposed to be this earth-shaking revelation. Any illigal immigrant, or person with an undocumented immigration status, should be aware of the precarious position that they are in, and should not be surprised when they find it difficult to obtain government services.
