"Interim State Superintendent Larry E. Craven said Alabama schools are prepared to check the citizenship status of new enrollees, as required by the state's new immigration law. But he emphasized that no student will be kicked out of school if their parents fail to provide the documentation.
Craven said a memo was sent today to local school superintendents informing them a judge had cleared for implementation the section of Alabama's new immigration law requiring schools to check citizenship status.
"We will comply with the law," Craven said today.
School systems will ask parents and guardians to provide a copy of a child's birth certificate when they enroll in public school for the first time. If none is available, they will be asked for additional documentation and to sign a declaration that the student is a legal citizen or immigrant." [Source]
Thanks to HB56, some of those undocumented folks are already fleeing the state. I guess that the law is doing what it was intended to do.
It should be interesting to see what happens a few years down the road. Since those evil immigrants were taking all the jobs, let's see if the unemployment rate goes down in Dixie.
Finally, why are republican candidates for president so angry? Newt is cursing out reporters, and the usually mild mannered John Huntsman is in a twitter war with the Donald. And don't even get me started on Herman Cain. That is one angry Negro. He thinks that the rest of you Negroes have been brainwashed and that you are all trapped on the democratic plantation. (Mmm, what if there are two plantations and he is just on the one with less black folks?)
I guess you have to show anger and resentment to properly represent your constituency. They are, after all, very angry these days. They want someone out there who can show their anger to the rest of us. -OK, we get it; you want your country back.- I guess that this current crop of candidates are just giving their people what they want.
Let's see how they start working back to the middle come general election time. A-merry-cans don't want anger, they want hope and optimism. Times are tough out here, the last thing they want is some "woe is me" type politician preaching gloom and doom.
