Ala. Governor Signs Strong Immigration-Enforcement LawThursday, June 9, 2011, 12:19 PM EDT – posted on NumbersUSA  Alabama Governor Robert Bentley today signed legislation (HB 56) that requires the use of E-Verify by all employers in the state. The law also gives Alabama some the strongest illegal-immigration enforcement tools in the country.Sen. Scott Beason, the Senate sponsor of HB 56, said, “This is a jobs bill. We have a problem with an illegal workforce that displaces Alabama workers. We need to put those people back to work. That’s the No.1 priority.” Rep. Micky Hammon, the measure’s original sponsor, said the bill was carefully drafted to be sound constitutionally.The law requires all businesses, public and private, to begin using E-Verify effective April 1, 2012. Businesses that do not comply face suspension of its business license and loss of employee expensing for state income tax purposes. All state and local businesses must be in compliance by Jan. 1, 2012 or face loss of business license and contract.The law calls for assisting small business compliance with the E-Verify requirement by establishing an E-Verify designated agent that can check new hires on the behalf of businesses that employ fewer than 25 employees.Other provisions within the law will:

  • Create an affirmative defense against business penalties if E-Verify is used;

  • Prohibit lawsuits against businesses that fire an employee due to an E-Verify final non-confirmation determination;

  • Require state and local governments to use the SAVE system to verify public-benefits eligibility for those attesting to be non-citizens;

  • Create a misdemeanor for failure to carry an alien registration document;

  • Require police, after a lawful stop and when practicable, to check a person’s immigration status if the officer has a reasonable suspicion that the person is illegally present. 4th Amendment protections are included and the status-check requirement is stayed for persons who are crime victims or witnesses;

  • Create misdemeanors for seeking day-laborer work when illegal present and hiring illegally-present day laborers;

  • Create misdemeanors for aiding and abetting illegal aliens;

  • Ban illegal aliens from state universities and colleges; and

  • Prohibit illegal-alien sanctuary policies;

  • Require the Attorney General to apply for a 287(g) MOU for state police;

  • Create a crime for producing fake IDs; and

  • Require elementary and secondary schools to request a birth certificate for all enrolling students and to determine whether such children were born outside of the U.S. or are children of illegal aliens requiring English-as-a-Second-language classes. Also requires the collection of statistics and a determination of the costs related to illegal-alien students.
