Immigration Crackdown - Alabama: Hundreds rally against immigration law

The Montgomery Advertiser: "Just days before Alabama's strict immigration law is to go into effect, hundreds rallied in front of the state Capitol to pro­test the law, which makes it a state crime to be an undocu­mented alien in Alabama and for undocumented aliens to work in the state, among other provisions.

The organizer of the event, Edward Menefee, invoked the name of the Rev. Martin Lu­ther King Jr. and his famous "I have a dream" speech, which he delivered 48 years ago Sun­day. "(King) preached about the beloved community, where all people would be welcomed and all people would be treated with respect," Menefee said to the crowd."
