Immigration Politics: Alabama's immigration bill challenged in court

Alabama's immigration bill challenged in court: "Hundreds of lawyers, activists, state lawmakers and journalists crowded into the Hugo L. Black Federal Courthouse in downtown Birmingham Wednesday for a daylong hearing on the future of Alabama's illegal immigration law that's set to go into effect next week.

Chief Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn heard arguments from lawyers representing the Obama administration, local clergy, the ACLU and Hispanic interest groups who oppose parts or all of the law, as well as from Attorney General Luther Strange and his staff who defended the law."
