Report: Some illegal immigrants prepare to flee Alabama ahead of new law
Illegal immigrants in Alabama are selling off household items such as microwaves and sofas in preparation to leave the state if a tough new law goes into effect Sept. 1.
The Birmingham News' David White collects anecdotal evidence that some of the estimated 120,000 unauthorized immigrants in the state are considering leaving or have already left because they worry they would be arrested and deported under the new law.
Can you imagine any mayor/governor not holding a press conference if criminals left their jurisdiction in droves? If there was evidence that sex offenders were fleeing the state the headlines would be crying victory. If meth users wanted outside of city limits due to tough new laws there would be cheers at city hall.
But because these are politically popular criminals we get sob stories from the media.
Getting criminal aliens to self deport at no cost to the taxpayer is so easy even a politician can do it.
