“Alabama’s immigration law is economically absurd”

So says my friend Scott Beaulier, an economist at Troy University:

Immigrants — both legal and illegal — are a force for good. They create jobs, they enrich culture and they make our state a more interesting and dynamic one in which to live. Alabama’s immigration law is a pathetic, backward attempt to play politics and protect Alabamians from the bogeyman of immigration.


But reading the comments to the article is enough to make one depressed about one’s fellow Americans – or at least Alabamians.
