“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.

Amen.

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