Alabama church leaders seek repeal of immigration law

"Saying he was in their prayers, leaders of the Catholic, Episcopal and Methodist churches in Alabama sent a letter to Gov. Robert Bentley on Monday urging him to support efforts to repeal the state's strict immigration law, known as HB 56.  The letter, signed by three bishops who sued to block HB 56 in August, called the statute a violation of the Constitution and said it imposed burdens on immigrants, law enforcement and small farmers.  The letter says the leaders would work with the governor to repeal the law." - Montgomery Advertiser, Dec. 20, 2011.
