Fear in Ala. towns over tough immigration law hurts businesses

"The weak economy has hurt business. But nothing has battered Discount Grocery and Variety worse than Alabama's newly enacted immigration law, owner Andres Miguel says. The law — which has made Alabama the toughest state in the USA for undocumented immigrants to live and find work — has scattered families, including the majority of his customers, he says. Business is down 60% from last month — and dropping by the day."
