Well, the times they are a-changin'.
Republicans in Alabama have discussed voting to amend their State immigration law. Two State Senators, Rep. Micky Hammon, R-Decatur, and Sen. Scott Beason, R-Gardendale, have introduced bills. A separate bill to amend the law has already passed the Alabama House of Representatives.

Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh believes there will be a vote either today or tomorrow at the latest.
I'll keep you posted.
