Comment: Oppression Not States Right - The New York Times opinion piece points out that in its fight against immigration, Alabama is attempting to overturn long-established constitutional principles in the name of state's rights. "And after reports of bullying and harassment and of terrified parents keeping their children home from school, Justice asked 39 school superintendents for data on absences and withdrawals. Alabama's attorney general, Luther Strange, responded with the absurd declaration that Washington had no legal right to do that. Actually it does, under the Civil Rights Act and the Equal Educational Opportunities Act. The Fair Housing Act, the Safe Streets Act, the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act, also apply to aspects of Alabama's crackdown on Hispanic immigrants… No state has the right to violate sacred Constitutional guarantees of equality and due process. Our country settled that issue long ago, the hard way." Please express your opinion in our letters section or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
