Comment: Innocent Until Looking Foreign - Mercedes Benz and Honda employees in Alabama were detained under Alabama's immigration law. CBS News reports "On Nov. 16, a German manager with Mercedes-Benz was arrested under the law in Tuscaloosa for not having a driver's license with him while driving a rental car. The charge was dismissed after the man provided documents in municipal court… Last week, a Honda employee from Japan was detained under the law in Leeds. Police at a roadblock found him carrying an international driver's license and passport, but not an Alabama license or Japanese license as required by the law… Alabama's governor said Monday he is worried the state's tough crackdown on illegal immigration law could hurt the recruitment of foreign industries, so he's reaching out to foreign executives to let them know that the state welcomes them… Bentley now says the two arrests involving foreign auto workers 'theoretically' could hurt Alabama's ability to recruit foreign industries." When the constitutional principle of "Innocent until proven guilty" is replaced by the principle "Innocent until looking foreign" will mere reassurances of the same politicians who championed that change allay the legitimate fears of foreign companies operating in a now hostile jurisdiction?
