Civil rights group accuses Alabama of abusing Hispanics

MOBILE, Alabama (Reuters) – A civil rights group that sued the state of Alabama over an immigration law that is considered the toughest in the nation, said on Monday that it had compiled a list of what it called abuses against Hispanics since the law took effect last year. The report from the Southern Poverty Law Center, titled “Alabama’s Shame: HB56 and the War on Immigrants,” recounts stories of alleged harassment against Alabama’s Hispanics, both legal and illegal, culled from more than 5,200 hotline complaints fielded since September. Alabama passed what is widely considered the nation’s toughest anti-immigration law last June, requiring police to detain people they suspect of being in the country illegally if they cannot produce proper documentation when stopped for any reason, among other measures
