Alabama gained notoriety in June when Governor Robert Bentley signed into law HB 56, the Beason-Hammon Alabama Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act. HB 56 quickly gained a reputation as the most aggressive in a long line of state immigration legislation and attracted interest (and ire) from the federal government, immigrant rights groups, and others. A recent federal court decision has halted implementation of certain provisions of the Act, but the central requirement that employers use E-Verify remains intact and on schedule.
