Anti-Immigration Law Takes Toll on Alabama Poultry Business


“For years, most poultry workers here [Albertville, Ala.] were Mexican immigrants, including some who were in the country illegally. But last fall, after a tough state law against illegal immigrants took effect, many vanished overnight, rattling the town’s large Hispanic community and leaving the poultry business scrambling to find workers willing to stand for hours in a wet, chilly room, cutting up dead chickens.” (Washington Post)

These laws are anti-free market.
