The Alabama Senate voted 26-6 in favor of passing an anti-illegal immigration measure that is similar to Arizona's controversial immigration law. "This bill is about job creation to ensure that Alabamians who want a job will get a job and won't be denied in lieu of an illegal immigrant or fired to hire an illegal immigrant," said Republican state Sen. Scott Beason, who sponsored the bill. The measure will soon return to the state House of Representatives to be approved and then would need Gov. Robert Bentley's signature.
