Immigration bill on House agenda for lawmakers' return

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - A sweeping immigration law similar to Arizona's controversial legislation could come up for a vote in the Alabama House.

The bill would strip the business licenses of those businesses that knowingly hire illegal immigrants and would also make it a felony for illegal immigrants to register to vote.

The proposal will be on the House agenda when lawmakers return from spring break on March 22nd.
