The AP recently obtained a letter from Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange to state legislators urging a rewrite of the controversial immigration law. Specifically, he recommended that the legislature repeal two parts of the law: the section that criminalizes failing to carry registration documents while unauthorized, and the section requiring schools to collect information on the immigration status of students. The initial report from the wire service described the content of the letter. Later reports on Politico and CNN also included business groups’ criticisms of the law, in particular fallout from the Mercedez-Benz incident.
