Bishops Sue Alabama

Alabama has a crazy new immigration law that goes into effect 1 September. It's crazy and many bishops (though not all...yet?) in the state are going to court over it.

From Episcopal News Service.
'If enforced, Alabama's Anti-Immigration Law will make it a crime to follow God's command to be Good Samaritans,' the lawsuit states, according to the Birmingham News. 
The law, if enforced, will place Alabama church members in the 'untenable position of verifying individuals' immigration documentation' before being able to provide things such as food, clothing, shelter and transportation to those in need, the newspaper reported.
