Uncertainty lingers in wake of Alabama immigration law

In wake of immigration law, some migrants return to Alabama

by Alan Gomez, USA TODAY
Updated 20h 53m ago

Good. Maybe the illegal aliens will get it they aren't wanted and go HOME.

Notice that the photos they used of illegal immigrants working are of them working in some construction site or in an agricultural field. When will the media start showing the reality of where they really work? How about helping to change the belief that they are all working for poor wages in the hot sun?

They can't. Their corporate masters won't let them. The truth would destroy their agenda.
