The three-member panel of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals struck down various provisions of Alabama’s ill-advised immigration law last month. Because of my work load, I have not had the time to read the opinion in detail, but I plan to do so. But based on what I have read and been told, the opinion can’t be good news for the lawyers representing the state. The cost, confusion and excessive burden placed on the state and on local governments made this politically-motivated law a waste of taxpayers’ badly-needed money and put Alabama in the news for months, but not in a positive way. With all of the critically serious problems facing our state, setting out on a Don Quixote-like mission made little sense to me at the time and makes even less today. But maybe we can now get down to dealing with the real issues that face all Alabamians. That should be the order of the day for all concerned since there are lots of issues to deal with in government at every level.
