BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Robert Bentley says Alabama's new immigration law is very complicated and he wants the Legislature to simplify it.
Bentley told the Birmingham Business Alliance on Monday that he is talking with business and law enforcement groups about what changes they would like to see the Legislature make.
He says it's too early to say what he might recommend in the Legislative session starting Feb. 7. But he said the essence of the law prohibiting the hiring of illegal workers won't be changed. The president of the Birmingham Business Alliance, Brian Hilson, agrees with the governor that the law needs some changes.
