Law feels like 'meanness'

William Willimon, a United Methodist bishop and head of the North Alabama Conference, said Alabama's new immigration law "feels like intimidation and meanness."

He added, "One of the most nefarious aspects of this law is it appears to criminalize Alabamians in the act of being helpful and compassionate."

The law makes it illegal to employ an undocumented immigrant or to give that person a ride.
