In 2011, Alabama passed perhaps the country's toughest
immigration law, seeking to push undocumented immigrants out (previously)
. In October 2013, the state agreed to permanently block
major portions of the law in response to lawsuits. Two years on, popular opinion and political momentum have largely turned against
the law, and the immigrants are mostly still there.

The Washington Times--not just for moonies anymore. Racists love it too! White men should "run, not walk" to wed "racially conscious" white women and avoid being out-bred by non-whites. Latinos are "rising to take this country away from those who made it," the "Euroamericans." Muslims are "human hyenas" who "smell blood" and are "closing in" on their "weakened prey," meaning "the white race." Blacks, Coombs sneers, are "saintly victims who can do no wrong." Black solidarity and non-white immigration are imposing "racial revolution and decomposition" in America.
