Jay Reeves of AP helps chicken processors with their illegal labor needs (Alabama, twister, immigration) - 05/28/13
If Jay Reeves of the Associated Press isn't getting paid off by chicken processors like Tyson Foods and Pilgrims Pride, he should be. Reeves offers "Twister Heals Ala. Town Fractured Over Immigration" . The article seems to have two purposes:
The following are all of the excerpts in the GOP 2012 platform that mention immigration. The entire text is available here: scribd.com/doc/104097929/Final-Language-GOP-Platform-2012
Reuters says, "[r]ed states give more money to charity than blue states, according to a new study" (link, ). Just one problem: that's not true. In fact, blue states gave over twice as much in dollar terms than red (depending on the blue/red definition).
To help you answer the titular question, take a look at the following quote from Mary Bauer of the Southern Poverty Law Center (link):
Wade Henderson, UAW, SPLC join to harm Alabama over immigration law (LCCHR, Cindy Estrada, Mary Bauer) - 06/01/12
Yesterday, two self-styled civil rights groups and a union held a conference call to announce actions they'll be taking against Alabama's new immigration law (HB 56). Their actions will include "escalating pressure on top companies operating in Alabama" and taking actions "through international tribunals" .
DHS gives in to Luis Gutierrez demand to halt a deportation; Gutierrez keeps promoting bad policy - 01/04/12
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois) recently attempted to block the deportation of an illegal alien who'd been put in deportation proceedings, and the Department of Homeland Security gave in.
Alabama lawsuit plaintiff worried immigration law will cut into her business of renting to illegal aliens - 08/26/11
As previously discussed, the Department of Justice, various far-left illegal immigration-supporting groups, the Mexican government and other governments are all involved in the same lawsuit against Alabama over that state's new immigration law.
Mexico, 15 other countries file brief against Alabama immigration law; Mexico/DOJ/ACLU/SPLC/churches all on same side - 08/05/11
The Mexican government and 15 other countries  have filed a brief supporting those suing Alabama to block that state's new immigration law.
Yesterday the Department of Justice sued Alabama over that state's new anti-illegal immigration law, just as it sued Arizona over the law that Alabama's was modeled after.
Matt Webster of Alabama: used by far-left to support illegal immigration (ACLU, SPLC lawsuit) - 07/09/11
A series of far-left groups recently sued Georgia over that state's new anti-illegal immigration law, and they engaged in a cute trick: they found a Republican shill to support their suit. The shill in that case is Uvalda, Georgia mayor Paul Bridges (CNN guest editorial from him: link).
Just as they have in other states, a coalition of far-left groups have sued Alabama over that state's new Arizona-style immigration law.
The Los Angeles Times offers the misleading editorial "Alabama targets immigrant students" , which contains at least three (and probably many more) highly misleading statements: 1. The Alabama law isn't designed to go after "immigrants" as the editorial's title says. It's only concerned with illegal aliens.
Alabama recently passed a tough immigration law modeled after the one in Arizona. One of the misleading claims made by opponents of the law is that it would make it illegal to give an illegal alien a ride.
From this: States have the authority to enforce immigration laws and protect their borders, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said Wednesday in a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona's immigration law. Cox, one of five Republicans running for Michigan governor, said Michigan is the lead state backing Arizona in federal court and is joined by Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Northern Mariana Islands... "By lawsuit, rather than by legislation, the federal government seeks to negate this preexisting...

Max Blumenthal - aka "Son of Sid" - was interviewed by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! about the "anti-immigrant" movement with predictable results:

California's schools used to be at the top of the nation, now, according to one ranking, we're between Alabama and Mississippi. This is largely, if not exclusively, due to "liberalism" (think Jackie Goldberg) as well as ethnically-compromised politicians who support illegal immigration (think Antonio Villaraigosa). Via a comment from 'eh', Dan Walters offers "Dry statistical report portends immense tragedy in the making": ...Extrapolating from the two sets of data, the exit exam could push graduation rates for African American and Latino youngsters down to a third of those who begin the...
