Cash on costs

Brian Cash can put a figure to the cost of Alabama's new immigration law: at least $100,000.

And behind this frivolous post, the harsh social and economic facts: in Alabama, formerly the heartland of white supremacy, the administration is trying to get rid of thousands of Hispanic workers and their families. It seems old habits die hard, or not at all. However, as Brian Cash's disappearing workers and rotting tomatoes show, the local economy depends on the immigrants. The US government is challenging the law.
