    Alabama Senate rejects move to repeal immigration law

    Alabama Senate rejects move to repeal immigration law

    MONTGOMERY The Alabama Senate has rejected an effort to repeal the state's tough new immigration bill.
    The Senate voted 20-14 Wednesday to turn down a motion to repeal the immigration law.
    The motion was made by Democratic Sen. Billy Beasley of Clayton who has introduced a bill seeking the law's repeal. The repeal vote came during debate of a bill to make changes in the immigration law. Beasley introduced the repeal motion as a substitute to the bill making changes.
    During the debate, Beasley said the immigration law has brought new government regulations to the state and caused unintended consequences like the arrests of two foreign car company officials.
    Immigration law supporter Republican Sen. Scott Beason of Gardendale called the arguments in favor of repeal "rhetoric not based in reality."
