Burr Alert: Settlement of HB 56 Lawsuit means permanent injunction against some provisions of Alabama's Immigration Law

Articles / Publications

The SPLC represents a group of plaintiffs known as the "HICA plaintiffs," which was also represented by the ACLU, the National Immigration Law Center, and several Alabama attorneys. The settlement documents show that the agreement will permanently dispose of the following provisions of the immigration law:

  • Section 10, which criminalizes failure to register as an immigrant;
  • Section 11(a), which criminalizes the solicitation of employment or of work as an independent contractor by an undocumented immigrant;
  • Sections 11(f) and 11(g), which criminalize offering rides to undocumented immigrants for the purpose of procuring employment services;
  • Section 13, which is the provision criminalizing efforts to conceal, harbor, or shield an undocumented immigrant and includes entering lease agreements as one of those efforts;
  • Section 27, which voided contracts knowingly entered with undocumented immigrants; and
  • Section 28, which required the public school system to collect information about the immigration status of students.
