NBC’s Rock Center on the “Huge Controversy” in Alabama Caused by HB 56

Last night, on NBC’s “Rock Center With Brian Williams,” reporter Kate Snow did a segment on what Williams called the “huge controversy” in Alabama caused by the passage of HB 56. 

Snow’s report showed the dire impacts of HB 56 on Alabama’s Latino families and the state’s farmers.

In his national interview, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley defended the law from criticisms from farmers. Bentley told Snow that he doesn’t want to be “the face of an anti-immigrant sentiment,” though it might be a little too late for that. FYI: He also wanted us to know that he’s not a racist. 

This is definitely worth watching.
