Birmingham Mayor William Bell told Democratic members of Congress holding a hearing on Alabama’s new Immigration law that the legislation smacks of apartheid and Jim Crow laws. Bell told the lawmakers at an ad hoc hearing on Monday that the law passed this year by Alabama’s Republican-controlled legislature places financial burdens on cities and could force police officers to employ racial profiling.
