Governor Reassures Foreign Industries

Governor Robert Bentley recently voiced concerns about the state’s tough crackdown on illegal immigration law possibly hurting the recruitment of foreign industries and is has been reaching out to foreign executives to let them know the state welcomes them.

The state’s immigration law is regarded as the toughest in the country. The federal courts have put parts of the law on hold, but other provisions are in effect. Concerns with the law surfaced when a German manager with Mercedes-Benz was arrested in Tuscaloosa for not having a driver’s license with him while driving a rental car. Within a week of this episode, a Honda employee from Japan was stopped under similar circumstances near Talladega. Both matters were resolved within hours, but state leaders want to readily assure businesses that Alabama is open for business both foreign and domestic.
