BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Alabama’s new immigration law is affecting mobile home owners who aren’t legal U.S. residents.
The Birmingham News reports under the law, the owners won’t be able to renew their registrations, meaning they’ll have to move their homes out of state, sell them, or risk getting caught without the required decals. Registrations are due for renewal by Nov. 30, and property tax decals are due by the end of the year. Under Section 30 of the law, neither the state nor any of its “political subdivisions” can engage in a business transaction with anyone unless their legal presence is verified. Federal courts have blocked the implementation of parts of the law, but Section 30 is in effect.
