Yep nothing wrong with these laws. Nothing.

The takeaway here is that the law needs to be amended so that it targets brown skinned folks from south of the border, not Europeans.

Hey, at least they are consistent. I gotta wonder about the rental car with no tags. Somebody's getting an earful. LOL. Give the man a demo for chrissakes.

Soon, The State will be pure!

I wonder if it's ironic that a German was arrested and charged under this fascist law?

Thanks for the promote and tweet Charles. Alabama, as they damn well know, is killing themselves. Idiots who once again don't think through the consequences of their xenophobia.

Alabama has three foreign owned auto plants (Honda, Hyundai and Mercedes). I wonder how long they're going to stick around if visiting executives start getting thrown in jail.

If your not from around here, you might not know, Mercedes-Benz has a plant in Vance, AL and every once and awhile you'll see an odd Mercedes with manufactures tags around the Tuscaloosa - Birmingham area. It was probably one of those. Husband and I had a bet, which would be arrest first under this law, a German or a Japanese Executive, 'cause JVC also has a plant in the Tuscaloosa area.

Correction - reread article, was a rental car. You can rent a car with an international or some foreign Drivers Licences. He just didn't have his passport and visa with him when he was stopped.

Moroni Deported To Sweden: Claims He's Not From There

When I as a Canadian visit the United States (legally of course), I do not have any form of identification that is acceptable under the Alabama law.

Cop stops a car without proper plates and asks for ID. Only ID produced is a German ID card. No passport, visa, German drivers license, International drivers license or US drivers license. Officer acted in response to requirements of the law by taking the driver to a magistrate as required. Charges were resolved when proper ID was brought to the station. Seems reasonable. Try doing the same thing outside the US and see what happens there.

Bet he checks his vehicle for proper tags next time he drives and his wallet for his drivers licenses.

Strange article. It got out of control only after a white man has been arrested?
