March Planned Against Alabama Immigration Law

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Opponents of Alabama's tough new law against illegal immigration are planning an interfaith protest march in downtown Birmingham.

Faith-based groups said Tuesday they're organizing the demonstration for Saturday to protest the law, which they call unjust.

Some church leaders say the law violates Christian principles, and many are worried about whether the law's provisions against knowingly assisting illegal immigrants will prevent churches from reaching out to people who could be in the country illegally.

The march will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Birmingham's Linn Park. Sponsors include church and social justice groups.
