Honda associate issued a Citation for Violating Alabama Immigration Law
It looks like Alabama is fighting World War II all over again. Last week a German Mercedes-Benz executive was detained for violating Alabama's immigration law, and now this week a Japanese Honda associate has been cited.
The Alabama law requires police officers to detain individuals that are unable to prove that they are in the United States legally. Papers, Please.
The charges against Detlev Hager from Mercedes have now been dropped. I wonder if the unnamed Honda associate will be as lucky.
Reuters reports that Honda has invested $1.4 billion in the State of Alabama, producing 300,000 vehicles per year, and employs 4,000 people. And yes, that was billion with a B.
Take note Honda: Alabama wants your $1.4 billion, just not your foreign nationals.
