Excerpt from TuscaloosaNews.com: TUSCALOOSA | On Wednesday morning, Dorothy McDade called a Hispanic immigrant she hadn’t seen for a while to see how he was doing.
The immigrant answered and said he had moved to Texas, said McDade, who works in the Hispanic ministry at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. The man is among a growing number of Hispanics leaving Alabama.
Some Hispanics left after the April 27 tornado rendered them homeless. But a potentially larger exodus of Hispanics began after the Alabama Legislature passed a law in June that bans hiring people who are in the country illegally.
