This American Life explores the unintended consequences of Alabama’s immigration law

This week’s edition of WBEZ Chicago’s “This American Life” takes a look at Alabama’s immigration law. Listen in as they bring you stories of people affected by the legislation – and hear about what lawmakers are trying to do to untangle the unintended consequences of their actions.

“Alabama’s new immigration law aims to make life so difficult for illegal immigrants that they will “self-deport.” And in a way it’s working. Immigrants are fleeing Alabama…but not just the illegal ones. And now some lawmakers are scrambling to reform the law they voted for. This and other stories of people living with the unintended consequences of their decisions.”
