  • On October 29, 2013, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) published a settlement agreement reached with the State of Alabama to end its challenge of HB 56, Alabama’s immigration law in exchange for a court order permanently enjoining several provisions of the law. The SPLC represents a group of plaintiffs known as the “HICA plaintiffs,” which was also represented by the ACLU, the National Immigration Law Center, and several Alabama attorneys.
