Ala. attorney general tapped for leadership post

A 2010 file photo provided by the Strange campaign shows Alabama Attorney Gen. Luther Strange. Strange is recommending that the Legislature repeal some portions of the state's tough new immigration law that have been put on hold by federal courts and clarify some others. In a letter Dec. 1, 2011 to legislative leaders, Attorney General Luther Strange recommended repealing a section that makes it a crime for an illegal immigrant to fail to carry registration documents. He also suggested repealing the requirement that public schools collect information on the immigration status of students. He said both sections have been put on hold temporarily by federal courts. Strange said the proposed changes would help law enforcement and remove burdens on law-abiding citizens. (AP Photo/Strange campaign, File)
