Alabama's tough immigration laws

The US state of Alabama has passed some of the most stringent immigration laws in the country.

The legislation, which comes into effect from September, requires schools to find out if students are there illegally.

It will also be a crime to harbour or give a lift to someone who is known to be in the country illegally.

Andy Gallacher reports from Albertville, Alabama.
