Law's mobile home requirement date pushed back

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A deal has been reached outside the courtroom regarding the recent temporary restraining order placed on a section of Alabama's immigration law that dealt with providing proof of citizenship to register a mobile home.

Attorney's from Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange's office who are representing the Department of Revenue met with attorneys from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) with whom they worked out the deal.

Under the new agreement, the deadline to renew the registration tag on mobile homes in Alabama has been pushed back to the end of the month, December 31.

During that time, no official should ask anyone seeking to renew their home's registration to provide proof of citizenship.

This is the waiting period both sides agreed upon because the temporary restraining order on the provision was set to expire on December 7.

Attorneys for both sides said they were happy with the agreement, primarily because they didn't have to argue in open court.
