A Jan. 23 CNSNews.com article by Bill Hobbs carries the headline "Alabama's Unemployment Rate Plummets In Wake Of Tougher Illegal Immigration Laws."
Just one problem: Despite Hobbs' repeated suggestion that there is an "intriguing possibility" that the Draconian law is causing Alabama's unemployment rate to decline faster than surrounding states, there's no actual evidence to back it up.
In fact, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, who supports the immigration law, says there's no evidence to support any effect the law has had on the unemployment rate. Hobbs also ignores the fact that one documented factor in the lower unemployment rate is that the labor force has declined at a faster rate than jobs have been created.
