American Scene: Group files U.N. complaint on state’s immigration law
Question of the Day
MONTGOMERY — An alliance of union and civil rights groups opposed to Alabama’s toughest-in-the-nation immigration law has filed a complaint with the United Nations' International Labor Organization.
The complaint Monday alleges that Alabama law violates international norms. It says the law and the U.S. government’s inability to come up with a national immigration policy hurts workers and trade unions.
The law prevents people from knowingly transporting illegal immigrants and prohibits courts from upholding contracts made with them. The complaint alleges that those provisions jeopardize the ability of workers to form and join trade unions.
The labor and Hispanic rights groups are also traveling overseas to shareholder meetings of automakers with Alabama plants. They visited Hyundai’s shareholder meeting in February and plan on attending Daimler’s on Wednesday in Germany.
Teams set record for longest kickball game
NAUGATUCK — A friendly game of kickball in Connecticut ended after 345 innings with a score of 164-117 and a Guinness world record.
Two teams in Naugatuck raising money for cancer research began playing Friday morning and finally stopped Sunday after 54 hours. That broke the Guinness record for the longest kickball marathon of 51 hours set in May of last year by students at Padua Franciscan High School in Parma, Ohio, whose game ended with a score of 431-306 after 474 innings.
The Republican-American of Waterbury reported that the Connecticut game was played in honor of two local children who survived cancer and raised more than $45,000 for cancer research.
There were 21 people on each team, and players came from as far away as Atlanta and New Hampshire.
