    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Virginia Congressman Dave Brat made international headlines in 2014 when he defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the Republican primary. On Friday, Brat came to the Yellowhammer State to highlight his teamwork with some of Alabama’s most conservative members of Congress.... One of the issues that separated Brat and Cantor the most during the campaign was immigration. Cantor was an outspoken supporter of the Senate’s Gang of 8 bill, which was reviled by immigration hawks. Though the bill was ultimately unsuccessful, his constituents’ displeasure with it resonated strongly at the ballot box the following November. Brat...

    Front-runner Donald Trump has surged to a nearly 40 percent lead in the latest Alabama Republican primary poll. From Aug. 29 – Sep. 1, Gravis Marketing asked 1,616 participants, “assuming you had to vote today, which 2016 GOP Candidate would you vote for?” Trump garnered an astonishing 38 percent, effectively matching the percentage received by the other candidates combined (38.8). In the last Alabama poll, Trump was supported by 30 percent of voters, and the real estate mogul’s eight point boost could possibly be attributed to his recent trip to Mobile (38.8). Ben Carson is the only other candidate to...

It accuses Bentley of violating a federal law that they said requires Medicaid patients to have their choice of provider to receive family planning care. “We’re in court today because each and every patient, and her ability to make her own deeply personal and private health care decisions,...

    MOBILE, Ala. — It was immigration, not segregation, that brought some 20,000 southerners — far fewer than predicted — out for Donald Trump on Friday night, but the ghost of George Wallace loomed large. Wallace, an avowed segregationist, was the last presidential candidate to win electoral votes as a third-party candidate. The threat of Trump doing so, propelled by a hardline immigration stance that many have condemned as racist, looms over the Republican Party now as it did over the Democratic Party then, even as the enthusiasm of his following, for once, fell far short of expectations. Wallace carried five...

According to this political calculus, the crucial moment arrives three days later, on March 1st, with the “SEC primary”—the belt of Southern states that encompass the Southeastern Athletic Conference—when Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Arkansas and several others hold their primaries.

These states are New Hampshire, Utah, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Alabama. Thirteen states have...

    Donald Trump's campaign stop in Mobile could prompt a venue change as more people have registered for tickets online than what the Civic Center's Theater can hold, a SMG official said Wednesday. Bob Brazier, general manager of the Mobile Civic Center and the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center, said "it appears" the attendance during Trump rally "will outgrow" the theater's 1,950 capacity. "We're looking at everything right now," Brazier said about a rally originally scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday inside the theater. "We're preparing like we might have to move it." The move likely won't be far. Brazier said...

    Responding to shock videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, government officials in Louisiana, New Hampshire and Alabama (and, most recently, Arkansas) have moved to defund Planned Parenthood. Now the White House has entered the fray, warning these states that defunding may break the law. Through a network of affiliated clinics, Planned Parenthood provides health care services to millions of women across the country, especially low-income and young women who have few options for care.

    Alabama senator Jeff Sessions, a Republican, released a statement Sunday praising the immigration proposal from presidential candidate Donald Trump. ""This is exactly the plan America needs," said Sessions. "Not only would the plan outlined in this paper work, but more quickly than many realize. Most importantly, this plan reestablishes the principle that American's immigration laws should serve the interests of its own citizens. For too long, 'immigration reform' plans in Washington have served the special interests at the expense of working Americans." Sessions goes on to say that Trump's plan puts "working Americans foremost" and puts an emphasis on lifting...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the intellectual leader of the conservative movement and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, issued a statement on Sunday afternoon praising 2016 Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s immigration policy plan for America. “This is exactly the plan America needs,” Sessions said in response to Trump’s plan. “Not only would the plan outlined in this paper work, but more quickly than many realize. “Most importantly, this plan reestablishes the principle that American’s immigration laws should serve the interests of its own citizens.

    Was there anyone with two working brain cells to rub together who was really surprised by this story? A police detective in Alabama pulls over a motorist who is driving in an erratic fashion, calls for backup and suddenly sees the driver exiting the vehicle and coming toward him in an aggressive fashion. Under normal circumstances, the detective should have used whichever level of force (or threat thereof) was required to get the driver back in the vehicle until his backup arrived. But instead, this happens. The two end up in a parking lot when the detective calls for...

Heath Boackle told the NY Daily News. The Daily News reported: “The Birmingham detective, whose name has not yet been released, paused while a suspect attacked him during a traffic stop because he feared the country-wide backlash he...

    A Birmingham, Alabama, police detective who was pistol-whipped unconscious said Friday that he hesitated to use force because he didn't want to be accused of needlessly killing an unarmed man. "A lot of officers are being too cautious because of what's going on in the media," said the officer, who asked to remain anonymous for the safety of his family. "I hesitated because I didn't want to be in the media like I am right now." Details of last week's incident in the Birmingham enclave of Roebuck remain sketchy -- such as how did the suspect get the officer's weapon...
