Hispanic students leave Alabama schools

Many undocumented pupils stay away from school after court ruling upholds tough new immigration laws.


    Many Hispanic students have started to leave schools in the US state of Alabama after a court ruling that upheld the state's tough new immigration laws.

    The laws require new pupils to provide birth certificates when registering. However, many students who were born in the US remain undocumented.

    Now, some Hispanic families have started leaving the state, despite assurances that children will not be denied an education.
