Where Are the Auto Companies?

The State of Alabama is once again in the headlines because of its anti-immigration policy.

This is troubling for obvious reasons because any person who is not an American citizen now has a target on them.  Now, companies like Daimler AG, Honda and Hyundai are now being called to take a stance. By remaining out of the conversation, these companies are advocating support for a racist and draconian law.
