A: If you are a lawful permanent resident, authorized to work, or a U.S. Citizen, then the answer is likely no. The challenge is that you must contact an attorney, who handles civil rights matters in Alabama to discuss the violation of your civil rights based upon the legal decisions in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Many States have begun to ignore the Civil Rights Act of 1964, while the Federal Government lacks the resources from Congress to enforce the Act.

The local or regional office of the ACLU may prove helpful or may be interested in representing you. Here is a link, so that you can contact that office. Don't give up!
