ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) -- Some of Alabama's doctors are angered about a new mandate requiring them to provide the government with proof that they are legal U.S. residents.
The Alabama Board of Medical Examiners sent out a letter May 16 to about 16,000 doctors who hold medical licenses in Alabama. The letter told them they had until the end of May to submit proof of legal residency.
The Anniston Star reports (http://bit.ly/17xFL2M) that the letter is the latest step in the implementation of Alabama's 2011 immigration law, considered one of the toughest in the nation.
Larry Dixon, director of the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners, said the agency is getting calls from physicians -- and many of them are irritated.
"We're getting our fannies chewed about it every day," Dixon said.
