The Albertville City Council passed a resolution Monday targeting contractors who employ "unauthorized aliens."

The move comes just one month after the new mayor and council took office, signaling a more serious tone regarding illegal immigration.

"That should be a pretty good indication we're serious about that hot topic from the campaign," said Councilman Chuck Ellis.

"You talk to everybody on the campaign trail and that was the one thing everyone wanted to talk about ... the effects of illegal immigration on the community."
