A Montana judge has ruled that enactment of the state’s 2012 voter-approved law banning undocumented immigrants from accessing state services is pre-empted by federal law and is unenforceable. The law, which aims to deny government jobs and assistance to people in the U.S. illegally, required certain state agencies to certify through a federal database that those requesting services were United States citizens. If a person was not in the country legally, the Montana agency must turn over the name to federal immigration officials.
