The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals held that the section of Alabama House Bill 56 that disallowed an employer a state tax deduction for wages and compensation paid to an alien unauthorized to work in the United States was preempted by federal immigration law (United States v. Alabama, No. 11-14532 (11th Cir. 8/20/12)). Thus, Alabama was enjoined from enforcing the provision. The court also held many other of the law’s immigration provisions to also be preempted.
