Montana Governor Greg Gianforte (R) signed a bill to ban sanctuary cities throughout the state. On Wednesday, Gianforte signed the bill, which will require Montana cities to comply with federal immigration laws. This is a move that supporters have said will prevent large amounts of criminal activity.

The bill will empower the state’s attorney general to pursue legal action against jurisdictions that do not comply with the legislation, including fines and withholding state funds from those cities. While there aren’t any sanctuary cities in Montana yet, opponents have asserted the bill will promote a greater divide between minority communities and law enforcement.
