440.03 Annotation Notwithstanding the absence of any state statute limiting eligibility for professional licenses or credentials to persons who are in the country legally, federal law is controlling so that the Department of Regulation and Licensing is prohibited from granting any professional license or credential to an alien who is present in the United States illegally. Because the department is prohibited from issuing professional licenses or credentials to illegal aliens, the department must put in place some procedure practicably designed to reasonably insure that it does not issue licenses or credentials in violation of federal law.
