License Ban for Immigrants Court-Bound

Legal experts say they expect a court challenge to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s order denying driver’s licenses and public benefits to young undocumented immigrants who qualify to stay in the U.S. under a new Obama administration program.

Brewer on Wednesday signed an executive order reiterating that state agencies are required to deny licenses and other taxpayer-funded pubic benefits to “unlawfully present aliens.” That includes those undocumented immigrants who are approved to stay and work in the U.S. for another two years under the federal government’s new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
