State sued over withholding driver's licenses from illegal immigrants
PHOENIX — Calling the governor’s actions illegal, civil rights groups filed suit Thursday to overturn an order by Gov. Jan Brewer denying Arizona driver licenses to illegal immigrants who qualify for the federal government’s “deferred action” program.
Attorneys contend the Obama administration, in agreeing not to deport certain people brought here as children, specifically “authorized” them to be in this country. Those eligible also are being issued permits to work legally in the United States.
