Arizona defends denying driver’s licenses to ‘Dreamers,’ faces skeptical judge

Arizona’s legal team came to Pasadena on Thursday to defend the state’s refusal to issue driver’s licenses to so-called Dreamers, and found that one member of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was in no mood for legal maneuvering.

Under court order, Arizona began issuing licenses and ID cards in February for the estimated 22,000 immigrants covered by the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA. President Obama’s program gives Dreamers, the young immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally before their 16th birthday and who meet other requirements, a reprieve from deportation and the ability to receive work permits.

Arizona has incurred no ill effects because of the new, legal Dreamer drivers, said Judge Harry Pregerson.

    It boils down to whether states have the right to or the federal Obama has he right to decide who gets benefits from state funding. Drivers licenses included within the state borders. Our constitution does not give the feds those rights so it must be left to the states and the people. This JC judge is just as big an idiot as Carter ever was. Oh Carter was a nice guy, just in well over his head. Peanut Head that is, appointing peanut-heads to court benches.

    Arizona just needs to ship them to California! Just get rid of them!

  • Terry Rushing says:

    To begin with, driving is not a right, it is a privilege. The granting of the privilege to operate a motor vehicle on public roadways is something granted by states, not the federal government. With these thoughts in mind, it would appear that the ignorant “honorable” over stepped (a seemingly common occurrence in the federal judiciary) and himself violated the states sovereignty as well as ignoring the tenth amendment which relates to unfunded mandates. Because the possession of a driver license is a huge step to being accepted as a citizen, states issuing driver licenses or ID’s should note, in clear sight, on the document, that the holder is a non citizen.

      I wonder how many of them have to take the drivers test. Written and driving (sober hopefully).
