Arizona expands ban on undocumented immigrant driver's licenses to include victims of domestic violence and human trafficking
Take that, Obama.
Arizona has expanded a statewide ban on giving driver's licenses to undocumented workers to include immigrants who have been granted legal status under President Obamas Deferred Action program.
Those most likely to be affected by the new policy have been spared the threat of deportation from the U.S. based on humanitarian reasons, such as domestic violence, human trafficking and sexual exploitation, the Arizona Republic reported.
The policy change was announced by the state in a court filing on Tuesday in a lawsuit brought against Arizona by the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Immigration Law Center and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

"Recipients of regular deferred action and deferred enforced departure, similar to DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), cannot demonstrate authorized presence under federal law," Andrew Wilder, Gov. Brewers spokesman, told the Republic.
Only one other state, Nebraska, has come out against offering drivers license privileges to undocumented immigrants who are covered under the deferred action program, which focuses on those who were brought to the United States before they turned 16, and who are now under the age of 31.

You’re welcome. The next favor we Arizonans can do for the country is to retire John McLame and his buddy Jeff Flake ( who turned into one)
We will make our own burritos or our LEGAL Mexicans will do it.

There is no magic to making a burrito.
