A federal appeals court ruled Monday that young adult illegal immigrants whom President Obama has given tentative permission to be in the country so-called dreamers are also entitled to drivers licenses and ordered Arizona to issue them.
The ruling comes while the government is debating policy about a new wave of illegal immigrant children who are surging across the border in Texas, overwhelming federal authorities ability to handle them.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer blasted the courts ruling, saying it could end up meaning her state would have to grant drivers licenses to some of those in the latest wave of illegal immigrants if Mr. Obama finds ways to avoid deporting them too.
But immigrant-rights advocates hailed the decision, saying it is a major step in helping the Dreamers, who were brought to the U.S. as minors by their parents, move toward some sort of normal life in the U.S.
This is a huge victory for the young immigrants who want nothing more than to make meaningful contributions to communities in their home state of Arizona, said Alessandra Soler, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona.

If Congress (John Boehner) won't introduce articles of impeachment against Obama and soon, then it's up to the good, patriotic citizens of this country to take matters into our own hands and take our country back from the tyrants in DC.
There really is nothing more than can be done or said at this point. The bastards are provoking us to action and it's high time they were on the receiving end!
as an immigrant I had a DL..
These are illegal aliens..
Thus making Arizona licenses unusable for TSA screening?
These liberal judges have their minds made up even before they read the briefs.
Now they can vote and 1. turn America into a leftwing cesspool and 2. turn America into a place where Al Queda can terrorize
How can a federal judge in S.F. order a state motor vehicle department to issue anything? How can they force a state to do that? Send US Marshalls to the drivers license offices?
aren’t they a bit young for driving ?
I have to RENEW my driver license that I have had for 38 years in Florida.
I am required by Florida law to show:
1. My government-issued birth certificate or valid U.S. passport, or naturalization papers.
2. My social security card, or w-2 form, or paycheck, or SSA-1099 or non-SSA-1099 showing complete social security number. NO copies accepted.
3. If name changed from birth: any court ordered or government issued marriage/divorce certificate that link birth to current name. (not required with a valid U.S.Passport)
4. Two documents showing my residential address.
WHAT DO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HAVE TO SHOW?
Back in 1994, California voted for proposition 187, it passed 58.93% to 41.07%.
Proposition 187 included the following key elements:
All law enforcement agents who suspect that a person who has been arrested is in violation of immigration laws must investigate the detainee’s immigration status, and if they find evidence of illegality they must report it to the attorney general of California, and to the federal Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). They must also notify the detainee of his or her apparent status as an alien.
Local governments are prohibited from preventing or limiting the fulfillment of this requirement.
If government agents suspect anyone applying for benefits of being illegal immigrants, the agents must report their suspicions in writing to the appropriate enforcement authorities.
A person shall not receive any public social services until he or she has been verified as a United States citizen or as a lawfully admitted alien.
A person shall not receive any health care services from a publicly funded health care facility until he or she meets the requirements above.
A public elementary or secondary school shall not admit or permit the attendance of any child until he or she meets the requirements above.
By 1996, each school district shall verify the legal status of each child enrolled within the district and the legal status of each parent or guardian of each child.
A child who is in violation of the requirements above shall not continue to attend the school 90 days from the date of notice to the attorney general and INS.
The attorney general must keep records on all such cases and make them available to any other government entity that wishes to inspect them.
The manufacture, distribution, sale, or use of false citizenship or residency documents is a state felony punishable by imprisonment or fine.
Judge Mariana Pfaelzer overturned the majority of the law. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariana_Pfaelzer
Hey idiot attorney in a robe: an Executive decree does not trump STATE LAW. Get a clue!
Arizona should simply refuse.
The last time I checked my version of the Constitution, CONGRESS has the Duty and Responsibility to IMPEACH all these Judges who directly Violate their Oath in their rulings. Where the F=-$ is CONGRESS Mr Speaker.
Another unconstitutional power grab/EO and end-run around Congress by Obama, Durbin and their GOP-e sycophants.
Impeach this b*****d!
Hey America, your leaders are telling you that your Vote Sucks, You Suck,
and illegal Alien invaders are better than you! IDIOTS!
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Hey 9th Circuit, tell the Dreamers they gotta get insurance, too!
Where does a federal court get the standing to rule that a state must issue drivers licenses? Drivers licenses are strictly issued at the discretion of the states.
he’s posting some tough sounding posts on Facebook...
Not sure what he is up to on tweeter...
You actually want him to do something?
He can cry on demand for you.
other than that he is at best a lost cause, at worst, he’s working for the other side.
The Feral “judges” are at it again.
I haven’t read comments here, yet, but I want to give mine.
Driver licenses are issued as a privilege by States, if the applicants can meet certain prerequisites like written and actual driving tests. Most States also require a driver to have proof of liability insurance.
In Texas, if someone cancels their liability insurance, the Insurer sends notice to the State Dept. of Motor Vehicles and a warrant is issued for the driver. How many have been killed or maimed by DUI illegals with no license and no liability insurance?
The privilege of having a driver license is in the purvue of the States; not the Federal government/judicial system.
Thus making Arizona licenses unusable for TSA screening?
And as a photo ID for voting!!
If some States like AZ are eventually forced to give DLs to illegals, the licenses should have a broad diagonal strip across a portion of the photo and the length of the license indicating the individual is a foreign citizen (thus unable to vote).
I’m in Texas. My DL was due to expire 22 Aug 2014. I received a card from the Dept. of Public Safety in April advising me I could renew online up to 6 months early.
On 4 May, I renewed and paid the $25 fee via plastic. I received my new card a week later in the mail. I’m now good until August 2020. Hope I live to renew again (I’m almost 72)!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
They aren’t entitled to a damn thing. They are here illegally and need to be sent home or arrested.
