Skip to comments.Brewer’s immigrant driver’s license policy blocked [9th Circus: you WILL issue to illegals]
Posted on 07/08/2014 5:10:03 AM PDT by markomalley
Reyna Montoya is one of nearly 19,000 young immigrants in Arizona who have been allowed to stay in the U.S. under the Obama administration's deferred action policy, but the benefits of the program in the state have been limited.
As Montoya applies for teaching jobs, she considers herself competitively disadvantaged because Arizona hasn't allowed her to get a driver's license as the federal policy allows.
She was among those cheering a decision by a federal appeals court that on Monday ruled the state cannot deny driver's licenses to immigrants in the program. The three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals suggested the policy was intended to express hostility toward the young immigrants, in part because of the deferred action policy.
"We are celebrating now, but we are going to have to continue to organize," Montoya said, noting that it's not the only example of difficulties she and others face.
Montoya said her counterparts in Arizona often struggle to pay for college, because the state requires those receiving deferred action assistance to pay out-of-state tuition, which is more expensive.

How about a license to drive back across the border?
Toward the young immigrants?
What Immigrants? These are foreign nationals who are in the U.S. illegally.
What ever happened to States Rights?
When you think* about it like a ‘progressive’ does, it makes perfect sense.
According to them, the Constitution not only permits rewarding unlawful behavior, it actually requires that the government reward unlawful behavior.
*Yes, I realize that I’ve just contradicted myself. Progressives don’t actually ‘think’, they only pretend to do it.
As Montoya applies for teaching jobs ”
what does she teach? How to play the system?
It’s not a law, it was a “decree”. She doesn’t have to enforce it.
Hell 0bama picks and chooses what to enforce - what makes him think we won’t do the same?
E-verify isn't a factor? Or does it only apply to the private sector?
Isn't that a dictatorship with a Judicial system to protect its decisions? It sure isn't a democracy or a republic.
I know that Rush sang 'if you decide not to choose you still have made a choice' but like most so-called policies of the Obama administration this 'deferred action' is simply inaction.
It should have a stamp across the face of it that says “illegal” or “Dreamer”
Let's all try that one next April 15th and refuse to file. When we are hauled in front of a judge, we ought to cite THAT, and plead that WE don't have to obey the laws EITHER!!
She needs to tell ‘em to pound sand.
I agree. I wouldn’t do it if I were her.
Driving is a privilege extended by the states, not the federal government. IMO, just tell the court to pound salt. Make Holdout file for enforcement and battle the matter to the SC.
Whatever, just do what the left does, IGNORE the order.
Now illegals who Obama give executive order amnesty to have a constitutional right to a state issued drivers license in AZ,......
There was a time when there would be outrage in this country over this judges order.....
but they got away with making a new right to same sex marriage forcing it on states....
No wonder illegals are flocking here.
I don’t hear GOP on this, where’s Bush on this, Paul, Christie. Rubio, McCain, Bohner ?

The 9th circus is full of crap!
First off, Owebama’s illegal ‘executive action’ carries no weight beyond depts of federal government that he has direct control over. It isn’t a law created by congress.
The Feds have no power to force a state to do anything, much less issue drivers licenses.
If I was Brewer I would tell the 9th circus to issue the illegals a federal drivers license, or go pound sand.
Acts of Love require no response. /s
I don’t need a local drivers license to visit any country in the world.
I DO need a visa to visit most of them them.
Only in the USA do visitors get special rights not even given to its own people.
Obama decrees from on high and everyone must bow to his will. /disgust
When Jeb Bush says stupid stuff like this he sounds as condescending and arrogant as Obama does.
Recently Bushie Nicole Wallace said on the Morning Joe that Jeb is a strong enough GOP candidate to get the GOP to go along with 'immigration reform'.
States rights ended w Lincoln.
Yes. I’m OK with driver’s licenses being issued to illegal immigrants, as long as they are only valid in the southbound lanes.
Gov. Brewer, send YOUR state troopers to all DMV centers and close them until further notice. It’s your state. Then mobilize YOUR National Guard to the southern border.
How the heck does this administration keep getting in the way of any state soverign issues.
Liberals will finally want to secure the border when their goal of tyranny is accomplished and they need to prevent hard-working taxpayers from fleeing the country.
