Supreme Court Rejects Arizona on Driver’s Licenses

“The U.S. Supreme Court refused to let Arizona deny driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants who are protected from deportation under a program started by President Obama,” Bloomberg reports.

“For the second time in recent weeks, the justices steered clear of a fight over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy. In late February the court said it wouldn’t immediately consider President Trump’s bid to rescind the program, which shields 700,000 young immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as minors.”

“The latest rejection comes in a clash that dates back to 2012, when Obama announced the program and Arizona’s then-governor, Jan Brewer, quickly moved to block beneficiaries from qualifying for a driver’s license.”
