    U.S. Supreme Court rejects Arizona challenge to 'Dreamers' license program

    U.S. Supreme Court rejects Arizona challenge to 'Dreamers' program

    Andrew Chung
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday required Arizona to continue to issue driverís licenses to the so-called Dreamers immigrants and refused to hear the stateís challenge to an Obama-era program that protects hundreds of thousands of young adults brought into the country illegally as children.

    The case centered on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created in 2012 under Democratic former President Barack Obama that Republican President Donald Trump already has sought to rescind. Those who signed up for DACA are shielded from deportation and given work permits.

    The high court refused to hear Republican-governed Arizonaís appeal of a lower court ruling that barred the state from denying driverís licenses to people protected under DACA.

    ďArizonaís inexplicable attempt to deny driverís licenses to Dreamers, pursued by two governors for years, has now failed at every level of the federal judiciary,Ē said Jennifer Chang Newell, an attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union, which represented the immigrants in the case.

    The justices on Feb. 26 required the Trump administration to keep DACA in place at least for now, turning away its appeal of a judgeís nationwide injunction that halted the presidentís September order to begin winding down the program in March. A second federal judge has since issued a similar injunction.

    After DACA was put in place under Obama, Arizonaís governor at the time, Republican Jan Brewer, directed state officials to prevent the programís recipients from obtaining a driverís license in the state.
    Non-citizens must prove they are authorized to be in the United States to obtain an Arizona driverís license, such as with a valid federal work permit. The state decided not to accept permits obtained by DACA recipients.

    The ACLU sued on behalf of a group of DACA recipients who were denied driverís licenses. Arizona was the only state to deny licenses to DACA recipients, according to court papers.

    The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year struck down the Arizona policy, ruling that the state cannot develop its own definition of immigrants who are authorized to be in the United States and that only the federal government had that power.

    Arizona appealed to the Supreme Court, saying the 9th Circuitís decision ran roughshod over state sovereignty. Arizona said DACA was enacted through a Department of Homeland Security memo, not legislation in the U.S. Congress or a formal agency rule-making process, and could not supersede state law regulating driverís licenses.

    The Trump administration urged the justices not to take the case, saying the presidentís move to rescind the policy means the stateís concerns have already been addressed.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Here we go again. The whole DACA thing is illegal and unconstitutional and the Supreme Court thinks that laws enacted to make corrections for an illegal executive action are the things that are illegal. We need a massive removal from the bench of judges across the country. These judges are not impartial arbitrators of justice. They are a bunch of political hacks using the perversion of law to rule as dictators. START A MASSIVE REMOVAL OF JUDGES FROM THE COURTS.

    I have just about lost all respect for the Congress the Courts and the whole rotten, stinking putrid system of privileged elites, like Hillary Clinton who can do what the hell ever they want. They are never punished or brought to justice for serious crimes, while we peasants better not try to run from a cop for a traffic violation without all hell coming down on us.
