Arizona loses immigration driver’s license dispute in appeals court ruling.
So, Governor Jan Brewer, get a little taste of what real working women in this country must go through because of your Republican Supreme court judges?
She pointed out Monday that the judges who ruled against her were appointed by Democratic presidents
Arizona was one of two states that refused to issue licenses to the immigrants, sparking the latest court fight over the issue.
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer called the ruling misguided and said she was considering appeal.
The decision follows other high-profile battles between Arizona and the federal government over immigration, including court decisions that struck down much of a 2010 enforcement law but upheld its most hotly debated section, which requires police to check immigration status under certain circumstances.
The ruling comes during a national focus on the topic as tens of thousands of immigrants from Central America — many unaccompanied children — have illegally entered the country in recent months, straining the capacity of detention centers along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer issued an executive order in August 2012 directing state agencies to deny driver’s licenses and other public benefits to young immigrants who get work authorization under the program.
She pointed out Monday that the judges who ruled against her were appointed by Democratic presidents. She blames Obama’s policy for the recent influx of immigrants entering the country illegally and notes that the program isn’t federal law. “Lawless decrees by the president demonstrate animus to Congress, states and the Constitution,” Brewer said.
