Attorney General Brnovich Files Appeal in ‘Dreamers’ Driver’s License Case

Attorney General Brnovich filed an appeal on behalf of the state last week attempting to block President Obama’s 2012 deferred-action order that allows for driver’s licenses to be provided to young undocumented immigrants. The Attorney General’s Office provided the following statement regarding the filing:

“Driving is a privilege and not a right. Attorney General believes it is up to each state, not the president, to determine who is eligible to receive a driver’s license. The Attorney General’s Office filed a notice to preserve Arizona’s right to appeal the DACA ruling in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Governor recently transferred this case to the Attorney General’s Office and it is now being reviewed to determine the best course of action.”
