Attorney General Mark Brnovich is making a last-ditch effort to let Gov. Doug Ducey deny driver’s licenses to “dreamers.”
Legal briefs filed March 29 ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn rulings by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has concluded that those in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are in this country legally. More to the point, the judges said Arizona has no right to unilaterally decide the issue for itself.
That is precisely what Jan Brewer did in 2012 when she issued an executive order declaring that DACA, instituted by the Obama administration, did not entitle those accepted into the program the right to drive.
Brewer is gone.
