Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge recently joined with 13 other states to file an amicus brief in support of the petition for writ of certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold Arizona’s right to deny driver’s licenses to undocumented illegal aliens.

The ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit will force Arizona to issue driver’s licenses to people granted federal work permits through the Obama administration’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program. In February, six dissenting judges on the full 9th Circuit wrote that the court’s decision against Arizona’s driver’s license policy creates “a world where the president really can pre-empt state laws with the stroke of a pen.”
