Illegals closer to legal licenses
PHOENIX- The U.S. Supreme Court moved thousands of young immigrants closer to obtaining driver's licenses in Arizona with a ruling on Wednesday.
The court denied a request from Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to put a lower court decision on hold. That ruling struck down her executive order to deny driver's license to about 20,000 young immigrants now protected from deportation by an Obama Administration policy that took effect in 2012.
A federal court of appeals barred the state from enforcing the governor's order.
There's no timetable on when the immigrants could get licenses.
