Jan Brewer, in an executive order reaffirming Arizona state law denying young illegal immigrants driver's licenses and other public benefits in Phoenix. Organizations that advocate for immigrant rights on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 filed a lawsuit seeking to reverse an order by Jan Brewer that denies driving licenses to young immigrants who have obtained work permits and avoided deportation thanks to a new policy of President Barack Obama. The lawsuit alleges that Arizona's order actually classifies called "dreamers" as immigrants without permission to reside in the United States. The organizations asked a federal judge to declare unconstitutional the order because federal law takes precedence and because it denies licenses without a valid excuse. (AP Photo/Ross D.
