Brewer seeks to keep her driver's license policy

PHOENIX (AP) -

Lawyers for Gov. Jan Brewer are urging a judge to reject a request to block Arizona from enforcing the governor's order that denies driver's licenses for young immigrants who have gotten work permits and avoided deportation under a new Obama administration policy.

A lawsuit by immigrant rights advocates asks a judge to declare Brewer's policy unconstitutional on the grounds it's trumped by federal law and alleges the policy makes it difficult or impossible for such young immigrants to go to school, grocery stores and hold down a job.

Brewer's lawyers say the Obama administration policy doesn't have the same trumping effect of federal law and that those pushing the lawsuit didn't support their allegation that they can't attend to their daily needs without a license.
