Immigration rights activists call policy 'unconstitutional'

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Today in Phoenix, arguments were presented in federal court to block Gov. Jan Brewer's order, denying driver's licenses for young immigrants avoiding deportation.

Last year, President Obama issued an executive order granting two-year delays in deportation for young people brought into the country illegally as children.

A lawsuit by immigrant rights advocates says Brewer's policy is unconstitutional because it is trumped by the new federal policy.
