Brewer sued over license policy for immigrants

PHOENIX — Immigrant rights advocates filed a lawsuit Thursday that seeks to overturn Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s order denying driver’s licenses for young immigrants who have gotten work permits and avoided deportation under a new Obama administration policy.

The lawsuit alleges the state has in effect classified young-adult immigrants as not having permission to be in the country and asks a federal judge to declare Brewer’s policy unconstitutional.
