(ARIZONA DAILY STAR) PHOENIX — The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a last-minute bid by Gov. Jan Brewer to keep dreamers from getting licenses to drive.
In a brief order issued this morning, the court denied Brewer's request that it issue a stay to prevent the 9th Circuit from ordering a federal judge in Phoenix to issue an injunction blocking Brewer's edict declaring that dreamers do not meet the requirements of Arizona law. The justices gave no reason for their decision.
