Shirl Mora James: Nebraska Shouldn't Be Alone Denying Drivers License To Young Immigrants

Shirl Mora James, Civil Rights and Immigration lawyer of Nebraska believes Nebraska should not be alone to deny driver's licenses to young immigrants.  

The Dreamers have legal presence, work permits and social security numbers and jobs, it is high time for a driver licenses for each and everyone of them. Unless you are a Native American, you, too, came from immigrants, who were not invited to America....just ask a Native American!

Nebraska now alone in denying driver's licenses to young immigrants

LINCOLN — Nebraska now stands alone when it comes to denying driver’s licenses to young undocumented immigrants allowed to remain in the country by the Obama administration.

An appeals court Monday blocked a similar policy in Arizona, the only other state that refused driver’s licenses for young immigrants shielded from deportation under a controversial program started two years ago by President Barack Obama.

The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals marks a victory for advocates who argued that the young immigrants were treated unequally by Arizona’s policy. But it can’t be used to predict the outcome of a pending lawsuit challenging Nebraska’s policy, said Amy Miller, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska.

“While we’re excited for the news for the young dreamers in Arizona, the Nebraska court will have to come to its own conclusion,” she said, using “dreamers” to refer to the category of immigrants often brought to the country illegally as children. The ACLU brought the lawsuit on behalf of four immigrants in the state who’ve been denied driving privileges.    READ MORE>>>
