ACLU sues Secretary of State over driver's licenses

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- The ACLU of Michigan has filed suit against the Secretary of State's office on behalf of three young immigrants.  The suit challenges the state's policy of denying driver's licenses to immigrant youth who have been granted permission by the federal government to work in the country.

One plaintiff, Leen Nour El Zayat is a third year pre-med student at Wayne State.  She says she can not successfully complete her studies and accept a job if she is unable to drive to school or work.

The federal lawsuit seeks to require Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson to issue driver's licenses to young immigrants who qualify for the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and who are otherwise qualified for a license.
