Dreamers Get To Drive In Arizona04:04

This article is more than 5 years old.

Arizona's Motor Vehicles Department is now open to DREAMers.

Starting today, immigrants who qualify for the Obama Administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals can get driver's licenses in Arizona.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday let stand a ruling requiring the state to issue licenses to residents brought to the U.S. unlawfully as young children by their parents. The policy change follows a recent rollback of a string of strict immigration enforcement policies in Arizona.
