Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti speaks at the 2014 Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly HillsBy Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Police in Los Angeles will no longer hold in jail undocumented immigrants for federal authorities unless a judge requests it, officials said on Monday. The announcement by Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck marks the latest move by officials in California to limit cooperation with the U.S. government in a program that has been a top priority for immigration officials and has helped deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants. The federal government's Secure Communities program was launched in 2008 in partnership with the FBI and local law enforcement to deport unauthorized immigrants who are arrested by police for other offenses. Under the program, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can ask that detainees suspected of entering the country illegally be held for up to 48 hours extra to give federal immigration authorities more time to take custody of them.

Arizona cannot deny driver's licenses to some immigrants -court

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/08/2014 - 03:36
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court ruled on Monday that Arizona cannot deny driver's licenses to some undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children. The decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a district court ruling in a challenge to an Arizona policy covering those who benefited from a federal program that let certain immigrants stay in the country. Recipients of the program, known as "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" or DACA, were prohibited in Arizona from using employment documents to prove they were in the United States legally and obtain driver's licenses. The three-judge appellate panel said in its ruling that "it could identify no legitimate state interest that was rationally related to defendants' decision to treat DACA recipients disparately from other noncitizens." After the DACA program took effect in August 2012, it was described by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer as an "Obama amnesty plan." In an executive order, her office directed state agencies to prevent recipients from becoming eligible for any state identification, including driver's licenses.
