judgeship(AP) — A judge has dismissed a lawsuit that challenged Nebraska’s denial of driver’s licenses to people who were brought into the country illegally as children, but allowed to stay under a new federal program.

U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp said in a ruling Wednesday that the state had not violated the equal-protection rights of the youths. The lawsuit was filed by Mayra Saldana, a student at Peru State College who was granted deferred-action status under an Obama administration program.

Saldana applied for a driver’s license three times at the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles in January 2013, and was denied. Saldana came to the United States from Mexico at age 2.

      What is racist about an ILLEGAL Immigrant? If they want a drivers license, become a citizen and pay taxes like we do…(Key word ILLEGAL). “people who were brought into the country illegally as children”
