    Federal officials say nine immigrants who entered the United States illegally were found locked inside the cargo area of a rental truck at a Border Patrol checkpoint in southern Arizona.

PHOENIX (AP) - Immigrant rights advocates are urging a federal appeals court to halt Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's order denying driver's licenses for young immigrants who have gotten work permits and avoided deportation under an Obama administration policy.

In a 77-page brief filed Monday evening with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, the immigration rights advocates argue that Arizona's policy is unconstitutional because it's trumped by federal law.

They are seeking to overturn a May decision by U.S. District Judge David Campbell that denied a request for an order prohibiting the policy.

But Campbell also said immigrant rights advocates are likely to succeed in arguing that the state lets some immigrants with work permits get driver's licenses yet won't let immigrants protected under Obama's program have the same benefit.
