Which states would those be?
I assume AZ has, or will need, a list of which states' drivers licences qualify as proof. Do we know that list? Or will they be accepting all DL's as proof?
Driver License or instruction permit issued by another state, territory, or possesion of the US, except per Arizona law the following states that do not verify lawful presense in the US: HI, IL, NM, UT, and WA.
That list is for qualifying to get a DL IN Arizona, meaning people in from the states listed in the quote do not verify citizenship before granting a DL.
Not that a DL means much anyways, in most circumstances it does not qualify as a citizenship document. Beyond that I'm fairly sure there are plenty of ways to cheat the system and get a DL without being a citizen or legal immigrant.
I'm willing to bet most people if questioned couldn't prove citizenship beyond a DL on the spot.
To the other poster asking me if I agree with DUI checkpoints.
I personally do not agree with them, but I am fairly certain they have been challenged and upheld by the courts. *shrug*
