PHOENIX (AP) - Immigrant rights advocates plan to appeal a court ruling that declined to halt 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.

The plans for an appeal were revealed Monday in filings in federal court in Phoenix.

In May, U.S. District Judge David Campbell denied a request from the immigrant rights advocates for a preliminary injunction, but their lawsuit remains alive as they pursue arguments that the young immigrants are suffering from unequal treatment.

Brewer's lawyers argued that Obama's policy isn't federal law.

Immigrant rights advocates say the policy makes it difficult for such young immigrants to do essential things in their everyday life, such as going to school.
