PHOENIX (AP) — Federal authorities who have pushed back against Arizona’s attempts to confront illegal immigration in recent years face a Tuesday deadline for chiming in about two state immigration policies that are being scrutinized by the courts.

The Obama administration is scheduled to provide input in a challenge of Gov. Jan Brewer’s policy that denies driver’s licenses to young immigrants who have avoided deportation under a change ordered by the president.

It’s also expected to urge a judge to throw out Arizona’s 2005 immigrant smuggling ban.

Brewer is asking a federal appeals court to reconsider its July decision that blocked the driver’s license policy.

The administration made the request to block the smuggling law as part of its challenge of the 2010 law, which made a minor change to the 2005 statute.
