    Answered . As long as you remain within the United States, then you should not have any inadmissibility issues since you are already present in the country with deferred action. As for the ID cards, you are correct that Arizona currently is unwilling to issue ID Cards or Driver's Licenses to those who are granted employment authorization under the DACA program - this is based off of an executive order from Governor Jan Brewer. You should be fine to fly within the country.
