Under Obama’s executive order amnesty, not only do the foreign nations (a much better term, and accurate term suggested by a Tweep) get work permits, they also get drivers licenses. Governor Brewer takes a stand and illustrates what a governor can do to fight this amnesty outrage. If Obama thinks he can unleash a scortched earth policy in every single state, he just got a message that’s not going to happen. Especially sweet? She’s blocking this dangerous nonsense in the same fashion Obama delivered it–through an executive order 🙂 The more we can keep this at bay until after Romney is inaugurated, the easier it will be to reverse.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed an executive order directing state agencies to deny driver’s licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration program.

After the order was issued, supporters of the program and the DREAM Act took to the streets of Phoenix in protest. Video from Air15 showed the protesters carrying signs and walking down Central Avenue toward the State Capitol.

Brewer’s Wednesday order says she’s reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law denying taxpayer-funded public benefits and state identification to illegal immigrants.

Young illegal immigrants could start applying Wednesday with the federal government for work permits under the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

The program defers deportations for young illegal immigrants if they meet certain criteria.
Brewer’s order says the program’s federal paperwork doesn’t confer lawful status on illegal immigrants and won’t entitle them to Arizona public benefits.

She directs state agencies to start emergency rulemaking processes as necessary to implement her order.

    I’ve read her book Scorpions for Breakfast, excellent. This lady has guts the like of which McRino and Janet Nobody home of H.S. does not. I may not always agree with her but, I’d follow her into battle (she IS a Leader).

    Don’t think we don’t notice that Gov.’Rick’ Perry(failed Republican candidate for the nomination for President and supporter of Dewhurst’s crashed and burned US Senate runoff election) doesn’t have the cojones to do the same after all the moanin’, groanin’, and complainin’ about ‘The Border’ here in Texas.
