Arizona Governor Brewer Takes On Obama,...Yet Again

Jan Brewer denies deferred action recipients drivers’ licenses; will other governors follow suit?  Is the yahoo! news article which you can read in it's entirety here.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer had released a strongly worded executive order preventing deferred action recipients from obtaining driver's licenses or any other unspecified "public benefits" in her state, renewing her public spat with the White House over illegal immigration and sending a hundred or so illegal immigrants, who were in line to get deferred action documentation, into a protest march to "claim their rightfully owed public benefits paid for by American citizen taxpayers.

Here's what the FBI calls a clue,....America owes you nothing. Obey the law, respect the melting pot culture, assimilate,...again obey the laws and don't expect the rightful American citizens to pay for what you think in your warped minds you are owed.

Brewer writes in the order that as many as 80,000 young people in Arizona could benefit from the new status, which gives young illegal immigrants under age 31 who came to the country as children relief from deportation and a two-year work permit.

Brewer notes that the deferred action status does not make its recipients legal immigrants per se; it's more a limbo state where the immigrants are now not deportable and legally able to work but are not progressing toward a green card or other permanent legal status. Even so, the federal government says immigrants in this category should be allowed to have a driver's license under the REAL ID Act passed in 2005. But states can opt out of the REAL ID Act's requirements for a variety of reasons, and more than a dozen have done so.

On a conference call with reporters earlier this week, an Obama administration official said it is up to states' leadership whether to allow deferred action recipients to apply for driver's licenses or for in-state tuition at public colleges. (A handful of states already grant in-state tuition to residents regardless of immigration status.) "DHS doesn't comment on state specific matters," agency spokesman Peter Boogaard (called Boogerhead by his office mates) said in a statement on Thursday.

Brewer has decided no to both, writing in the order that providing any benefits to the young people would have "significant and lasting effects on the Arizona budget." But immigrant rights groups counter that it makes no sense to give young people the right to legally work but prevent them from legally driving to their jobs, and they are encouraging people to pressure states to allow them this privilege.

If this proves to be too much butt pain for the illegal immigrants. not having a drivers license, then move to another state or better yet - back to where you came from. Obama wants all these illegals to have DL's so they can vote.
