Nebraska, Mississippi Join Arizona: Deny Licenses and Benefits to Illegals Getting Obama Amnesty
Stand With Arizona ^ | 08-23-2012 | John Hill

Governors Brewer, Heineman and Bryant

Above: Profiles in Courage - Governors Jan Brewer (R-AZ), Dave Heineman (R-NE) and Phil Bryant (R-MS) have all defied Barack Obama's lawless amnesty decree by denying drivers licenses and benefits in their respective states.

Stand With Arizona

And then there were THREE.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer spoiled the celebrations of the illegal alien crowd last week by issuing an executive order denying drivers licenses and state benefits for so-called "Dreamer" illegal aliens who receive "deferred action" through Barack Obama's mass amnesty program.

Now Brewer has company. Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman and Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant have joined her defiance against Obama's lawless action.

Last week, Gov. Heineman announced that Nebraska will not issue licenses, welfare benefits or any other public assistance to the illegals unless otherwise required by Nebraska law:

"President Obama's deferred action program to issue employment authorization documents to illegal immigrants does not make them legal citizens," Heineman said in a statement.

"The State of Nebraska will continue its practice of not issuing driver's licenses, welfare benefits or other public benefits to illegal immigrants unless specifically authorized by Nebraska statute," he added.

And today, Gov. Bryant  issued an executive order  prohibiting illegal immigrants from receiving public benefits in Mississippi,  and requiring executive state agencies that administer such benefits to clarify their processes in order to guard against erroneously issuing benefits to illegal aliens  recently granted "deferred action" status by Obama's USCIS - essentially the same order AZ Gov. Brewer issued last week.

Said Bryant:

“Illegal immigration has real consequences for Mississippi, as it puts additional burdens on our already stretched budget,” Bryant said. “This executive order will help ensure that public benefits go to only those persons who are lawfully eligible.”
And Gov. Bryant also challenged the legitimacy of Obama's amnesty:
Being granted such status does not confer legal rights to a person and does not entitle that person to receive public benefits. Mississippi law prohibits issuing public benefits to a person who is not lawfully present in the state or country.”
These orders by three governors in separate regions of the nation - challenging the very legitimacy of the president's order - have added significance in light of today's lawsuit by 10 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents challenging the legality of Obama's new amnesty policy.

The line MUST be drawn: enough sitting on the sidelines. It is time to stand and be counted. Every political leader of principle must reject and actively oppose Obama's lawless usurpation of power that is granted solely to Congress.

These governors have taken a stand. So have the ICE agents. What about YOUR governor, Representative and Senator?

ACT NOW!


If YOU stand against illegal immigration and want to see the border secured, the rule of law upheld and amnesty for illegals stopped, then put your name where your heart is, and join the 160,000 who have signed our petition...

You know what this means? Vehicles will continue to be stolen by unlicensed drivers.

What state would accept another state’s driver’s license as ID to vote in their elections?

Not sure. Different states have different rules. If you just moved there, for example.

Or if you moved there and used your CA ID to get a new, let say, Minnesota DL.

Excellent!

Good for Governors Dave Heineman (R-NE) and Phil Bryant (R-MS) for standing with AZ Governor Jan Brewer, this is what it will take to stop the criminal activity of illegals that's encouraged by the feds.

Wish “tough” Rick Perry would have the cajones to join these brave Governors. On a side note, I’ve seen more Kalifornia license plates here in the last month than ever before.

I predict: unemployment will decrease, population will decrease, crime will decrease, hospital and insurance premium rates will decrease, and revenue will increase in these three states.

Good point. In Georgia I believe you have to submit proof of citizenship to get a license - at least up until emperor 0bama decreed that illegal aliens had more rights than citizens. Now, I’ve read that they will get licenses too. I don’t expect Nathan Deal to stand up to the feds.

It's a good idea. All the illegals will have to flee to the liberal states for entitlements. Let the liberals support them.

Thank you, Gov. Bryant. Now if we could only do something about our sorry attorney general.

States that are serious about not catering to illegals and not going bankrupt request multiple matching paperwork to get a DL.

(like a birth cert, SS card , AND a utility bill)

This is how it works in MN, IIRC.

I’m screwed! I live in Massachusetts and as you all know, illegal uncle lives here - gets stopped for DUI. Has his license revoked for 45 days - yes license. Then he files for a hardship and receives his license back immediately.

Gotta love this country!

HUH? How would you be a registered voter in AZ with a CA driver's license?

Just had to produce all three for my 16 year old son to get a drivers permit in Illinois. I was SHOCKED.

Still, Jose and his twin brother JoseB down the road have no problem showing up on election day, not producing any identification and casting "provisional" ballots that are counted multiple times in order for Democrats to win in this state ....

Sad when you think about it. Here I had to piss in a cup, pass a drug test and an FBI background check for my job, yet these ILLEGAL CRIMINAL ALIENS who broke our laws coming into this country seem to get endless amounts of "benefits" on my dime, without proving shit.

Makes me sick.

I think it's just talk at this point (giving driver's licenses to illegal aliens brought here as children) but the leftist press is trying to push it as a fait accompli.

Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.
