Stand With Arizona
Not in my state, you don't!
After a day of lawlessness, with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens lining up across the nation to apply for Obama's "deferred action" amnesty plan, and with spineless politicians cowering in the shadows, it took an Arizonan to stand up to Obama once again.
Obama's old nemesis Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer tonight 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.
Brewer's order issued Wednesday says she's reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law denying taxpayer-funded public benefits and state identification to illegal immigrants.
Illegal aliens who are - or claim to be - under 30 were able to start applying Wednesday with the federal government for work permits under the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - a "policy note" signed by Obama on June 15th, bypassing Congress and enabling 1.76 million illegal aliens to receive blanket amnesty and work permits through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The edict permits illegal aliens to apply for nearly automatic 2-year stays from deportation and work permits, but with little verification of claims made, and no safeguards against, nor penalties for, fraud committed by illegals who apply.
But Brewer's order rejects Obama's decree and says the program's federal paperwork does NOT confer lawful status on illegal immigrants and won't entitle them to Arizona public benefits:
The issuance of Deferred Action or Deferred Action USCIS employment authorization documents to unlawfully present aliens does not confer upon them any lawful or authorized status and does not entitle them to any additional public benefit.Gov. Brewer says that the up to 80,000 eligible illegals in the state applying for deferred action would present the state with "significant and lasting impacts on the Arizona budget, its health care system and additional public benefits that Arizona taxpayers fund."
Complying with the new federal policy, writes Brewer, would go against "the intent of Arizona voters and lawmakers who enacted laws expressly restricting access to taxpayer funded benefits and state identification."Brewer directs state agencies to start emergency rulemaking processes as necessary to implement her order.
Way to go, Governor!
Stand With Arizona calls on other state governors to follow suit, and mandate that illegal aliens receiving Obama's lawless, Congressionally-bypassed amnesty are barred from receiving any state benefits for which ordinary illegal aliens would not qualify.
And we call on Gov. Brewer to go even further - and deny the use of these unlawfully-issued UCSIS work authorizations in Arizona, and bar these illegals from working in Arizona under the state's mandatory E-Verify and employer sanction provisions. The Obama drones will go nuts, and sue. Let them sue. FIGHT THEM tooth and nail. With pathetic politicians made impotent for fear of the mythical "Hispanic vote", someone must fight this corrupt Administration on their cynical, political decrees.
It might as well be Arizona, where it all began.
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 150,000 who have signed our petition...
Pretty sad when the women in charge have more balls than the men in charge.
We need 49 more like her...
Jan...You go girl !!
Brewer is my favorite governor, hands down. Okay, Scott Walker may be tied.
If these people represent the new GOP, then I hope the future hurries up. We absolutley MUST flush the old cowards down the toilet as quickly as possible and replace them with more folks like Brewer and Walker.
Give Obastard the finger again, Jan. But use the middle one this time.
It's great to see an elected official stand up for what's right and defy the PC lapdogs that's the norm for Obama and weak sisters of both parties.
Illegals are a scourge on honest citizens and legal immigrants tax dollars in all categories of social and health services.
Here in CA Gov Brown is offering complimentary auto detailing to illegals while they wait to apply for the bennies. Or he may as well be.
Middle index finger ping!
GOOD for Jan Brewer, My kind of Gov. If I could get rid of my property I would move there in a heartbeat.
Obozo zoomed this pile by without 'bothering' with Congress, so she has every right to prevent something like this from becoming effective.
Where is the Congress and where are opur Republican Congress Critters, Where are they cowering?
Where is the Congress and where are our Republican Congress Critters, Where are they cowering?
Why can’t more governors do this? There is no law on the books Obama can claim to support him. How would he have any standing in the courts?
