PHOENIX - 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 ((back-door amnesty)) 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.
God Bless You, Jan Brewer.
I’ll see your executive order and raise you one states rights.
Well, that puts her in the top tier for the pres slot for 2016.
It's a good idea. Why don't these folks go to an illegal friendly state like California instead? They can get everything for free there. Why stay in Arizona where they're not welcome?
Sure, California is broke, but if you're going to dance with the liberal devil, you're going to get burnt.
Also known as the “FUBO Act”
God Bless Jan! For such a time as this. What would Arizona do without her?
Michael Savage said that she would have made an EXC. VP pick . Brewer or Allen West .
If they riot, pillage, plunder and loot,...shoot’em.
Wow. How long will it take for the King to have her arrested?
And here comes a federal liberal judge to quash it in 3...2...1...
Governor Susana Martinez (NM) needs to follow suit.
Well said ... and good for Gov. Jan!!!
Romney will be running for his second term in 2016. I love my governor but she will never run for president since Ryan will be running in 2020 after 2 terms as VP.
Any minute we should see a similar story from Governor Pat Quinn in Illinois.
Thank you, Jan Brewer!! My head has been EXPLODING that no one was stopping zero and his executive order that is giving all of those illegals amnesty!!
I was looking for a /sarc, after some of the comments at the source. Incredible if they believe what they are saying.
Governor Brewer is my governor, but I would say that, sadly, she is not presidential. Bless her heart, I love her to death, but she doesn’t have the smooth, quick manner of a U.S. president.
Homeland Security in 1213...that seems to be a stepping stone for Arizona Governors; and a great improvement.
Of course, If Bolton isn't available for Sec of State I might change my mind.
It does create an interesting issue for the upcoming election. I wonder what sorts of sound-bites it'll produce for Romney attack ads? If the Romney crew has the courage to use them, that is.
Obama is not the only chief executive that can write an executive order. Gov. Brewer is able to use this authority to serve her constituents positively, her true, legally resident constituents, that is..
Very proud of you, Governor Brewer!! Thank you.
Jan Brewer -— One tough Broad! Hang in there Babe!
1213? Well, come to think of it Obama’s behavior and competence does bear a striking resemblance to that of King John. And Lord Biden is his inbred idiot heir.
Proud of my governor!
Tpmmy is obviously being sarcastic...LOL
And here comes a federal liberal judge to quash it in 3...2...1...
’ - - - 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 ((back-door amnesty)) program.”
Once again Arizona Leads America in stopping the illegal actions of arrogant Obamanation Commie Dictator Obama.
keeping in mind the SCOTUS recently ruled that the executive branch could ignore federal law.
And see the SCOTUS ruling on the so-called `Affordable Care Act’ and Kelo.
The only reason it narrowly ruled for Heller in his suit against DC is that five of them knew that if they didn’t, we would be in DC and they would ... not.
And as far as a lot of Americans are concerned, that possibility is still on the table. We’ll see how it goes.
Romney will be running for his second term in 2016.
***Then the soonest way to get a conservative as POTUS is if Romney doesn’t win, right?
Except there won’t be much of a country left if Obama gets a second term.
BTW, I will be with Governor Brewer next Thurday evening when she will proudly announce that AZ is giving their 29 delegates votes to Mitt Romney.
You mean, “Without Her” and Joe Arpaio.
Indeed, but the Rom-bots won’t say that. :)
You can be excused for wondering, since it was an ABC News site, but it seemed pretty clear to me that poster Jason was in <deep_sarcasm> mode. Some of the other posters, however, were not.
Except there wont be much of a country left if Obama gets a second term.
***When the Great Depression hit, it was on Hoover’s watch. Republicanism was damaged for decades. Looking back, wouldn’t you prefer that it had happened on a democrat’s watch?
Oh, I know, I know, most people can’t address a hypothetical. They always say, yeah but... I’d rather not have a great depression at all; or some other wiggle. But maybe you’ll step up to the plate.

While plenty of fainthearted Repubs in evidence; we need the lions-only, moving forward. . .
Kevno; perhaps you have not noticed, the new 'paradigm' we have moved into?
This is not the '1930's - at least not as they were in America, that is.
Germany, however; was in the grips of their own National Socialist Party - interestingly and as well - with their similar acquiescence and 'reach out' to Islamists; just as is our 'national' Socialist Party doing same today. (Muftis; Imams; Muslim Brotherhood; CAIR; all a part of Obama,Inc./Dem family).
America's totalitarians; repped by today's Democrat Party; obsessive by their own conceit; all but howl with the power they now hold in Washington and in our White House. By agenda; they are inserting themselves into every private, personal; political and civil aspect of American life; while impacting all individual/personal freedoms in America per their guarantee of 'fundamental change'.
They are for all intents/purposes/goals;doing a 'fast shred' of America's Constitution; as they must; as per any great 'heist' in history; time is critical to maximize their goals. Up till now; these people have had to be; 'very patient'. Now 'Change'; is in their grasp. . .
Why not follow that common thread; Kevmo; (and others who share you perspective) Easier than your suggestion above; as you will not need any 'hypothetical' for your your effort.
As we are at critical juncture; fervently hope, that you; and all like-minded; step up to the plate.
Bravo, Gov Brewer! Stand your/OUR ground!
Easier than your suggestion above; as you will not need any ‘hypothetical’ for your your effort.
***Your whole post is one giant hypothetical. Just another wiggle. It happens almost every time with the ABO crowd. Seems to be almost genetic.
These illegals need to go the F home, IMO. Enough of them coming here and taking from, and living off, the backs of hard working people. NO MORE FREE STUFF....you got that???
I LOVE that Jan has done this and I am happy we FINALLY have someone not only standing up this regime, but doing what is RIGHT to protect the state and people of the state.
I seriously would like to hear though, from a qualified, knowledgable attorney, what the standing is for Brewers EO compared to Obama’s EO, as in, does AZ have a leg to stand on (or more) to enforce this? I certainly pray so.
DITTO! God Bless Governor Brewer for doing the right things for the citizens of Arizona!
Arizone Freeper ping here!
Thanks for the ping.
She quite often makes me proud of her and our state.
