Gov. Jan Brewer bars public benefits for illegal immigrants

Posted on 08/16/2012 6:01:08 AM PDT by tsowellfan

PHOENIX - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday ordered state agencies to deny driver's licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration policy.

In an executive order, Brewer said she was reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law denying taxpayer-funded public benefits and state identification to illegal immigrants.

Young illegal immigrants around the nation on Wednesday began the process of applying for federal work permits under the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

The federal policy defers deportations for that group if they meet certain criteria, including arrival in the United States before they turned 16 and no convictions for certain crimes.

After President Barack Obama announced the policy change in June, Brewer labeled it ``backdoor amnesty'' and political pandering by the Democratic president.

Arizona has been in the vanguard of states enacting laws against illegal immigration.

The U.S. Supreme Court in June overturned parts of the Arizona enforcement law known as SB1070 but ruled that a key provision on requiring police to ask people about their immigration status under certain circumstances can be implemented.

The Obama administration challenged that law in 2010 after Brewer signed it into law.

In the past decade, Arizona voters twice approved laws denying publicly funded services, such as in-state resident university tuition rates, to illegal immigrants unless mandated by the federal government.

Brewer's order said the policy's federal paperwork doesn't confer lawful status on illegal immigrants and won't entitle them to Arizona public benefits...

Obama’s order is as illegal as the aliens who have invaded this country. Obama is a traitor. Brewer is a Patriot.

Are there any other governors in this country who are offended by the jug eared marxist’s usurpation of their authority, and have guts enough to follow Gov Brewers’s lead?

Anybody who publicly stands up to the fascist regime in Washington is an American patriot and a hero.

God bless Jan Brewer

Gov. Brewer is the only governor in the USA who believes that states have rights. When Obamugabe issued his illegal amnesty edict, the eunuchs heading the other states just bent over and submitted. Shame on them, and bravo for her.

Why is this even news? The headline should read governor obeys the law. It is so rare to see an elected officials honestly executing the responsibilities of their office that it becomes a news item.

This is how far America has declined in the age of Obama.

Thank you Arizona!

Hopeful other States including mine do the same.

One of these showdowns will eventually lead to correcting nobama’s messes or a “real” showdown that the liberal left will soon and long regret.

Millions of illegal socialists given amnesty months before the most important election in our history.

Vote bribing at its most brazen and reps/romney should be screaming bloody murder.

The VAST majority of Mexicans who crossed the border ILLGEGALLY without proper legal documentation, never gave a ZIT for their future, but only were hoping that their children would have a future. I know this for a FACT. People wanted their kids to have what they considered they didn’t. BY REWARDING THEM THUS: YOU FURTHER VALIDATE THE GAMING OF THE SYSTEM, AND ENCOURAGE YET MANY MORE TO COME.

Sap-happy, vote crazed Obama needs immediate professional care-----this stupid idiot does not know (and does not care) that the lawbreakers he's sucking up to for votes dont give a whit about US laws---you can bet your bottom dollar fraudulent apps will be stacked to the high heavens.

The WH jerk says his EO doesnt give illegals voting rights, drivers' licenses, etc etc etc.

But they are already registered to vote under multiple identities---they already have forged drivers' licenses---they already have several stolen SS nos.....and they even have forged work permits.

All of these documents are readily available to "impoverished" illegals for a few thousad dollars each from traveling document brokers/mfgs.

WHICH IDENTITY WILL THE "YOUNGSTERS" USE TO AVOID DEPORTATION? Using false identities and stolen SS nos to fill out official govt documents should incur legal penalties.

"Impoverished" latinos "just looking for a (sob) better life in the US " are paying coyotes $20,000 to get across the border. Where are they getting this money?

And that's not all---once they get here, the common practice is to establish numerous faked/forged identities ---paying several thousand dollars per identity.

It is my firm belief that Third World countries----Mexico and other terrorist-connected countries---are financing the invasion. The invaders are pressure groups----voting blocs---since they know vote-crazed US politicians will do anything for votes.

Visions of "foreign aid billions" are dancing in their heads----the salivating federales are using the Mideast Playbook....they will hammer Congress and use voting blocs as the tool to get more and more US tax dollars.

=========================================================

The federales are also getting a cut of the billions the invaders wire back home. And also getting a cut of the numerous scams the "voting blocs" are perpetrating. Read on.

=============================================

REFERENCE--(Excerpt) Read more at twincities.com ---Treasury Dept investigators estimate another $21 billion could make its way to ID thieves' pockets over the next five years. The IRS is detecting far fewer fraudulent tax refund claims than actually occur, according to a govt audit that warned the widespread problem could undermine public trust in the U.S. tax system.

Although the IRS detected about 940,000 fraudulent returns for last year claiming $6.5 billion in refunds, there were potentially another 1.5 million undetected cases of thieves seeking refunds after assuming the identity of a dead person, child or someone else who normally wouldn't file a tax return.

In just one example, investigators found a single address in Lansing, Mich, was used to file 2,137 separate tax returns. The IRS issued more than $3.3 million in refunds to that address.

Florida is the epicenter of the identity theft crisis (a state overrun with latinos---many of whom are Cuban---who are also involved in massive Medicare/Aid fraud). Just three addresses in Florida filed more than 500 returns totaling more than $1 million in refunds for each address.

In another troubling scenario, hundreds of refunds were deposited into the same bank account—--a red flag for investigators searching for ID thieves-- who may be filing for refunds for multiple people. In one instance, the IRS deposited 590 refunds totaling more than $900,000 into one account.

===========================================

REFERENCE ICE's "documents and benefits fraud task force" found a common practice among "impoverished" illegals is to buy several faked identities for several thousand dollars each----the illegal then votes and rides the US gravy train under several names.

<><> Jose Madrigal---the Washington state rapist---had some 30 identities. And probably voted and collected US benefits under every single identity.

<><> Another illegal used multiple identites to bilk UI systems of some $3.5 million.

============================================ < p>US Dept of the Treasury Says Illegal Aliens Collecting Billions in Tax Credits According to the US Dept of Treasury’s Inspector General, more than $4.2 billion in additional child credits were paid out in 2010 to illegal immigrants. In 2005, the pay outs totaled $924 million. This program allows low income earners to claim a $1,000 per child credit. $20 billion EITC is estimated to have been paid out to these cunning "impoverished" illegals. Most of them are collecting over and over again-----using multiple identities-----falsifying official apps---claiming children they do not have and/or falsely stating kids are back in their homelands.

ILLEGAL ARRESTED FOR SELLING FORGED W-2 FORMS WITH STOLEN SS NOS

March 8, 2012 KENNER, La. Kenner police arrested illegal Marvin Baca who sold false W-2 forms to another illegal immigrant for $1,500. Baca sold fraudulent W-2 forms for $1,500 to other Hispanics here illegally.

Police said that on one of the forged W-2 forms had a SS no of a person living in Virginia. Police said illegal Hispanics purchase fictitious W-2 forms and file false tax returns with the government to receive EITC refunds.

=======================================================

Now we know what they got in those backpacks as they hightail it over the border: "How To Loot and Bilk The US govt,".....written and provided by the Mexican govt (with instructions on where to send the federales their cut of the loot).

Obama’s #1 goal is re-election and he needs Hispanics to get off their couch and vote again as in 2008 and things are not well in the Obama-land economy. This is intended to motivate them to vote. Notice they call it 'temporary' two years, that means another administration (assuming we had a party who cared who gets elected) will know who all these people are and COULD take action.

It seems like a pretty safe move for Obama to do this a few months before the election, the chances of a high profile crime by one of these people being publicized before the election is low, but many Hispanics with illegal relatives will be grateful, as well as the illegals themselves that vote illegally.

During the debates you can bet the Obama Media (who asks the questions) and Obama will put Romney and Ryan on the spot on two different issues.

1) What will you do about those “immigrants” who under President Obama have been granted temporary Amnesty?

2) What is your stance on gay marriage and gays in the military?

"Impoverished" latinos "just looking for a (sob) better life in the US " are paying coyotes $20,000 to get across the border. Where are they getting this money?

Many are financed by those who are already here. They are harvesting US dollars like crops (government benefits and underground economy cash) and "remitting" the money to their connections south of the border. US taxpayers are being forced to help foot the bill for the nation's illegal invasion.

"MEXICO CITY – Mexicans living and working abroad sent home $11.85 billion in the first six months of the year, an increase of 6.2 percent from the same period in 2011, the country’s central bank said Wednesday.

....Remittances from expatriates are Mexico’s second-largest source of foreign exchange after oil exports and help cover living expenses for millions of households. Most of the money is sent from the United States, where an estimated 12 million Mexicans live, about half of them undocumented migrants."

Yep, if he wasn’t black they would be impeaching him.

Actually those sound like good questions, unfortunately Romney doesnt want to answer them and will probably look terrible trying to.

If Romney was well ahead of Obama in polls especially in swing states, he would have leverage on who moderates the debates, but if Romney needs the debates to win then beggers cant be choosers.

A great moderator would be Brett Baur at FNC. He really does a good job.

...but like I say, if Romney needs the debates as McCain did, then he has little leverage.

Answers;

1) What will you do about those “immigrants” who under President Obama have been granted temporary Amnesty?

Answer: How does this help put Americans, who were BORN HERE, back to work in an economy that “Mr. Obama” and the Democrats ruined?

2) What is your stance on gay marriage and gays in the military?”

Answer: How does this issue help put Americans, back to work in an economy that “Mr. Obama” and the Democrats ruined? How does this bring back jobs to the country, the jobs that the Democrats allowed to be outsourced and sent overseas?

How is this issue relative to ANYTHING that helps puts the wheels back on the engine of the American economy?

There’s your answers, right there.

And make that stumblebum shoeshine boy telemprompter wh*re defend HIS economy, and HIS policies.

And if he insists on blaming Bush - “Mr. Obama - YOU’RE in charge, YOU and nobody else. It’s YOUR job to put policies on place to repair it, and you;ve had three years and half of that a complete rubber stamp Dem congress to help you, and you STILL managed to screw it up...”

More governors should follow Jan Brewer's lead.

Only a year ago Obama told an audience he could NOT do what he's just done because it would be illegal and not in keeping with his role as president.

RE :”2) What is your stance on gay marriage and gays in the military?”
.......
Answer: How does this issue help put Americans, back to work in an economy that “Mr. Obama” and the Democrats ruined?

A REAL candidate could answer : “ My position on marriage is the same as it was last year and the year before that. Marriage is a legal and religious relationship between a man and a woman. Unlike YOU I don't suddenly evolve my position 180 degrees on such issues as that just because it's election year and the poll winds blew a different direction. I actually have real morals not floating ones.” NUKE!

Unfortunately we don't have a real candidate, we have Romney. Heaven knows what he really believes. Maybe I better avoid the debates altogether.

About 14-15 states could break away from Obama’s America & form the Western States of Ameria.
Arizona
New Mexico
Texas
Oklahoma
Missouri
Kansas
Nebraska
S Dakota
N Dakota
Montana
Whoming
Idaho
Colorado
Utah
Nevada
& possibly Alaska

Let the Eastern Coast Elites try to feed & heat themselves without these states.

Yesterday Pat Robertson did a feature on amnesty. He repeated the old line—they are really fine people yadayadayada. Then he asks the co host “Don’t you love Hispanics?” This is what this is all about -do you love Hispanics. What happend to the brains of our political, media and religious leaders? They are so gullible an easy to manipulate. Focus on the Family had the apostle of the Dream Act Rev. Samuel Rodriguez on their radio show doing his usual Hispanic cheerleading, Richard Land has fallen into the tender trap of giving the Hispanics all they demand. Look up Rev. Samuel Rodriguez if you never heard of him. Watch out for this guy.
