Nebraska Governor Vows to Deny Licenses to Undocumented 'DREAMers'
Fox News Latino ^ | August 20, 2012

Lincoln, Neb. – Undocumented immigrants in Nebraska who can work legally under a new policy by the Obama administration will not be able to drive themselves to their job if that state's governor has anything to say about it.

Joining Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman vows to deny driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants who qualify for a new policy that would suspend deportation for at least two years and allow them to obtain work permits.

Heineman's announcement came on the heels of Brewer's controversial decision to sign an executive order denying licenses or other major benefits to undocumented immigrants who qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.

Heineman, who, like Brewer, is Republican, said the state will not issue licenses, welfare benefits or any other public assistance to the immigrants unless otherwise required by Nebraska law.

This is awesome. All red states should do this or any states that give a rip about states rights and enforcing federal law. Let the Obama administration spend the remaining months of their term figuring out ways to sue the states, to no avail.

Wait a minute. Did you call Obamas decision to violate the Constitution controversial? His decision to circumvent Congress controversial?? Why is Brewers order to protect her State controversial?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals? ROTFLMAO! It's crap like this that makes me think that it would be a bad idea to "legalize drugs and tax the hell out of them".

Governor Susanna Martinez of New Mexico needs to follow suit. She’s been strangely quiet on the issue, and needs to step up to the plate.

You have a beautiful state - I was lucky enough to be able to drive through Nebraska last summer. Wish I'd had time to stop and stay a while. Even better to hear your governor is standing up for what's right!
