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.
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.
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?
God Bless Jan and Dave.
every pub governor should join the bandwagon and get behind them and stand up to the obamanation.
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.
Proud of my governor Heineman! Nebraska is not a bad place to live right now.
First Arizona, now Nebraska. Only 55 more states to go!
Thanks for the link. The good guys need to know their efforts are appreciated.
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!
See if you can get the Gov. Perry-TX fans to give him a call.....
if you hear any blue collar liberal types (union members) complaining about a lack of work or low wages....
remind them of this
Any indication that Scott Walker will follow the leaders here??
How about Bobby Jindahl & Haley Barber?? Florida?
