Governor Brewer prevents Obama turning 80,000 illegals into Arizona welfare recipients

by Doug Book,  staff writer

Governor Jan Brewer has put the kibosh on Barack Obama’s unconstitutional, Dream Act “end run” around the US Congress by signing an executive order which will keep an estimated 80,000 illegal aliens off of Arizona welfare rolls.  (1)

In June, Barack Obama directed the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS)—a division of Homeland Security–to provide illegal aliens the means of deferring federal deportation orders. With this Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the president allows illegals who claim to have come to the United States as children to both avoid deportation and apply for US work permits in their state of residence by meeting any one of a number of conditions of eligibility.

Of course, as ICE Council president Chris Crane has already made clear, no illegal applying under the program is likely to be denied that eligibility.  For according to Crane, “[ICE and Border Patrol] officers have been told there is no burden for the alien to prove anything.”  If they say they qualify by having attended high school or taken a GED, their word cannot be questioned. They’re in!  (2)

Much of the major media claim that this presidential decree directing the executive branch to institute portions of the Dream Act (contrary to the will of Congress and the American people) came about via executive order. But that is NOT the case. Rather, Obama simply ignored the fact that the Dream Act had been 5 times voted down in Congress and issued a “demand-by-decree” that portions of the Act be implemented to suit his own political preferences. In short, he just TOLD Janet Napolitano what he wanted immigration-related  agencies of the executive branch to accomplish and the USCIS is getting it done.  (3)

But if, as many have claimed, the Deferred Action program will not put illegals further along the road to citizenship, why was Obama so eager to have it implemented?

Arizona immigration attorney and Dream Act supporter Jose Penalosa provides the answer when he states that individuals covered under Obama’s Deferred Action decree will be the proud members of a brand new “…specific, non-visa immigrant category…”  (4) This new, Immigration Department “approved” category will provide these individuals with a special, “authorized presence” within the state, according to Regina Jeffries, Chair of the Arizona Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. (5)

And members of this new “immigrant category” could use that “authorized presence” to do something no other illegal alien in Arizona can do: that is, legally apply for an Arizona driver’s license, the “…gateway to public benefits in the state.” As Governor Brewer’s spokesman Matthew Benson puts it, “If the state doesn’t have the authority to block these illegal aliens from getting driver’s licenses our agencies will have no way of knowing who is entitled to public benefits.”  (6)

But Brewer’s executive order was specifically designed to “…bar people with deferred status from obtaining driver’s licenses or other state benefits.” The two page document therefore blocks the access of these “specially authorized” illegals to the entire welfare system of the state of Arizona! And as a result, Obama is prevented from using the tax dollars of Arizonans to purchase the votes of grateful Latinos! (7)

Over the weekend, Nebraska joined Arizona in denying state benefits to illegals with deferred status. Will other Republican governors have the courage to join the fight?

1996: Democrat President Bill Clinton ignores a “Declaration War” from Osama bin Laden. As explained later by his consultant Dick Morris Clinton did not want to do anything risk losing a war on terror which he could lose making him look bad just before his reelection campaign would be winding down.

  1. Doug-really good piece. Obama is a
    snake (no offense to the Tea Party flag) a gutter rat who needs to be eventually deported. Applause for Jan Brewer. Stand tall and fight this wicked evil usurper in the White House.

  2. Wouldn’t it be great if the Men???in the republican party had the guts this lady has in fighting this illegal in the office of the POTUS, especially the Speaker of the HOuse who shows no guts what-so-ever when it comes to telling the POTUS he has no authority to by-pass Congress and fight the the good fight to put Obama in his place.

  3. bargal1 : Amen Sister…Good call !
    Doug : Another excellent story told by you on the pages of CiR !! Way to go sport !!
    Doug, that “demand-by-decree” thingy you mentioned…..that has no actual basis in law I assume?….and that it is merely representative of another in a series of O’Bunco’s “I did it MY way”, illicit power grabs??
    God Bless Jan Brewer….that lady has mega-ovaries…..unlike the “stones-gone-missing” House and Senate Leadership.
    Think I will send a copy of this article to my Governor, Sean Parnell of Alaska… to see what HE plans on doing about this.
    Ain’t it just wonderful???…..this new illegal alien “deferred” status grants MORE rights to illegals than are possessed or allowed to true American citizens !!
    This is patently unconstitutional…all laws are to be applied uniformly to all citizens.
    We know such a concept is now totally foreign to Congress and State legislatures as they enact “special interest” legislation (read ‘group-rights over individual rights’) on a daily basis…but unless those august personages wish to lose ALL of their bleedin’ power to this O’bunco person (who wrote the book “Presidents and Pawns for Dummies”)…they’d better get cracking and find a way to stop his sorry backside !
    Turning their backs upon the Constitutional limitations of their OWN powers hasn’t helped matters in the least; it has made them gutless….they’ll fall for anything now…as they ‘stand’ for nothing.
    These alien cheaters merely have to CLAIM that they meet certain specifications and THEIR word is LAW??? They cannot be challenged??
    Why, that is “Insanity x (times), Googol”
    Can you imagine what would happen to any of us white or black folks if we tried to stonewall ANY official (law-type or otherwise), who was requesting documentation from us, by saying to them “I don’t gotta prove nuthin’ to you !” ????
    Judah’s Priest…we’d be hauled away kicking and screaming…and rightly so.

    1. Hi Joanne,

      The “demand by decree” was just something I made up. Just thought it sounded exactly like what the One has been doing for the past 3 years.
      The REAL problem is, if Romney should win in November neither Obama nor any of his criminal minions will be charged with their corrupt/unconstitutional abuses of the power while in the White House! They will all get away scot-free, lest Jesse and Uncle Al begin protests for RAAAAACISM against the former president.
      If you think Boehner & Co were too gutless to charge these people with anything while they were IN office, HA. Once out, they could commit MURDER a dozen times over and walk away!

  4. If you are an outspoken Christian in America,
    you need to be concerned.

    If you are an outspoken Christian in America
    who happens to be a gun owner, you need to be
    very concerned.

    And if you are a Christian gun owner who
    disagrees with the Progressive anti-Christian
    agenda in America and have a platform to inform
    others, you better believe that you are under
    intense scrutiny. Sound like paranoid propaganda?

    It’s one thing to say that there is a war against
    Christianity and an active agenda to disarm Americans,
    but it’s another thing altogether to watch it unfold, up close
    and personal. And yet another to actually document an
    insidious but effective tactic that is presently being used
    to silence and disarm Christians right here in America.
    I will expose a new tactic being used by the atheistic
    communist supporters of the Obama regime to silence
    Christian critics and to disarm them at the same time.

  5. Obama & his followers have another tool
    to silence anyone who opposes them.
    It’s only a matter of time before they come
    for you & me…… Raymond
