Governor Brewer Signs Executive Order Illegals Will Not Get Welfare
Brewer Signs Order Prohibiting Benefits to Young Illegal Immigrants
State law denies taxpayer-funded benefits and state ID to illegal immigrants.
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 program.
Brewer’s order issued Wednesday 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.
