AZ Gov. Jan Brewer Defies Obama Administration Once Again

Deferred illegals will not receive public benefits.

PHOENIX (AP) - 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.

Blessing in disguise

I wish I could get rid of my state ID, and other public "benefits" and still be immune to deportation and prosecution like these immigrants are.

What would Ron Paul Do?

The problem isn't illegal's. It's really about money. I saw a video where a researcher from California went DEEP into Mexico to explore different kinds of corn and was floored to find that Monsanto's crappy GMO corn had "infected" the native corns that the people had grown for generations. Monsanto accused them of patent infringement and caused the people there to stop growing and selling their own corn and forced them to only sell GMO corn for a higher price. 100's of villagers ended up having to come to the US to try to make a living. Follow the money. It usually ends up the same places that every bad thing ends up. With the corrupt elite and government!


Illegal immigration explained

Monsanto + Minimum wage laws + Civil benefits = Illegal immigration.

Mexican's have become America's scapegoats,

as Doctor Ron Paul once said.

I am not justifying illegal actions by any means. Illegal immigrants ARE indeed... illegal. But the people in the Liberty movement need to start looking beyond the surface of the propaganda. We are expected to hate "them", those who come here and "take our jobs"! We need to start asking why and then to follow the money. Same with the wars. Why Americans die fighting illegal wars in the Middle East? Perhaps because of corporate interest? I suppose we should know the answer to this by now, and we need to do a bit of a root cause analysis of the "illegal immigration" problem.

NAFTA, the tariff-free North American trade agreement, was established by President George H. W. Bush. The American/Monsanto heavily subsidized, very high yield agriculture was producing enough to feed the world. When America began exporting CORN to Mexico, the Mexican govt had its hands tied on putting any tariffs on American corn because of NAFTA. This killed much of the Mexican agriculture. As a result, many Mexican farmers (3,000,000) lost their jobs and faced a simple choice - 1) to watch their families starve to death, or 2) to go to America and work for minimum wage.

No one would risk his or her life to spend many days and hundreds of miles on foot in a HOT desert, if those people were not FORCED to... We now have a choice to treat the symptom, or to treat the root cause of this real problem. I say that while we deal with the symptom, we also start working on the root cause. Or we will led to continue to support a total police state, which is the ultimate goal of the elite.

It certainly appears

that there is some type of plan afoot to depopulate Mexico. Unless you believe 15 to 20 million people just upped and accidentally came across the border unopposed while those left behind were forced to deal with the US government flooding their nation with some of the most deadly types of fire arms. Doesn't anybody find it curious about the Fed's heavy handed crushing of the medicinal weed clinics in Cali? Any chance they might have been making inroads upon the Mexican cartels profit margin?

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

There will be no support from the majority of Americans

for any form of legalization of illegal immigrants currently living in the U.S. until the federal government secures the border. The welfare magnet isn't going away any time in the near future. Spread out 150,000 national guard and army troops on the Mexican border and 100,000 national guard and army troops on the Canadian border with orders to detain anyone entering the country illegally until they can be identified, and then promptly send them back across. Those that are detained and identified should not be allowed to enter the U.S. legally for ten years.

Then, once illegal immigration is brought to a halt, those currently living in the U.S. without a criminal record should be treated as if they just entered legally. In other words, they would have 90 days to obtain a visa or leave the country.

100% Political Theater

..from both sides, AGAIN.

What you won't find out, unless you bother to read (not recommended) Obama's plan to grant work Visas through this program is that less than 500 people in the country are actually eligible.

So in AZ, this affects about 4 total folks.

It's a complete joke.

If it were actually the D.R.E.A.M. Act that was passed, that would be a different story.

This info is coming from top level ICE (formerly) that I know personally, so take it for what it's worth.


Jan Brewer is not trustworthy. This is a publicity stunt.

100% political theatre

and I'm really tired of the show that is playing.

and coming from the scum of

and coming from the scum of the gop in az aka jan brewer. It is like scum vs scum. jan brewer has 0 credibility.

Maybe, maybe not

Did you ever get into a 'play fight' with a friend when you were a kid? You start slapping each other around, like you're fighting. And then before you know it, one of you lands a real blow - one that hurts?

Then suddenly it turns real.

To say this only affects "4 folks" is an understatement. This article says it affects 50,000 in Chicago alone:


Now, all of Arizona is probably smaller than Chicago, but it is still more than 4 folks.

They're playing with fire here. Even if Jan & Barry are playing politics, the supporters on either side likely won't understand that (just take a look at how the battle lines are drawn around Rand Paul). And those crazies are the ones who are going to start shooting, not Jan or Barry.

I also...

I also was very disappointed that Gov. Brewer vetoed Arizona's nullify the NDAA bill, which breezed through the legislature.

A Constitutional Crisis

Is brewing...

Get out the popcorn. Hope it doesn't hit too close to your home.

Hope you don't have to fight in the next civil war.
