Arizona Governor Jan Brewer issued an executive order to deny young undocumented immigrants driver's licenses and other public benefits like in-state university tuition.
The order is specifically for recipients of deferred action, which is a new Obama administration policy that comes with a set of criteria (including being in the US before they turned 16 and a clean criminal record).
Brewer has already told state agencies to implement her order. All this is doing is putting more obstacles in front of undocumented immigrants, who only want the chance to have opportunities in the country that they call home.
Please tell Jan Brewer to allow benefits for undocumented individuals!
Dear Jan Brewer,
You recently issued an executive order to deny undocumented individuals -- specifically those that are recipients of deferred action -- public benefits like in-state university tuition and ID.
All this is doing is putting more obstacles in front of these individuals who deserve a chance to have access to opportunities in the USA, a country that is supposed to be a "melting pot".
Please allow benefits for undocumented individuals.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
