Brewer’s order to end migrant driver licenses ‘contradictory’ [View all]

Source: Arizona Republic {Phoenix}

Gov. Jan Brewer’s executive order denying driver’s licenses and ID cards to
undocumented immigrants who obtain work permits through President Barack Obama’s
deferred-action program is a significant change in state policy, records obtained by
The Arizona Republic show.

Over the past eight years, Arizona issued licenses and ID cards nearly 40,000 times
to non-citizens who had federal employment-authorization documents. Since Brewer’s
Aug. 15 order, the state has issued more than 1,000 driver’s licenses or ID cards to
non-citizens with work permits while denying licenses to those with work permits
issued through Obama’s program.

The data show that despite the state’s longstanding practice of issuing driver’s licenses
to non-citizens with work permits, Brewer has singled out so-called dreamers, denying
them driver’s licenses even when they have work permits.

The federal work permits are identical except for a number that identifies them as
recipients of deferred action under Obama’s program. Anyone with that number can’t
get a permit under Brewer’s order.

Well, I'm not surprised.
