Newly licensed illegals to be driving AZ streets

Under the heading “IMMIGRATION” —- slyly omitting the key word, “illegal” —- the pro-amnesty/open borders local newspaper illustrates how it has earned its name: The Periódico de la República de Arizona. The report by Daniel Gonzalez is titled in bold-faced caps, ”ROAD CLEARS FOR ‘DREAMER’ DRIVERS.

The legislative acronym D.R.E.A.M.E.R., representing Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors has been consigned to the political trash heap by the leftist, agenda-driven newspaper in favor of the softer version, implying one who is simply enjoying a deep sleep. In fact, it represents a nightmare.

The first two sentences of Gonzalez’ report deceptively uses the word “immigrant” twice when referring to illegal aliens, who have done nothing to facilitate applying for legal citizenship as true immigrants do.

“Young immigrants known as dreamers will be able to begin applying for driver’s licenses on Monday, according to a court ruling handed down Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge David G. Campbell. Campbell issued a preliminary injunction ordering Arizona to stop denying driver’s licenses to young immigrants known as dreamers.”

It will be impossible to ascertain whether these illegals arrived as infants brought by their law-breaking parents or yesterday, alone. Many already have black market licenses, as do their parents. The sale of counterfeit and stolen documents such as licenses, birth certificates and social security cards constitute a thriving business in Hispanic communities. The questions to ask are, will insurance be required prior to processing the licenses and how will such a provision be enforced?

State-issued driver’s licenses open doors of opportunity in the United States. Not only does a  license grant the privilege to operate a vehicle, it also is widely accepted as an identification card that enables the bearer to access countless services and taxpayer-funded benefits. Driver’s licenses are used to rent apartments and cars, open bank accounts, cash checks, enter secure buildings, buy guns, and board commercial aircraft.

In a statement released Thursday, Gov. Jan Brewer correctly said, “The right to determine who is issued a driver license is reserved for the states –– not the federal government or an unelected judiciary. It is outrageous that Arizona is being forced to ignore longstanding state law and comply with a flawed federal court mandate that requires the state, at least temporarily, to issue driver licenses to individuals whose presence is in violation of federal law, as established by the United States Congress.”

“At stake in this case are the fundamental issues of constitutional law and state sovereignty. Arizona has the constitutional right and authority to enforce state statute. This right must be protected. It must be defended.”

    If I were the Governor of Arizona, I would just say NO to a lawless Federal Government and tell them to go pound sand. Or make a new driver’s license that says ILLEGAL ALIEN on the top in large, bold letters.

    Michelle Malkin gets it mostly right, when she writes, “Let’s be clear. The open-borders progressives’ “DREAM Act” is an electoral nightmare. It’s not just an illegal alien student bailout. It’s a 2.1 million future Democrat voter recruitment drive. The “path to citizenship” dangled by Obama is a superhighway to generations of big government-birthed, identity politics-nursed dependents.”

    Her linked “nightmare” column was written over four years ago and that estimated 2.1 million Democrats she refers to has greatly increased. Many of them already have their own children,raised sucking at the U.S. government tit which America’s citizen workforce finances. Malkin also identifies John McCain as a buddy of leftist multi-billionaire George Soros, a man intent on destroying America.

    AG Tom Horne I believe can file an appeal and stop this court order and by the I could be wrong but why would a federal court have jurisdiction over a State License as AZ is still a Sovereign State and therefore this comes under our jurisdiction just as to vote for anyone on a State Ballot you’re required to show proof of birth, at least that’s the way it’s been up to now, or do they plan to take us to court on that one again as well. God Bless You; Van

      The appeal for a stay on the 9th Circuit ruling to SCOTUS was denied 6-3. The corrupt/criminal U.S. justice system is a poised to validate Obama’s DACA and 5 million ‘Get Out Of Mexico Free’ cards. At this point the only one who can challenge the govt/bus/media cartel’s treasonous, nation-ending enterprise and 14-year reign of terror is ISIS.

    • Seen It All says:

      Horne will be out of office within weeks. The question is will Kyl and McCain’s boy Bronovich move forward on this important issue. I’d bet my socks he won’t make a peep. He owes too much to the establishment, pro amnesy RINOs who put him in office. When he was unable to generate campaign funds, Jon Kyl sent a letter to Tucson car dealer Jim Click begging him to bring in the green stuff from his industry buddies. The illegal alien profiteers at the Chambers of Commerce also supported Bronovich.

    States and citizens have allowed the Feds to become big and control every aspect of our lives. This is a states rights issue and it’s time to get on the phone to your reps. (like McCain& Flake care). Start being heard. It’s the only way we can turn things around. No to lawless government.

  5. Clair Van Steenwyk says:

    This is a States Rights issue and either those in elected office must stand up and shout for US or we need to Stand Up and Remove them from office. God Bless You; Van

      While we share your frustration, please understand that we are unable to post your last lengthy comment that would be pages long if typed out.
      Please read our “About” page, where the issue of cut-and-pastes is addressed, as are links to personal websites.

    “Who are the “DREAMERS?” was published in The Hill a few years ago, so the numbers stated have definitely increased, although the other facts remain relevant.

  7. Aaron says:

    Time to start throwing these Federal judges in jail and tossing away the key.

  8. jon jensen says:

    Good grief now we will have more texters driving ,running into the back of my car, running me off the road, cutting me off, making me wait even longer in the drive thru. Feliz Navidad!

  9. Saguaro Sam says:

    “Dreamers” are our Nightmare.

    Considering the illegality of Obama’s many actions, why should the States even pay any attention to the Feds? Let the Feds file their lawsuits. . .

  10. Kent says:

    THIS is what California taxpayers are being forced to fund after leftwing Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown expanded driver’s licenses for illegals.

  11. LEO IN TSN says:

    Again I offer up a template for any governor to use. I offer this template, and give permission for any governor to use it.

    “I am the Governor of the great and sovereign state of (state). In my state, the citizens create the laws that we will live by. We do that with a duly elected legislature, and duly elected state judges to enforce our laws and protect our citizens. We do not invite direction or review from federal judicial legislators or regulators. We write and pass our laws by the will of the people, and our laws will stand until our people change those laws.

    I hereby declare that useless federal judicial legislation and regulation is null and void in this great state of (state). Our laws will stand. We have never, and will never, cede any authority to the federal government that is not specifically enumerated in the Constitution of the United States. Under that document and the Constitution of the great state of (state), we claim our sovereignty and freedom. For any federal judicial legislator or regulator or for any resident of this state who is unhappy with the meterological, legal, social or moral climate of this great state, I suggest you pack up and move to a more welcoming location such as San Francisco. If you aren’t even in this state, get off our backs.

    God bless the people of the great state of (state). God bless America.”
