Licenses Latest Flash Point for Obama Amnesty Plan
"Driver's licenses and other state benefits are at the heart of a new battle in the national immigration debate. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer fired the opening salvo last week, on the same day that federal authorities began accepting applications for a program aimed at helping tens of thousands of young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children," says CNN.
"Governors in Nebraska and Texas have already followed Brewer's lead. 'The state of Nebraska will continue its practice of not issuing driver's licenses, welfare benefits or other public benefits to illegal immigrants unless specifically authorized by Nebraska statute,' Gov. Dave Heineman said Friday."
